The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program offers comprehensive energy solutions for residential new construction and major renovation projects. The Program helps you push your design further by offering both technical assistance and financial incentives for energy conservation measures. It also offers a holistic approach to your project by providing incentives for energy savings.
Make the jump to high-quality, next-generation, all-electric homes. Reduce energy bills while providing superior comfort and health benefits. Prepare for a clean, resilient energy home, with no gas connection and no gas combustion.
Builders of new construction and major renovation single-family homes, duplexes, townhomes, 2-4 flats, small multi-family (greater than 4 units; up to 3 stories outside of Chicago, up to 4 stories in Chicago) and accessory dwelling units are eligible to receive financial incentives for achieving best practice energy efficiency. Meet the Program's energy efficiency requirements including envelope, all-electric heat pump HVAC, heat pump water heating, LED lighting and ENERGY STAR® appliances. Learn about additional clean energy strategies like solar power, electric vehicle charging, smart homes, triple pane windows and induction cooktops. Check out our Electric Homes New Construction fact sheet for more information!
Small multi-family buildings can go all-electric too. If your multi-family project is greater than 4 units but still following the residential building code, it is eligible for the Program. These projects will have additional requirements for common area spaces. Learn more!
Affordable housing developers can receive technical guidance and financial incentives to enhance energy efficiency in new construction or renovation projects that serve income eligible residents. Leverage no-cost energy efficiency expertise and receive incentives for your project by applying early in the design process. Earn additional incentives to deploy innovative technologies in your next project. Design and build around a prescriptive Multi-Family Standard to deliver significant energy savings to residents and maximize your property’s performance.
To be eligible, a project must:
Multi-Family Standard includes an integrated bundle of energy cost reduction measures designed to deliver significant energy savings over the current Illinois Energy Conservation Code baseline.
The standard includes 10 energy efficiency measures, addressing:
