Smart Electricity Options

Whether you rent or own your home, smart electricity options can help you save money on your electricity bill.

I like knowing how much energy I’m using and when so I can take greater control over my energy use and costs. I check prices and track my usage so I can adjust my energy use to take advantage of lower night and weekend rates.

Elevate is a national leader in smart grid enabled programs like demand response and dynamic pricing programs. In 2003, we piloted a program that allowed residential customers to pay less for electricity during off-peak hours. The program was so successful that today all major Illinois utilities offer smart electricity options!

ComEd’s Hourly Pricing

Today, we work with Illinois utility ComEd to administer its real-time hourly electricity option. ComEd’s Hourly Pricing allows customers to pay the hourly market price for electricity instead of a default fixed-price rate. Participants can save money by shifting their energy use to mornings, evenings, and weekends when real-time prices are typically lower.

Hourly Pricing provides notifications about the best times to reduce energy use, seasonal energy saving tips, monthly savings reports, tools to automate savings, and live customer support.

Call us at 888-202-7787 or visit ComEd’s Hourly Pricing website to enroll or learn more.
