Say No To $864 Million in Higher Bills, And Yes To The Clean Energy Jobs Act

A recent ruling by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) is expected to raise future bills for ComEd customers by up to $864 million a year. This is urgent: Illinois must pass the Clean Energy Jobs Act to protect customers from these higher bills.

Read CUB’s statement: “In the wake of today’s ruling by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), consumers throughout the Chicago-area and Northern Illinois could face the largest hit to electric bills in state history—unless state lawmakers move swiftly to pass the Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA), pending legislation designed to protect customers from soaring bills.”

Read CUB’s Q&A to learn about the ruling, and why the Clean Energy Jobs Act can fix this mess.

Take action: Urge the General Assembly and Gov. Pritzker to pass the Clean Energy Jobs Act to protect customers from these higher bills. (We were happy to hear Gov. Pritzker recently call for Illinois to pass strong energy legislation: “It’s time to put consumers and climate first,” he said.)
