Opinions of ComEd and Ameren Customers Ages 50+ in Illinois on House Bill 14: An AARP Survey

En español | The Illinois state office of AARP commissioned this survey to explore the views of electric and gas customers ages 50 and older from two companies that are specific to House Bill 14 – Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) and Ameren. Concern about and experience with electric and gas rates and support for specific features of the bill are tested in this survey. According to ComEd’s website, the company currently services about 70 percent of the state’s population or 3.8 million customers in Illinois. Ameren currently serves about 2.4 million electric customers and about 900,000 natural gas customers.  If passed, HB 14 could result in less state oversight, fewer consumer protections, and more frequent automatic rate increases for ComEd and Ameren customers and perhaps ultimately for customers of other natural gas companies in the state. There are approximately 3,977,245 persons age 50+ in Illinois and many of them, particularly those with lower incomes, could be affected by this bill if passed.
