The ComEd Energy Force Ambassador Program is a one-of-a-kind program that trains adults with developmental disabilities to serve as ambassadors for ComEd's Energy Efficiency Program. The program is currently celebrating its 11th Anniversary!
ComEd will provide training about the basics of energy efficiency, our smart grid, and sustainable energy sources for all the selected ambassadors in January. Following their training, ambassadors will help the public understand the benefits of energy efficiency and conservation at home. They will teach people simple energy-saving tips by creating fun, interactive demonstrations.
Each ambassador is expected to conduct 10 engagements between January 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022 - at their own organizations, at ComEd-sponsored events, and in the community-at-large. Engagements can be virtual and/or in-person as safety guidelines allow. Ambassadors are asked to record each engagement via an online event submission form.
Additionally, ambassadors are asked to send photos of their interactions for potential use in internal/external promotions and collect email addresses for the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program mailing list.
Participating organizations must be in and serve Illinois residents within ComEd's service territory. If your organization is selected to participate in the Energy Force program, you will receive a $7,500 contribution to cover costs, including an ambassador stipend for their participation (amount is at your discretion) and any staff, travel, or other costs associated with event coordination.
Your organization is required to assign a staff member (job coach) who will attend training and assist the ambassador in scheduling events and keeping track of inventory.
2022 Program Applications have closed. Check back in the Fall for 2023 Applications. Reach out to
