Illinois legislation promises a renewable energy revolution. But who would pay?

Isn’t that the age-old question? Who will pay? Perhaps it’s the actual cost, the time or the impact to our environment that will be paying the price.

Illinois has two pieces of legislation that could alter the energy, environment, and economics of the state.

These two bills differ in supporting how to obtain more renewables as both want to increase the current goal to 100% renewable by 2030.

  • The Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) largely builds on the 2017 Future Energy Jobs Act that caused a solar installation rush. The CEJA would expand incentives for training and jobs while constructing more solar. They are supported by environmental and community groups.
  • The Path to 100 is supported by the renewables industry and would accelerate the goal of 100% clean energy in Illinois.

How it gets paid: essentially by changing how the capacity market procures the energy Illinois needs.

Both bills would encourage the move toward lower priced solar while minimizing the disruption to oil, gas, and nuclear.

The debate is in the right place. Solar energy is the cheaper cost and causes less impact to the environment. Creating incentives now to capitalize growth and allow transition into this less costly energy source will setup Illinois for the future.

Realgy Settlement with IAG

PRESS RELEASE

Realgy Settlement with IAG

20 AUGUST 2019 | BY: REALGY, LLC

Realgy Energy Services recently settled an investigation with the Illinois Attorney General (IAG) over allegations of non-compliance with consumer protection laws.

The IAG investigation stemmed from a TV report and a unique Realgy offer; Guaranteed Savings below the utility. Realgy is the only energy marketer in Illinois that guarantees its energy rate will be below the utility. The investigation covered 7 years, the entire time Realgy Energy Services provided service to residential customers in Illinois.

The result, Realgy provided savings per below:

Utility Savings Energy Savings ($)
NICOR, Peoples and North Shore Yes Over $300,000
Ameren Yes Over $400,000
ComEd Yes Over $110,000

 

Michael Vrtis of Realgy Energy Services stated, “The investigation looked at our energy costs paid by the customer compared to what the customer would’ve paid for the utility’s cost each month during the 7 years we served residential customers. Customer savings resulted from the fact that Realgy’s energy costs were on average less than the utility.”

So, Realgy saved Illinois customers money.

However, Realgy reached a settlement with the IAG to refund $181,000 to ComEd customers. Again, Michael Vrtis, “Yes, even though our energy costs were less during this time, we had a high turnover of customers. The resulting early termination fees paid by these customers when added to the savings brought the total costs to ComEd customers above the utility.”

Realgy acknowledged the IAG findings in agreeing to the refund as its goal is to provide savings as compared to the utility costs. “The IAG conducted a fair review of Realgy’s practices and we agreed to the refund and to changes already made to our sales practices like eliminating door to door enrollments and monitoring our sales agents more closely,” stated Michael Vrtis. The IAG assembled a list of transgressions they uncovered during their investigation of many other energy marketers. The list was included in the settlement even though Realgy was already in compliance with them.

Realgy reported that the bulk of the refunded amount of $100,704.06 will go to 1,871 existing customers and the remainder to clients that were served by Realgy between January 2012 and January 2019. The average refund is $36.60.
