Securing gas as part of our energy portfolio will preserve access to clean energy that consumers can afford. Today, low income residents in minority neighborhoods are forced to spend more on energy than those from the same wage bracket living in white neighborhoods.* Homes using natural gas however save an average of $879/year compared to those using electric appliances, and natural gas prices are projected to remain affordable well into the future.

Energy efficiency

Access to natural gas also jump-starts economic growth by attracting new businesses and manufacturers and then supports their continued success. In Illinois, where we serve 2.2 million customers, the Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) found the state's $19 billion agribusiness and $108 billion manufacturing industry both heavily rely on natural gas.
