The statement says, the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) has determined that certain customers who were subject to an electric service outage that lasted four hours or more may be eligible to file a claim to be reimbursed for any actual damages that resulted.

It goes on to say, the filing of a claim does not mean it will meet the criteria required for reimbursement. The timing for payments has not yet been established and in some cases, the ICC may grant ComEd a waiver of liability.


Customers who had power outages caused by the storm should keep all documentation such as receipts, pictures, repair invoices and any proof of actual damages, the statement said.
