We care about our employees, contractors, and customers and our efforts will ensure that we are prepared to manage potential impacts from the spread of COVID-19 as we monitor the developments closely. We're here to help our customers through financial hardship. We're suspending disconnects for customers unable to pay their bills and waiving new late payments charges through at least May 1st. We'll be working with customers on a case-by-case basis to establish payment arrangements and identify energy assistance options to address their specific needs.

The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program provides energy-saving offerings specially designed for income eligible customers to easily improve home and building energy efficiency.
Some offerings allow customers to take control of their own energy costs at home while others are designed for property owners, managers and developers. Either way, eligible customers can reduce energy use and start saving.
Homeowners may qualify to receive free weatherization improvements and free installation of ENERGY STAR® certified LEDs, programmable thermostats, advanced power strips, faucet aerators, showerheads, pipe insulation and more. ComEd has partnered with the Chicago Bungalow Association, the Illinois Home Weatherization Assistance Program (IHWAP) and community action agencies to help customers take advantage of these energy-saving services.
To qualify for free home energy upgrades, ComEd customers must meet household income at or below 80% Area Median Income (AMI). AMI varies, depending on where you live within the ComEd service territory. The chart below describes the maximum qualifying household income for most of the Chicago metropolitan area:
