Urgent: Fight Electric and gas rip-offs

In recent years, Illinois consumers with alternative electric suppliers have overpaid by about $400 million! Please help us fight electric and gas rip-offs. Urge the Illinois House to support House Amendment 4 to Senate Bill 1531. The amendment would:

  • Require the utility’s supply price to be clearly stated during alternative supplier telemarketing calls and displayed on all alternative supplier marketing materials for door-to-door solicitations. The price would also have to be displayed on every consumer’s utility bills.

  • Require suppliers to notify customers when their rates rise.

  • Prevent automatic contract renewals for customers with an alternative supplier plan.

  • Require suppliers to report their rates quarterly to the Illinois Commerce Commission and Illinois Attorney General.

  • Improve enforcement actions against suppliers’ unlawful and deceptive marketing practices.

  • Protect public energy assistance funds, LIHEAP (the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program) and PIPP (the Percentage of Income Payment Plan) from being wasted paying for exorbitant rates charged by alternative gas/electric suppliers.

Tell your representative to stand up to electric and gas rip-offs and support House Amendment 4 to Senate Bill 1531.
