Illinois Energy Alternative ComEd

Did you know that in Illinois, you can choose your power provider? Most people use their local utility company for their natural gas and electricity solutions because it’s the default option. However, they’re missing out on the many benefits offered by alternative retail electric suppliers and alternative gas suppliers. Since ARES and AGS have to compete for customers, they’re more likely to innovate and provide additional services.

Nordic Energy is a ComEd Alternative

If you live or own a business in Illinois, you may be using ComEd as your power provider. Nordic Energy is an alternative energy supplier in the same area, which means you can easily make the switch.

Of course, you may wonder what an alternative energy supplier is and why you should choose one over your local utility company. Let’s break down how AGS and ARES, such as Nordic Energy, work.

Why Choose an AGS or ARES?

AGS and ARES are typically independently owned companies, which means they’re in fierce competition for customers. This competition is usually beneficial to consumers as it drives innovation, affordability, and service quality.

On the other hand, utility companies may rest on their laurels, knowing their customers aren’t aware of alternatives. Their plans may not be as flexible, forcing customers to choose options that don’t fit their needs.

How Does Switching Affect Your Power?

One of the best things about using an AGS or ARES is that there’s no change on your end. Nordic Energy and other alternative suppliers use the same power infrastructure as local utility companies, which means no upgrades or renovations are necessary. Your energy comes from a different source but along the same gas and power lines initially installed in your home or business.

Who Do You Call When You Have Power Issues?

Utility companies are responsible for maintaining infrastructure. So if you have issues with your gas or power lines, you’ll still contact ComEd for resolution.

Why Choose Us

Nordic Energy isn’t the only AGS out there — in fact, competition is the point of alternative suppliers. So why choose Nordic Energy over other companies?

Multiple Energy Sources

One of the things we’re most proud of is our multiple energy sources. Since we have several vendors to choose from, we can negotiate the best deals, which allows us to offer competitive pricing and additional services to our customers. It also means our energy is more reliable than one-source competitors since we can switch vendors if something happens along the supply line.


Before you make the switch, you probably have a few questions. We know that staying informed is integral to making good business decisions, which is why we’ve collected and answered the questions most frequently asked by interested parties.

How Does the Nordic Energy Rewards Program Work?

We want to show our appreciation to loyal customers, which is why we developed the Rewards Program. Every month you’re with us, you’ll accumulate 50 Rewards Dollars, which you can use at a variety of businesses:

  • Hilton

  • Subway

  • Chili’s

  • Carnival

  • Oakley


Additionally, you’ll be eligible for free giveaways, discounts with local restaurants, travel specials, and more.

How Does Pricing Differ?

One of the most significant differences between AGS and utility companies is pricing. Typically, utility companies have variable pricing, which changes as market prices change. AGS and ARES, on the other hand, have fixed rates.


What does this mean for you? With alternative suppliers, you can estimate your bill every month since you know what you’ll be charged for use. With utility companies, your energy use can stay the same, but your bill still fluctuates, making it harder to budget.
