A message from ComEd
ComEd has taken additional steps to help ensure its residential customers across northern Illinois have access to electric service during this critical time. If customers are currently unable to travel to a walk-in location to make a payment, as a reminder ComEd is not disconnecting service for non-payment and is waiving all new late payment charges through May 1, 2020, or until the end of the  governor's  state of emergency declaration, whichever is later. Since it is not critical at this time to visit a ComEd payment location to make a payment, ComEd offers mail and electronic payment options. We are also working with customers who contact us to establish payment arrangements and identify energy assistance options to address their specific needs. 
We’re calling on residents to get creative! Send us your pictures and videos on how you and your families are staying positive and having fun through the State’s "Stay at Home Order". We will collect this content through the month of April, and feature it on our website and social pages.
