We know some of you are without power and we appreciate your patience as crews work to restore outages. Based on the history of similar storms of this size, across the ComEd service area, we expect most of the current outages to be restored by later this evening. We are aware that more storms may be reaching ComEd territory this afternoon and tonight which may impact our restoration process and or create additional outages. The best way to stay updated on your outage is to sign up for outage alerts at ComEd.com/Alerts
Go beyond common retrofits and earn incentives through the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program for facility and process improvements that save energy.
Custom incentives are based on actual energy savings, and options include everything from custom lighting to installing a cogeneration plant. Whether you’re installing new light fixtures, adding variable speed drives (VSDs) to equipment motors or making process system enhancements, ComEd can help make your project more cost effective.
Take advantage of incentives that range from 7 to 12 cents per kWh saved depending on your project. Certain upgrades to water and wastewater treatment facilities can earn up to 21 cents per kWh saved. Measurement and verification may be required, but is typically waived for projects with incentives of $25,000 or less. ComEd offers FREE tools to help you estimate your project's potential energy savings and incentive. It’s easier than ever to turn your energy-saving ideas into reality!
Need ideas to get started? Below are completed projects from actual ComEd customers.
A customer achieved energy savings by replacing 17 stand-alone process chiller units with a more efficient 150-ton central chiller system. In addition to the incentives they received from ComEd, they saved more than 180,000 kWh with a payback of less than one year!
This customer installed regenerative drives to power their nine-story building’s six elevator banks efficiently. Instead of wasting the energy generated by an elevator’s counterbalance and dispersing it into heat within the machine room, regenerative drives store and use that energy later. That translates to lower cooling, operating and maintenance costs.
A manufacturing customer installed variable speed drives to their screw machines. The machines use less energy, and give operators better control of their specialized manufacturing equipment.
A major grocery store chain installed 300 new high-efficiency refrigerated cases throughout nine of its stores. The cases included electronically commutated motors, LED lighting and other features to help them save energy while keeping food fresh.
A 29,000-square-foot manufacturing facility went beyond the minimum code requirements and installed high-efficiency LED high-bay light fixtures with motion sensors. The new fixtures gave them the ability to control energy use, and the new lighting brightened up the facility.
To provide more energy-efficient cooling to their process line, a manufacturer replaced their existing cooling tower with a new economizer and circulation fans/pumps. The project significantly reduced energy and water consumption, achieving a payback time of less than two years.
