Commonwealth Edison Company (ComEd), is a unit of Chicago-based Exelon Corporation. ComEd provides electric service to approximately 3.8 million customers across Northern Illinois via more than 90,000 miles of power lines in an 11,400-square-mile territory. 
Since 2001, ComEd has invested more than $5 billion in the electrical transmission and distributions system to continue to provide customers with the quality service they expect and deserve, while increasing grid efficiency. 

While providing safe, reliable electric service is a key component to ComEd’s business portfolio, it is just one of the many services that ComEd provides its’ customers. Additional services such as helping customers discover new ways to save money on their electric bill and showing customers how they can help the environment by decreasing their carbon footprint, are just a couple examples of how ComEd is doing their part to better the communities they serve. 

In 2015 alone, ComEd employees volunteered more than 7,000 hours at local non-profit organizations and reduced their carbon footprint equivalent to planting more than 50,000 trees by using more than 1.2 million gallons of B20 biodiesel. 

 

 

“To provide cleaner, greener power to our fleet, Commonwealth Edison turned to B20 biodiesel and hybrid technology around 2014. Today we operate one of the largest private fleets of biodiesel vehicles in the U.S. and consume more than 1.2 million gallons of B20 annually. On top of that, alternative fuel vehicles now represent 70% of our total fleet.”
 
“By investing in new technology and purchasing biodiesel fuel for our fleet, we have been able to realize several key environmental and economic benefits.”
