If you're interested in having more control of your energy bills, you do have options. One option is to choose your own natural gas supplier. Choices for YouSM program participation is open to all residential customers of Peoples Gas under rates 1, 2, 6 and 8 .

Peoples Gas wants to make sure you have the information you need to find a supplier that's right for you. Choices for You helps you answer questions on whether you should consider making a switch.

Gas suppliers who want to become eligible to offer gas supply service in the Choices for You program must send a "Letter of Intent" including the following information:

  • Identify Peoples Gas as the service territory in which they intend to be an alternate gas supplier.
  • Provide the specific customer class which they intend to serve: residential or business.

The Letter of Intent can be mailed to:

Peoples Gas
Choices for You Program
c/o GTS Department
200 East Randolph St, 20th Floor
Chicago, IL 60601

Gas suppliers must be certified by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) to become an alternative gas supplier for residential (Rate 1) customers.

Any customer who enrolls with an alternative supplier must:

  • Have a contract with a Choices for You supplier for gas supply,
  • Become a member of the supplier pool; and
  • Provide Peoples Gas regular access to their meter.
