Energy Efficiency Incentives

The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity administers the Illinois Energy Now (“IEN”) portfolio of programs to implement cost-effective energy efficiency measures that help meet annual energy savings targets. Implementing such measures will also enhance economic development in the state of Illinois through job creation and business development. The Public Sector Energy Efficiency Program (“PSEE”) will, to the extent funds are available, provide incentives for projects that increase the energy efficiency of local governments, municipal corporations, public school districts, community college districts, public universities, and state/federal facilities located in the service territories of Ameren Illinois, Commonwealth Edison, Nicor Gas, Peoples Gas, and/or North Shore Gas.

The Public Sector Program will offer “Standard”, “Custom” and “Clean Water” incentives.

The Standard program provides incentives for specific electric and natural gas measures. The measures are listed under the following categories:

  • Lighting
  • Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Equipment: Variable Speed Drives, Water Heaters, Showerheads, Air Compressors, Traffic Signals
  • Kitchen

The Custom program provides incentives for other electric and natural gas measures not listed under the Standard program.

The Clean Water program provides incentives for high efficiency blowers, aeration diffusers and controls.
