The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program provides a direct pathway for multi-family developers to have a positive impact on the triple bottom line of people, place and planet by:
Owner and developer, Gerding Edlen, demonstrated its commitment to the triple bottom line in the design and development of Xavier — a 240-unit multi-family building in Chicago’s Near North Side neighborhood. The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program partnered with Gerding Edlen and the Xavier design team to support and reinforce the business case for energy efficiency in the project design. In addition to implementing a significant number of beyond-code energy conservation measures (ECMs), the owner and design team created a sustainable building featuring beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows, while keeping the total window area within the energy code maximum.
ComEd Energy Efficiency Program implementer Seventhwave provided whole-building energy modeling to calculate potential energy cost reductions, and potential earned program incentives for both electric and natural gas savings. These savings resulted from implementation of 10 ECMs, including:
The design for the new 261,850 square foot, 240-unit multi-family building reduced annual energy costs by an estimated $70,813 compared to minimal energy code compliance. Gerding Edlen received a total of $70,099 in incentives from the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program. An additional 10 percent incentive bonus was also provided to the project design team for significant engagement with the program.
