Illinois Energy Alternative Ameren | Nordic Energy

Bridge with light in Illinois

Did you know that you have your choice of natural gas and electricity solutions? Many homeowners use their local utility company not because it’s the best but because they’re not aware of other options. Unfortunately, they’re missing out on the many benefits offered by alternative gas suppliers such as Nordic Energy.


The good news is, it’s easy to make the switch. AGS and ARES use existing infrastructure to deliver energy, which means you don't have to worry about expensive renovations to get the power you need.

Nordic Energy Is an Ameren Alternative

ARES and AGS offer competitive rewards and flexibility since we need to bring in customers. Your local utility company doesn’t have the same drive for innovation, which means you may miss out on perks.

So what happens if you decide to make the switch? Nordic Energy Services will provide the gas or electricity you need through your home’s existing system. It’s really as easy as that.

What if something happens to your gas or power line? If there’s damage to the infrastructure, you’ll call Ameren for assistance. Why call Ameren? Utility companies are obligated to maintain the infrastructure, which means they’re responsible for fixing issues even if you’re getting your power solutions from an AGS or ARES.

Why Choose Us

Nordic Energy is an independently owned gas and energy provider. We’ve worked in the deregulated market for a combined 170 years, giving us the experience and perspective necessary to adjust to our customers’ needs. We’re committed to affordability and providing reliable energy to residents. As a result, over 140,000 RCE accounts have switched to Nordic Energy.

Excellent Customer Service

As a competitive business, customer service is high on our list of priorities. We know that customers don’t stick around if they’re not getting quick solutions — improved service is why many people leave their utility company in the first place.

Are you an industrial or commercial enterprise? When you choose Nordic Energy as your power provider, you also get access to our additional services:

  • Strategies to reduce operational costs

  • Strategies to manage risk

  • Strategies to meet energy needs

Multiple Energy Sources

Many utility companies have one source for their energy. That means they pay what that source demands. Nordic Energy, on the other hand, has several energy sources. Since we have multiple options, we can choose the best deal and even negotiate more favorable terms. Great deals put us in a position to offer more to our customers.


Quick Operational Speed

When you have a question, you don’t want to wait hours for the answer. We know that operational speed is an essential part of customer service, which is why we respond as quickly as possible. That extends to quotes; when you request a quote from Nordic Energy, you can expect a response in minutes.


If you’ve never gotten energy from an AGS or ARES before, you probably have some questions. Nordic Energy is committed to making sure the transition to our services is as smooth as possible, which is why we’ve compiled the most frequently asked questions from new customers. If you have further concerns not addressed in this section, we’re more than happy to speak with you about them.

How Is Pricing Determined?

ARES and AGS have fixed-rate contracts, which protect your wallet from the ups and downs of the market. In contrast, your local utility company likely has variable rates, which means you don’t know what you’ll be charged from month to month. If you’re conscientious about your energy bill, choosing an AGS or ARES can help you predict what you owe.

How Can You Benefit From the Rewards Program?

Many businesses offer rewards to their customers, so why shouldn’t energy companies? Here at Nordic Energy, we want to show our gratitude to consumers who’ve decided we’re the best option for their power needs.

That’s why we award customers 50 Reward Dollars every month, just for being enrolled with us. You can spend these Reward Dollars on a wide variety of perks:

  • Entertainment venues

  • Restaurants

  • Travel

  • Online shopping
