What does it mean that I can choose my alternative natural gas supplier?

In Illinois, natural gas customers may choose an alternative natural gas supplier to supply their natural gas instead of their utility.   Choosing a licensed alternative natural gas supplier provides a great opportunity to lock in your price for natural gas with a fixed rate and shop for a more competitive rate.

Your utility will continue to operate their natural gas lines, conduct billing, and respond to natural gas emergencies.

What can Illinois Energy offer me?

For one, natural gas plans that your utility does not offer.  Choosing an energy plan doesn’t have to be confusing. Whether you prefer the security of a locked-in rate or the flexibility of a variable plan, compare our plans and find one that’s perfect for you. 

And, you can expect exceptional customer service and outstanding perks.  We pride ourselves on our customer service.  If you have any questions, we are here to help.
