ORANGEBURG, N.Y., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Major Energy, (www.MajorEnergy.com), an A+ BBB rated ESCO (Energy Service Company), was approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission to launch their electric service for the first time into Illinois within the Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) service area.
Major Energy currently serves the residential and commercial customers in the deregulated natural gas and electric markets of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. Beginning December 11, 2012, they will be available to customers throughout the ComEd territory which includes Chicago and borders Iroquois County to the south (roughly Interstate 80), the Wisconsin border to the north, the Iowa border to the west and the Indiana border to the east.
"Illinois – and its great city of Chicago – is the quintessential spot for our first real foray into the mid-west," explains Eliott Wolbrom, Director of Marketing of Major Energy. "With the tremendous success and growth Major Energy has seen in the big cities of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland, venturing into the ComEd area of Illinois is an ideal strategic move for our company and our customers. We are very excited to offer the customers of Illinois a "white-glove" level of customer service, aggressive pricing and new and innovative ideas in energy supply. In order to introduce our services to this area and to create a lasting rapport with the residents of Illinois, we felt that it was essential to come out of the gate with a really strong value for them, both in pricing and in service. I'm confident we have done both."
Current household electricity rates in ComEd are estimated to be about $.0831/kWh and they are expected to stay there through the end of May 2013. Major Energy's electric service offers a rate of $.0699/kWh. Based on homes using an average of 10,000/kWh per year, that's a potential savings of 16%.
The company will be offering fixed rate options in early 2013. Fixed rates offer customers the freedom of stability paying the preset rate over the course of the year, protecting consumers from unexpected price swings.
