PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Energy Plus Holdings, one of the nation's fastest-growing energy companies, today announced its entry into the Illinois market, with service availability beginning today, February 17, 2011. As the only energy company to offer all customers ongoing rewards -- including exclusive travel rewards through its relationships with American Airlines and United Airlines -- Energy Plus provides unique benefits unavailable from Commonwealth Edison Company (ComEd) or other independent energy suppliers in the state.
In addition to giving residents and businesses the opportunity to earn valuable rewards, such as cash-back, airline miles, hotel and rail points or college savings, Energy Plus offers customers a certified Green Option that supports the creation of 100 percent pure wind power, one of the cleanest forms of electricity available. The Company's risk-free services, which are supported by a high-touch, in-house call center, can be cancelled at any time and never include enrollment fees, monthly service fees, switching fees, or cancellation fees.
"Above all, we are committed to providing more than just electricity. We are also focused on delivering competitive market rates, superior service and unique benefits, including offers from leading airlines with hubs in Chicago," said Kevin Kleinschmidt, President of Energy Plus. "Because of our commitment to customer satisfaction, we have been able to establish ourselves as the electricity supplier of choice for approximately 150,000 customers, and we are thrilled by the opportunity to extend our offering to millions of Illinois residents in the ComEd service territory."
Until recently, Illinois residents had only one option for their residential energy supplier, which was ComEd. Now, due in part to a recent Illinois Commerce Commission decision that enables alternative electric suppliers to bill customers directly through ComEd, residents have a greater array of choices as independent suppliers enter the market. Energy Plus is the only independent electricity supplier in the state of Illinois that offers a unique, customized rewards program to each of its residential and business customers. Founded in 2007, Energy Plus services are now available in seven states including Illinois, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas.
Energy Plus is able to offer residents a competitive supply rate that is currently 10 percent below the posted rate of ComEd. Energy Plus offers a market-rate price in order to provide the greatest flexibility possible to customers. Combined with a rewards program and outstanding service, the Company believes this provides the greatest value to the electricity customers of Illinois.
