Steps to save money

#1 Check your electricity bill.

Take a look at your electric bill to see how much you spend each month. Hourly Pricing is likely to be a good option if your monthly electric bill is greater than $50 and you are able to shift electricity use to off-peak times.

#2 Get the details.

The program guide and FAQs provide more information that can help you decide whether real-time pricing is right for you. Or, you can call one of our Hourly Pricing specialists at 888-202-7787 for assistance. Haga clic aquí para información sobre el programa en Español.

#3 Enroll in the program.

You can either enroll online or print and mail us your enrollment form. Once you enroll, it typically takes between one to three billing cycles before you become active on ComEd’s Hourly Pricing program/hourly rate.

#4 Shift your usage and save.

To manage your electricity costs, shift some of your usage to off-peak hours when the price of electricity is lower. ComEd’s Hourly Pricing program offers a variety of tools to help you keep track of prices and manage your usage and costs.
