Our popular Free Energy Program has changed to give you more Free Energy – and more freedom!

  • Here’s the biggest change: No more clock! That means there’s no more deadline for gathering your 15 Customers, and no more deadline for replacing Customers! Just maintain 15 energized Customers in any month, and you earn a credit! And that doesn’t mean 15 payments; calculations will now be based on average daily energy cost, instead. You can get more Free Energy, and we can now accommodate all bill schedules

  • Free Energy referral credit is sent via:

    • Ameren – Check

    • NICOR – Credit

    • ComEd – Check

    • Peoples Gas – Credit

    • North Shore Gas - Credit
