  • Serving Chamber Members as the Trusted Energy Advisor since 2007

    As part of an ongoing effort to provide value to our members, the Peoria Area Chamber, partnered with energy experts CQI Associates, are happy to announce the Spring 2014 enrollment campaign for the Commercial Energy Co-op.

    Deregulation laws in Illinois give you the choice in who supplies your businesses’ electricity or natural gas. This program has been successful in providing cost reduction to its members since it inception in Illinois in 2007.

    Here are just a few more benefits:

    • Increased Purchasing Power in procuring electric and natural gas at the most competitive rates to businesses,
    • 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 CQI Associates. 

    This is an excellent time for Members to join the Chamber of Commerce Energy Purchasing Co-op program to seek electricity and natural gas supply services for your commercial accounts. Electricity and natural gas rates will continue to rise over the next 24 months. Secure budget stability by locking in your supply services into a contract now. In addition to traditional supply procurement, services such as Demand Respond Load, Curtailment, and Utility Rebate Programs are also available through CQI.
