Even though you can choose which company supplies your natural gas and electricity, in order to make a well-informed decision, you should compare all offers from alternative suppliers to your utility’s price to make sure that you are paying the lowest rate.
Illinois law allows consumers to choose whether to buy their natural gas and electricity supply from their utility or an alternative supplier.

  • You do not need to enroll with an alternative supplier to receive your LIHEAP benefits.
  • No one helping you with your LIHEAP benefits should try to enroll you with an alternative supplier.
  • Do not sign up with an alternative supplier until you compare their offer to the price charged by your utility.
  • Compared to utilities, alternative suppliers can charge higher prices and more fees.
