WILLOWBROOK, Ill., Jan. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordic Energy Services, LLC, a leader in alternative energy suppliers throughout Illinois and NW Indiana, has filed the necessary paperwork to allow them to bring the high level of service experienced by their valued commercial customers to the residential customers of Illinois. Recently, Nordic submitted applications with both ComEd (servicing northern Illinois) and Ameren (servicing southern Illinois) which, once approved, will allow them to provide residential customers with a local, cost-saving energy alternative throughout the entire state. Beginning March, 2011, Nordic expects to have electricity products available to the approximately 4.4 million residential customers in the ComEd and Ameren areas.
Homeowners who choose to go with an alternative supplier enjoy multiple benefits. While they continue to get one bill from either ComEd or Ameren, they will save each month by having their electricity supplied by Nordic. Additionally, should there be an outage or maintenance issues, they will still be able to contact ComEd or Ameren for assistance. Essentially, the customer will get the best of both worlds. Low-cost energy and excellent customer service from Nordic with high quality maintenance support from a major supplier.
Jim Deering, President and CEO of Nordic Energy Services remarked, "The recent Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) decision that allows alternative retail electric suppliers to bill through the provider was a major win for residential customers." He went on to add, "It's an exciting and simple, cost-saving option for consumers. ComEd or Ameren will be delivering the electricity and billing for it, but the actual commodity is from us. We are excited and ready to educate homeowners about their options and provide the same level of service that our commercial customers have enjoyed for many years."
