The Citizen’s Utility Board is applauding the Illinois Commerce Commission for launching an investigation into alternative energy supplier Major Energy. Spokesperson Jim Chilsen says a number of complaints about false advertising by the company prompted the investigation. He says consumers should have the option to choose an alternative supplier, but recommends only doing so after you’ve done plenty of research.

He says you should ask whichever provider you choose a number of questions before making a decision.

Chilsen says that C.U.B., state regulators and suppliers have the same goal, to provide a fair market in which consumers can make educated choices.
