Incentives

What incentives are available to my company?

Small Business: If your energy bill is 0-100KW usage your cash incentives are automatically deducted from your cost by your trade ally-no paperwork!

Standard Business: If your energy bill is 100-400KW usage you qualify for Standard program incentives which are paid back to the customer 4-6 weeks post installation and final paperwork.

New Construction Incentives: provides financial incentives and technical assistance to encourage design teams and building owners to surpass standard practices and exceed energy code requirements.

Commercial Kitchen Equipment: offers incentives for electronically commutated motors, demand ventilation controls, walk-in cooler and freezer controls, and a wide range of ENERGY STAR food service equipment.

HVAC: Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) can account for as much as 30% of a building's annual energy usage. ComEd offers opportunities for commercial customers to cost-effectively improve their HVAC systems and save money on energy bills.

Custom Incentives: Custom incentives are based on the actual kilowatt-hour savings achieved by the project in the first year. Qualifying projects can earn incentives up to $.07 per kWh saved.
