The States and Utilities We Serve - Deregulated Energy Map

Consumers in Illinois’ deregulated energy market can choose to procure their power from independent suppliers incentivized to offer competitive commercial energy rates. Illinois deregulated its energy market in 2002, after experiencing some of the highest electricity rates in the country. Several years later, the State General Assembly passed the Retail Electric Competition Act to help retail electric providers (REPs) better serve residential and small business customers. Illinois boasted some of the country’s lowest energy rates in 2013, and it’s still notable for its affordable energy today.


Illinois Energy Statistics

Illinois is one of the nation’s largest energy-producing states due to its thriving industrial sector.

It’s currently ranked first in the nation in net electricity generation from nuclear power, and the state’s six nuclear plants accounted for 12% of U.S. nuclear power generation.

The energy usage required to sustain Illinois’ petroleum refining and coal mining enterprises make it a national leader in consumption as well.
