One year ago today, Constellation Energy began offering Illinois (US) residents an easy way to get low energy rates and embrace green energy by choosing Constellation as their home electricity supplier.

Today, thousands of Illinois homeowners and renters have taken advantage of Constellation’s offers to save on home electric rates and in the process have helped Constellation surpass its goal of more than 1 million residential customers nationwide. As a national competitive energy supplier able to leverage energy market prices, Constellation is currently offering some of Illinois’s residents home electric supply rate savings off their current rates.

In addition to meeting the residential customer desire for green energy supply, Constellation has worked closely in the past year with Chicago, Illinois’s sports franchises—Chicago Bears (US National Football League), Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs (Major League Baseball)—to enhance environmental stewardship. Constellation is looking forward to adding the Chicago Blackhawks (National Hockey League) and Chicago Bulls (National Basketball Association) to its roster.

Constellation supports the sports teams’ sustainability goals through “green games” by purchasing Green-e Energy Certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) to match the electricity use on each game day. RECs represent the environmental benefit of electricity generated by wind and solar and, therefore, avoid carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
