The Watt Spot is the online home of ComEd’s Residential Real-Time Pricing Program. The Watt Spot program requires customers to install a smart meter – called an Interval Data Recording meter – as well as to commit to 12 months in the real-time pricing program. The new meter adds a charge of $2.25 to your monthly meter billing fees. Customers can be notified of electricity prices via e-mail, text message, or voice mail.

Signing up is easy. It requires that you have your ComEd account number and your meter number, both of which can be found on your monthly bill, in addition to standard customer information such as address and phone number.
