Commonwealth Edison said yesterday that new energy supply rates established by the Illinois Power Agency (IPA) will result in a monthly bill reduction of $2 for customers on default service, starting June 1
Official updated prices to compare were not yet posted by the ICC.
ComEd's new tariffed Purchased Electricity Charges, which reflect the majority of the total price to compare, are as follows:
ComEd Purchased Electricity Charges
Jun 2015- Oct 2015-
Sept 2015 May 2016
Residential 6.144 6.283
Watt-hour Non-Electric Space Heating 6.148 6.226
Demand Non-Electric Space Heating 6.123 6.225
Nonresidential Electric Space Heating 5.485 6.048
Dusk to Dawn Lighting 2.318 2.769
General Lighting 5.500 6.037
Purchased Electricity Charges (PECs) are designated on retail customer bills as the Electricity Supply Charge. PECs include Supply Base Uncollectible Cost Factors (Supply BUFs) and PECs incorporate Incremental Supply Uncollectible Cost Factors (ISUFs)
The total price to compare will include the PECs listed above, transmission, and reconciliation (the PEA)
ComEd also said that an update to its bypassable transmission charge results in a "negligible" change for the average residential customer.
For comparison, the current ComEd Purchased Electricity Charge for residential customers is 6.529 cents per kWh, and 6.482 cents per kWh for Watt-hour Non-Electric Space Heating.
