Illuminating Company

The Illuminating Company utility company serves over 409,000 residential customers in the Cleveland area.  The deregulation of electricity in Ohio has changed the Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company from a full service electricity company (generation, transmission, and distribution) to just a transmission and distribution company.

The Illuminating Company is now only in the business of delivering electricity to their customers at delivery charges (distribution rates) that are regulated by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

The Illuminating Company does not profit from the supply charges (generation) of the electricity bill.  However, they are mandated to offer default service, the price to compare, to customers who do not choose a competitive Ohio electricity supplier.  Currently there are electricity supply companies offering low electric rates to Cleveland electricity customers that can help reduce their monthly electric bills and protect them from potential future increases in the Illuminating Company price to compare.
