83% of Illinois Residents Want the Freedom to Choose #CleanEnergy

Maintaining Energy Choice Ranks High for Residents Regardless of Political Party


Chicago, IL - May 30, 2018 ( Newswire) A new poll shows that Illinois residents overwhelmingly want to be able to choose their energy supplier, choose clean energy, and want more renewable energy in the Illinois power system. The poll commissioned by CleanChoice Energy, a renewable energy company that provides 100% clean electricity to customers across the country, was conducted by SurveyUSA. SurveyUSA interviewed 550 Illinois adults who rent or own their home, pay their utility bills, and have at least some input on the household choice of their utility company. Support for energy choice through Alternative Retail Energy Suppliers (ARES) cut across the typical partisan divide with both Republicans and Democrats overwhelmingly agreeing that they want to be able to choose clean energy. To date, CleanChoice Energy has helped Illinois residents reduce air and carbon pollution by over 462,600,00 pounds by switching to 100% renewable energy.

The new polling bolsters the case that Illinois consumers are supportive of electricity supply options provided by Renewable Alternative Retail Energy Suppliers. The ability to choose clean energy is largely available to Illinoisans today because of the retail electricity market. Without the retail electricity market, hundreds of thousands of customers would not be empowered to choose their fuel mix. Other methods to choose clean energy include solar panels (accessible to only a small fraction homeowners) and community solar which is limited by the availability of projects. These latest polling results closely mirror results from other states and show the broad support residents have for energy choice.

CleanChoice Energy provides 100% renewable retail electric supply to Illinois residents and businesses. The company has made social responsibility a core value and has provided over $1.5 million in support to more than 50 nonprofit environmental and social impact organizations. CleanChoice Energy’s giving has powered it to the highest level of B Corp certification, with a company score 50 percent higher than the required score for B Corp certified companies. CleanChoice customers have avoided more than 3 billion pounds of carbon dioxide emissions—the equivalent of not burning more than 1.6 billion pounds of coal.
