ComEd Small Business Assistance Program

ComEd has created a new program to help small businesses. As of December 16, 2020, they are accepting applications for assistance that would be applied to a business’ bill in 2021 if all qualifications are met.

The Small Business Assistance Program provides eligible small business customers, with a one-time grant up to $2,000 towards a past due balance. Eligible customers may also place a remaining balance into a payment plan of up to six months.  To apply for the Small Business Assistance Program, please call 1-877-426-6331.
