Safeguarding the environment is beneficial to our customers, our service communities, and our employees. We are actively working to educate customers about the importance of energy efficiency, and we proudly support nature programs and organized efforts to restore prairie lands.
We believe it’s important to support arts and culture organizations integral to the health and vitality of the communities we serve. Local music and movie festivals, as well as theater productions and other artistic pursuits, enhance our understanding of other cultures and contribute to our education in fun and interactive ways. The arts bring us together.
Through our United Way Campaign and our own charitable outreach programs, we support a wide range of nonprofit organizations—from health and human services providers to after-school programming. Our commitment is continually strengthened in seeing the dedication and passion these groups have for their communities as well as the fulfillment we see in the many ComEd employees who donate their time and energy to organizations dedicated to making a profound impact in the lives of others.
