(Springfield, IL) — Electricity rates in Illinois are expected to go up after state lawmakers passed a bill to bail out two nuclear power plants. The “Chicago Tribune” says ComEd customers will pay on average an extra $4.50 a month to keep the power plants open. Governor Rauner is expected to sign the bailout bill passed Thursday. The bill would allow Exelon to collect about $235-million dollars a year from customers to keep its power plants open in Clinton and the Quad Cities.
