  1. My neighborhood was overwhelmed by solicitors falsely representing themselves as “Com Ed” and asked if we would like to save 10% on your electricity. The young lady said she was with Spark Energy and flashed a copy of a Com Ed bill in a plasitc sheet. I told her to leave and she moved on.
    Just another case of solicitation in the Heights that needs to be addressed. I attempted to report this incident to Com Ed from their website but could not find a drop down menu for contact us.
