  • The Benefits

    Deregulation laws in Illinois give you the choice in who supplies your businesses' electricity and natural gas. This program has been successful in providing cost reduction to its members since its inception in Maryland in 2002. Benefits include...

    • Increased purchasing power in procuring electric and natural gas at the most competitive rates to business.
    • Eliminates the need to 'go through it alone.'
    • Budget stability (no more 'roller coaster costs') by offering fixed rate energy supply costs.
    • Year round customer support through energy experts at CQI Associates.

    Now is an excellent time for members to join the Chamber of Commerce Energy Purchasing Co-Op program if you are seeking electricity and natural gas supply services for you commercial accounts. Rates will continue to rise for the next 24 months, and CQI will help secure budget stability by locking in your supply services into a contract. In addition to traditional supply procurement, services such as Demand Respond Load, Curtailment, and Utility Rebate Programs are also available through CQI.
