On National Energy Efficiency Day, ComEd reports customers' energy savings
CHICAGO (Oct. 7, 2020) – On National Energy Efficiency Day today, ComEd announced that customers have saved more than $5 billion on their energy bills as a result of the company's energy efficiency program, the equivalent of removing 5.2 million cars off the road, reducing over 53 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emitted into the air and powering 5.2 million homes for a year.
The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program, launched in 2008, is one of the largest programs in the nation offering residential, business and public sector customers a variety of options that can help them cut back on their energy usage, which saves money and helps the environment.
"The average monthly household bill is lower than it was a decade ago," said ComEd CEO, Joe Dominguez. "Thanks to the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program, the average customer has saved about $1,250 by participating in the offerings – that's enough to cover the cost of an average residential energy bill for 15 months. We want customers to know there are options available to help them reduce their energy use and save money, especially as people spend more time at home."
The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program has more than 35 different offerings to save money and energy. Residential offerings include:
