FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nordic Energy Services Set to Expand into Residential Energy Market
Nordic Energy to offer electric service to residential customers throughout Illinois.
Willowbrook, IL, January 26 – Nordic Energy Services, LLC,
a leader in alternative energy suppliers throughout Illinois and NW Indiana, has
filed the necessary paperwork to allow them to bring the high level of service
experienced by their valued commercial customers to the residential customers
of Illinois. Recently, Nordic submitted applications with the Illinois Commerce
Commission (ICC) which, once approved, will allow them to provide residential
customers in the ComEd and Ameren areas (northern and southern service suppliers
respectively) with a local, cost-saving energy alternative thus expanding Nordic's
electricity coverage area to the entire state. Beginning March, 2011, Nordic
expects to have electricity products available to the approximately 4.4
million residential customers in the ComEd and Ameren areas.
Homeowners who choose to go with an alternative supplier enjoy multiple
benefits. While they continue to get one bill from either ComEd or Ameren,
they will save each month by having their electricity supplied by Nordic.
Additionally, should there be an outage or maintenance issues, they will
still be able to contact ComEd or Ameren for assistance. Essentially, the
customer will get the best of both worlds. Low-cost energy and excellent
customer service from Nordic with high quality maintenance support from a
Jim Deering, President and CEO of Nordic Energy Services remarked,
"The recent developments that allow alternative retail electric
suppliers to bill through the ComEd and Ameren are a major win for
residential customers." He went on to add, "It's an exciting and
simple, cost-saving option for consumers. CoEd or Ameren will be
delivering the electricity and billing for it, but the actual
commodity is from us. We are excited and ready to educate homeowners
about their options and provide the same level of service that our
commercial customers have enjoyed for many years."
