In 2007, legislation amended the Illinois Public Utilities Act and required that the States 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 Public Sector Energy Efficiency Programs combine natural gas incentives with the former Public Sector Electric Efficiency Programs.

PY 4 Highlights ~40 projects, achieved energy savings of 1.8 million therms (more than double the goal of 826,000) 327 boiler tune-ups; 1,164 steam traps; 2.6 miles of pipe insulation PY 5 Changes pilot program becoming permanent offered all year Status Open – Applications available: Contact: Stefano Galiasso, Energy Resources Center, UIC
Partners: U of Illinois, SEDAC Design Assistance Experts and Energy Service Providers Assist public sector/private building owners to identify opportunities to save energy and money Provide energy audits, analysis and design assistance including: Design review and/or site inspection Computer modeling of base case and alternatives with ECMs Energy savings analysis Life cycle cost analysis Final report with recommendations Retro-Commissioning
More than 90 percent of the projects are targeted to local governments, K-12 schools, and community colleges.
Standard lighting and other Custom projects are the most common project types.
Custom other and Custom HVAC are the most common project types.
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.
