to Summary by DSIRE
Commonwealth Edison's (ComEd) New Construction Service program element, in coordination with Nicor Gas, provides cash incentives and technical assistance to encourage building owners, designers and architects to surpass standard practices. The New Construction program’s goal is to achieve energy savings through technical assistance early in the design phase of a new building. Technical assistance can take many forms ranging from plan review to whole building energy modeling. Customers must be located in the ComEd service territory to receive electric incentives. Additionally, customers must be located in the ComEd and Nicor Gas service territories to receive both electric and natural gas incentives. Contact ComEd for more information on this program.
