    Where is Energy Connection?

    Although we service candidates in all 50 states and Canada, our headquarters is located at 3501 Woodhead Dr, Northbrook, IL.

    What is a utility company?

    The company that is responsible for transporting power to your home or business. The utility is also responsible for maintaining the power grid and doing onsite work such as installing and reading meters, and responding to power outages.

    What is a utility supplier?

    The company that generates and sells the actual electricity or gas. In closed energy markets, the utility company is the only company allowed to be a supplier. In open energy markets you have a choice. Energy Connection interviews and qualifies on an ongoing basis 50 suppliers to provide the maximum competitive platform to get the lowest rate and best terms available. 

    What is the difference between utility suppliers?

    Utility suppliers differ in methods of procurement and also in price and terms. Because energy is a commodity, the physical energy that powers your home or business is indifferent to suppliers.

    My utility supplier is a reliable company. Why should I switch now?

    Although we do not always advocate our customers to switch suppliers, in an open energy market, Energy Connection insists it is always smart to explore your options. It should lead savings, price security, and/or cleaner energy. Your utility company is still responsible for service, delivery, billing and reliability of your gas and electricity.

    Can I switch my supplier if I am already under contract?

    You may have an early termination fee if you exit your current contract early. We can get you a new contract with a start date to correlate with the end date on your current one. You can lock in a rate and protect your home or business from future price increases.

    Will my service change?

    Absolutely not. We only change where the energy source is coming from. Even in open energy markets, the utility company is still in charge of storing and managing the service of energy to your home or business.

    What are the benefits of locking in a fixed rate?

    You can enjoy the price consistency and reliability for the length of your contract that you choose. Instead of guessing what your bill will be each month, you will know what the rate will be. Enabling you to budget, forecast and protect you from future rate increases.
