Illinois Energy Now
Public Sector Energy Efficiency
What is Illinois Energy Now?
In 2007, legislation amended the Illinois Public Utilities Act and required
that the State’s largest utility providers and the Department of Commerce
& Economic Opportunity (DCEO) develop a portfolio of electric energy
efficiency programs to meet legislative goals that reduce energy demand.
In 2009, legislation was passed to include natural gas energy efficiency
programs to meet legislative reduction goals.
Illinois Energy Now is the portfolio of programs the Department of
Commerce & Economic Opportunity offers to administer the electric and
natural gas incentives for the public sector.
2012-2013 Public Sector Energy Efficiency Programs combine natural
gas incentives with the former Public Sector Electric Efficiency Programs.

Where the public sector facility is located in Ameren Illinois or ComEd
electric service areas, facility is eligible for electric efficiency incentives
for those measures that produce electric savings. Measures include;
lighting, electric HVAC equipment, motors, electric kitchen equipment.
Where the public sector facility is located in Ameren Illinois, Nicor Gas,
Peoples Gas or North Shore Gas natural gas service areas, facility is
eligible for natural gas efficiency incentives for those measures that
produce natural gas savings. Measures include; natural gas HVAC
equipment, natural gas water heaters, natural gas kitchen equipment.
Where the public sector facility is located in both a participating electric
service area and natural gas service area, facility is eligible for both
electric and natural gas efficiency incentives.
