As part of its ongoing efforts to support businesses and the communities it serves, ComEd will co-sponsor this year's virtual "Jazz Up In Your Backyard" event.

To help customers who may be struggling to pay their energy bills due to the current economic climate, ComEd is making bill-assistance and energy-efficiency information available to customers on the event Web page.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

This information includes but is not limited bill-payment options, financial-assistance information and no- and low-cost energy-saving tips to help customers save money and energy.

This year's event will feature performances streamed live so all may virtually attend.

To encourage residents to shop locally, for every purchase made at a participating, local business in downtown Glen Ellyn between Monday, July 5, and Sunday, July 11, customers will be entered into a drawing for a prize from ComEd.
