If you are a ComEd Illinois customer, Hero Power will match 100% of your electricity use with renewable wind energy at the same rate as ComEd.
That means instead of using coal to power your home, you will be using 100% wind energy, and it only takes a few minutes to switch.
Your ComEd service and bill does not change at all, and Hero Power always charges the same rate as ComEd.
Plus, WCPT listeners (or anybody really) can get a $25 bill credit when you switch over to Hero Power today (see below).
If you are not a ComEd customer, anyone in the U.S.A. can sign up with Arcadia Power to get $25 when you switch to wind energy.
How Hero Power Works
1. To sign up with Hero Power, you simply provide your ComEd account number and service address.
2. ComEd then switches the responsibility for your power supply over to Hero Power.
3. Basically, your ComEd bill consists of 3 portions:
- ComEd’s charges for transmission and distribution of your power supply.
- The actual costs of the power supply itself (ComEd uses coal power supply sources).
- Taxes and fees.
4. Once you switch over to Hero Power, they match the power supply portion of your bill with 100% renewable wind electricity at the same rate as ComEd’s coal charges.
5. To do so, Hero Power uses your power supply payments to buy Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from the Osage Municipal Utilities Wind Farm in Osage, Iowa.
6. You pay ComEd, ComEd sends the power supply portion of your payment to Hero Power, and Hero Power pays the OMU Wind Farm.
7. The OMU Wind Farm then generates enough renewable energy to match 100% of your electricity consumption based on the RECs purchased.
8. You continue to pay ComEd the same rate for your electric bill. Nothing changes with your power. No service interruptions. No infrastructure changes. No appointments needed.
