Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) offers its non-residential Illinois customers a wide range of incentives for the installation of energy efficiency improvements. To participate, customers must be a delivery service customer of ComEd with a valid account number on an eligible ComEd non-residential rate. Electricity can be supplied by a retail electric supplier (RES) as long as the electricity is delivered by ComEd. The account must be in the customer’s name. Customers of municipal utilities in such towns as Naperville, St. Charles, Batavia, Geneva, Winnetka and Rochelle are not eligible for the program because they do not pay into the fund.

Standard incentive amounts vary according to equipment type, size, and relative level of energy efficiency. Custom incentives are based on the amount of energy that a given improvement saves per year. Custom measures must comply with minimum and maximum payback period requirements. Standard incentives 50% of the project cost.
