Installing variable speed drives (VSDs) or variable frequency drives (VFDs) on existing motors allows their operation to be continually tuned to actual demand, resulting in substantial energy savings. ComEd Energy Efficiency Program incentives are available for VSDs on HVAC chillers, fans, pumps and air compressors.
Use NEMA Premium-efficiency motors on all units one horsepower or greater, which can save up to three percent in motor energy consumption. This is important for motors that operate for extended periods of time.

Effective January 1, 2018, the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program is responsible for verifying that an Energy Efficiency Service Provider or installing contractor is certified by the ICC for the installation of applicable measures prior to any incentive or rebate payout.
Beginning June 1, 2019, ComEd will be responsible for verifying that certified Energy Efficiency Service Providers or installing contractors are recertified with the ICC. Payment will be withheld if the installing contractor is not re-certified by June 1st each year. This does not apply to customers who choose to self-install the applicable measure(s). For more information concerning the ICC certification and re-certification requirements, instructions and rules can be found at: ICC EE Installer Certification.
The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program is funded in compliance with state law.
