Interstate Gas Supply Acquires Accent Energy, Expanding Electric Service to Illinois, Pennsylvania Email This Story February 24, 2011
Interstate Gas Supply has recently acquired Accent Energy, Interstate Gas Supply disclosed in applying for an Illinois alternative retail electric supplier license.
In Illinois, IGS Energy is seeking to serve all customer classes, including residential customers, at Commonwealth Edison.
Accent's COO, Raymond Hamman, now also serves as Interstate Gas Supply's Director of Electric Supply, as IGS expands from Accent's current electric footprint of Texas (as Dynowatt) and New York. Accent is also active in the New York and California gas markets, with minimal overlap with IGS, and has over 100,000 customers across all commodities and markets.
As only noted in Matters, Interstate Gas Supply applied for a Maryland electric supplier license last week (2/18). IGS also reported in its Illinois application that it has applied for a Pennsylvania electric supplier license; that filing has not yet been docketed by the Pennsylvania PUC.
IGS Energy said that it serves over 800,000 residential and small commercial customers in eight states.
Interstate Gas Supply is not seeking authority for single billing services in Illinois.
