Build Energy Efficiency from the Ground Up

New Construction

Providing Assistance

The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program offers solutions to deliver long-term energy and cost savings for your new construction project or major renovation. We provide technical assistance and financial incentives to help developers and design teams exceed standard energy code requirements.

The best time to identify high-performance building design strategies and technologies is at the beginning of the design process. To receive maximum incentives, applications must be submitted early in the design process—ideally during the concept development or schematic design stage.

Commercial, Industrial and Public Sector New Construction

Receive incentives for new construction or major renovation of an existing space designed to exceed energy code requirements. We provide recommendations, analysis, assistance and financial incentives for energy-saving improvements to all major building systems — envelope, HVAC equipment, lighting, commercial refrigeration and more.

Affordable Housing New Construction

Developers of income eligible single-family and multi-family new construction and major renovation projects are eligible for incentives and technical assistance through our affordable housing new construction offering. This offering is a continuation of the affordable housing new construction program previously administered by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) to improve comfort and reduce energy use.

Residential New Construction

Builders who construct homes are eligible to receive incentives for energy efficiency measures through the residential new construction offering, jointly offered with Nicor Gas. Homes certified through this offering are more comfortable, more durable, and safer to live in.
