Custom Solutions

Go beyond common retrofits and upgrades to save energy throughout your facility. From efficient air compressors to elevator regenerative drives, the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program has incentives for your facility’s next energy-saving improvement.

Are you starting a custom project, but unsure if it qualifies for an incentive? Email us at BusinessEE@ComEd.com to request a Custom Intake form. You’ll receive technical feedback, helping to reduce application processing time.

Typical projects include:

Process Cooling

Process Cooling

Save energy and reduce operating costs by upgrading process chillers and cooling towers. Consider also adding control strategies, such as adjusting water temperature setpoints. On average, customers have saved approximately $76,800 in annual energy costs.

HVAC

HVAC

Save energy by adding variable speed drives (VSDs) that replace existing variable blade pitch fan systems, installing cooling towers and adding economizer or energy management controls. A ductless variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system is one of the most efficient HVAC systems on the market. Typical annual energy savings can average 10%.

Process Equipment Improvements

Process Equipment Improvements

If you have process equipment such as mixing motors or drying systems that are energy-intensive, you can save energy by making improvements such as changing operating schedules and recovering waste heat. On average, customers have saved approximately $8,800 in annual energy costs.

Air Compressors

Air Compressors

Air compressor system upgrades can improve the design and efficiency to optimize energy savings by meeting the load with as few machines as possible and delivering air at the lowest practical pressure. On average, customers have saved approximately $25,200 in annual energy costs.

Custom Lighting

Custom Lighting

Lighting projects are custom when installing fixtures in a new construction building or when there is a major renovation of an existing space to use it for a different facility type. Save money and energy by installing fixtures with lower wattage than required by building codes while still achieving desired illumination levels. Typical annual energy savings can average 19%.

IT Room

IT Room

Upgrade to efficient computer room air handling units (CRAH) and lower your monthly energy bill while keeping your IT equipment running cool. Other ways to save energy include airflow management, uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and control systems. On average, customers have saved approximately $55,200 in annual energy costs.

Commercial Refrigeration

Commercial Refrigeration

Save energy by optimizing compressor, condenser and evaporator equipment. Reduce space infiltration by sealing and adding insulation. Typical annual energy savings can average 11%.

Motors

Motors

Gain better control of your specialized manufacturing equipment and save energy by installing VSDs on motors over 200 horsepower. (VSDs on motors under 200 horsepower are eligible to receive incentives through the standard offering). On average, customers have saved approximately $6,900 in annual energy costs.

Elevator Regenerator Drives

Elevator Regenerator Drives

Rather than 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 to move the elevator car as needed. On average, customers have saved approximately $16,800 in annual energy costs.

Combined Heat and Power

Combined Heat and Power

Combined heat and power (CHP) generates electricity for use in your facility and captures the waste heat for use that would otherwise be discharged into the atmosphere. Typical annual energy savings can average 44%.

Building Envelope

Building Envelope

Improve your building envelope by adding wall and roof insulation or upgrading windows. Other options to improve windows include adding window films and replacing air seals. On average, customers have saved approximately $4,600 in annual energy costs.
