The electric companies love you. Every month they can count on you to not review your bill, check for competitive pricing and they are taking that to the bank! You’ve helped pay for a lot of lavish Thanksgiving feasts for energy executives today.
It’s Thanksgiving, so don’t be a Turkey – compare prices on your electricity. Perhaps you’ll even find that you can get 100% renewable electricity for cheaper than traditional, dirty electric. If you don’t have the time to shop the electric markets let us do it for you. For $5 a month we’re saving our customers $10, $25 – many as much as $50 every month!
And, because we are thankful for our customers we have incentives to help you sign your friends up such as a free Nest thermostat. Loosen that belt after dinner, grab your electricity bill and sign up to start saving.
We blogged last week about the seasons changing – and the impact that will have on your electric bills. And it is about to get real in Northern, IL!
We are fans of Danny Neal and the Stormchaser’s blog. This morning we woke up to news from Danny that Illinois can expect multiple inches of snow this Friday night and Saturday morning.
Hop on over to Danny’s blog and follow him on Facebook for great weather tracking…and, after you’ve done that – sign up with Energy Simply so you’ll know that you’re not paying way too much for electricity in these cold, dark winter months.
It’s November and winter is coming. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 65% of energy costs are tied to heating or lighting; and these are costs that will increase in the winter months:
- Colder outside temperatures mean more energy is needed to heat your home and water
- Shorter winter daylight hours mean more energy is needed to light your home
There’s a good chance you’re probably paying more than you need for the electricity you’re going to need more of. Energy Simply is a consumer-focused service that monitors the complex and frequently changing energy market and helps you get the best deal, personalized FOR YOUR electricity usage.

A large number of people in the Chicagoland area are with their incumbent electricity provider, ComEd, and likely paying too much for electricity.
From, October 2015 through May 2016, ComEd is charging its customers $0.07006/kWh. If you’re in a two-bedroom apartment and using 1,000 kWh/month, you’re paying $70.06 (plus a fixed delivery fee) per month. If you’re in a four-bedroom house using 2,000 kWh/month, you’re paying $140.12 (plus delivery fee) per month.
If you just wanted the cheapest plan, you could be saving about 15% and if you wanted to go green with 100% renewable energy, you could still be saving 5% compared to your default ComEd rate.
Energy Simply actively monitors the Illinois energy market including the nearly 80 plans available for Chicagoland residents as of early October and watches for the best deals for our customers. We automatically switch you to the cheapest electricity provider for your home based on applying our proprietary models to your own energy usage.
