ComEd Petition on PTC Bill Message

ComEd filed a petition with the Commission asking "whether certain provisions of Part 452 of the Commission’s Rules (83 Ill. Adm. Code § 452) concerning integrated distribution companies are applicable to ComEd’s plan to include a bill message setting forth “Price to Compare” information on the customer bills for the majority of residential and commercial accounts that have the premises attribute of 15,000 kWh or less annual usage (excluding only those on the Single Bill Option or the summary bill option)." ComEd notes that current regulations do not require it to post the Price to Compare (PTC) on the bills of shopping customers and that the PTC is posted on the Commission website. Additionally, Commission rules for integrated distribution utilities provide that such entities "shall not promote, advertise, or market with regard to the offering or provision of any retail electric supply service," although they may engage in legitimate consumer education efforts.

In a report filed by the Commission's Office of Retail Market Development this summer, it was recommended that the Commission require the electric utilities to include the PTC on all bills issued to residential and small commercial customers. ComEd filed the petition to seek a Commission determination that the inclusion of a PTC bill message would be a permissible consumer education effort rather than an impermissible promotion of a retail electric supply service.

The PTC bill message would appear as follows:
PRICE TO COMPARE: The ComEd electric supply price to compare is cents per kWh. For more information and supplier offers visit This price does not include a monthly purchased electricity adjustment factor that may range between +$0.005 and -$0.005 per kWh. For more information on ComEd bill line items go to

ComEd requested an expedited decision so that it may begin including the PTC bill message in December. The full text of the ComEd Petition is available on the NEM Website.
