SEDAC offers design assistance during the pre-construction phase of a new construction project. These services are offered for any project in Illinois over 15,000 square feet, either public or private. Projects can be either new construction or additions or remodels of existing buildings.
The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) is offering financial incentives through the Illinois Energy Now program to facilitate implementation of cost-effective energy efficiency improvements for new construction or major renovation projects undertaken by public sector customers in ComEd, Ameren Illinois, Nicor Gas, Peoples Gas, and North Shore Gas service territories.
This program provides grants to public sector entities to encourage applicants to design new or rehabbed buildings that achieve the greatest level of energy efficiency. SEDAC (on behalf of DCEO) reviews new construction projects for incentive eligibility and program compliance.
Energy efficiency incentives for the private sector are available to customers of ComEd (electric) through the Smart Ideas program, Ameren Illinois (gas and electric) through the ActOnEnergy program, Nicor Gas, North Shore Gas, or Peoples Gas.
If your project design has already been completed, refer to the New Construction Incentive Program information. Please give us a call with questions at 1-800-214-7954
