DCEO Illinois Energy Now - Public Sector Energy Efficiency Program
     

Energy Efficiency Funding and Technical Assistance Available for Public Buildings

Illinois Energy Now (IEN) is a suite of energy efficiency programs administered by the State of Illinois that provides millions of dollars in rebates to public facilities that make large scale equipment improvements to their electric and natural gas systems.

This funding supports several IEN programs including the Smart Energy Design Assistance Center (SEDAC), Energy Resource Center (ERC), and Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA). To learn more about these programs and energy efficiency incentives at ilenergynow.org.

Additionally, this funding supports the Public Sector Energy Efficiency Program that is administered by the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus through DCEO’s Public Sector Energy Efficiency Aggregation Program. The Metropolitan Mayors Caucus has partnered with 360 Energy Group to administer this funding for IEN to help local governments update and retrofit public facilities that will improve energy efficiency and save money.

Public sector grant reimbursements can be up to $300,000 per facility location for projects including but not limited to HVAC system tune-ups, indoor and outdoor lighting upgrades, and heat distribution upgrades. Select HVAC system maintenance and upgrade projects may also be completed at no direct cost to the public agency.Energy Group Process
