today that it is asking the Illinois Commerce Commission to grant it a
7 percent rate hike, a decision the Citizens Utility Board quickly
criticized. From a statement:
ComEd’s rate-hike plan couldn’t have come at a worse time, as working
families continue to tighten their belts to pay the bills in this

CUB’s legal team will review ComEd’s rate-hike filing and we’ll
challenge every penny the company can’t justify.
