Current Campaign

As part of an ongoing effort to provide value to our members, the McLean County Chamber of Commerce has partnered with energy experts CQI Associates to offer you the services of the Commercial Energy Co-op. We are happy to announce the Spring 2017 enrollment campaign is underway. 


Several factors are cause for concern about the market rates into 2017:


Recent increases in market rates have been above expectations and will continue to increase over the next six months. Weather will have an impact on prices in the short term. The current forecast is for another hotter than normal summer. Last summer was the hottest on record with an average 2 degrees increase over the prior year.


Natural gas prices since this time last year have increased over 15%. Production is expected to be off due to decreased drilling activity. Demand on supplies are increasing due to the increased export of natural gas overseas will impact supply and pricing into 2017.


Procuring utility rates from third party suppliers remains a viable means to reduce utility expenses. Additional savings can now be seen through restructuring of usage through Demand Response programs, automated systems, and renewable energy options.


There is NO FEE to join the Co-op and one application covers ALL of your electricity and natural gas accounts for ALL locations.
