Laboratories are energy intensive, using five to ten times more energy per square foot than an average office building, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ComEd can help with incentives to install energy-efficient technologies, such as high performance fume hoods and occupancy controls, low pressure air filters, LED lighting products, control systems and a range of ENERGY STAR® laboratory equipment.
US EPA's Laboratories for the 21st Century program estimates that most labs can reduce energy use by 30 to 50 percent.

Effective January 1, 2018, the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program is responsible for verifying that an Energy Efficiency Service Provider or installing contractor is certified by the ICC for the installation of applicable measures prior to any incentive or rebate payout.
Beginning June 1, 2019, ComEd will be responsible for verifying that certified Energy Efficiency Service Providers or installing contractors are recertified with the ICC. Payment will be withheld if the installing contractor is not re-certified by June 1st each year. This does not apply to customers who choose to self-install the applicable measure(s). For more information concerning the ICC certification and re-certification requirements, instructions and rules can be found at: ICC EE Installer Certification.
The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program is funded in compliance with state law.
