ComEd Offers Assistance Funds

April 8, 2013 11:11 AM
Park Ridge residents who are facing the possibility of disconnection by ComEd may be able to seek assistance through the City, thanks to a $10 million assistance fund recently donated by the energy provider. With warmer temperatures on the way, ComEd will be ending its winter moratorium on service disconnections, but the fund helps provide needy residents with a way to continue receiving service.
Last year, approximately 32,000 customers took advantage of the assistance program. Typically, customers who have received a service suspension notice can avoid a disconnection by paying the balance owed, or by contacting ComEd and requesting to arrange a payment plan. In other cases, ComEd customers may be eligible for some of the assistance funds through its CARE programs: CHAMP (ComEd Helps Active Military Personnel), Residential Special Hardship Program, and Non-Profit Assistant Programs.  
The assistance funds are part of a five-year $50 million commitment, and a result of the Smart Grid law enacted in 2011 to help ComEd customers who are struggling to pay their utility bill.  Please contact ComEd for additional information at 888-806-CARE (2273) or visit
