The VCx energy efficiency offering is a complimentary service for non-residential customers that is offered by Power TakeOff in partnership with ComEd. A trained Energy Advisor analyzes your facility’s energy data with no on-site visits necessary. Participating is fast and easy with no eligible equipment criteria, fees, or enrollment paperwork. Between 2020 and 2021, average energy reduction for participant facilities was 16.7%. 

How the VCx energy efficiency program works

  • Utility Meter Data Analysis: A remote analysis provides initial insight to understand energy usage at your facility to identify unexpected and wasted usage.
  • Virtually Delivered: No on-site visits or in-person audits required. Communication with an Energy Advisor is provided virtually and remotely, by email or phone.
  • Personalized Recommendations: Based on your unique building and operations, your Energy Advisor will provide low to no-cost recommendations that are easy to implement.
  • Measured Results: Immediately see the impact of implemented adjustments in your energy usage data shared by your dedicated Energy Advisor.

What to Expect

If the remote analysis of your meter data confirms that you may benefit from the VCx program, an Energy Advisor will contact you to further discuss and offer assistance, providing recommendations based on your facility's unique energy usage and your business’ priorities.


“Thanks to the help from the energy advisors, Homer Community Consolidated School District has seen dramatic improvements in our energy consumption. Over our seven buildings, initial results have seen large cost savings that will save our district significantly.  Thank you for all your program has done for us, we could not be happier! By the way, our April electric bills were down about 15% across the board with one building down 19% vs same time last year. Thank you again for the help.”
