Early Completion Bonus
We’re excited to announce the EARLY COMPLETION BONUS for Business Program energy efficiency projects finished in Program Year 2024. With this bonus, your facility can receive up to 15% more incentive dollars to use toward your energy efficiency projects through Sept. 30, 2024 (see payout chart for details)* — This not only reduces your out-of-pocket costs, but also helps to shorten your project payback period even further!
How to Apply: When you complete energy efficiency projects and submit applications to the Ameren Illinois Energy Efficiency Program, the bonus will be calculated automatically without the need for any additional paperwork.
But wait, there’s more! If you’re an Ameren Illinois Business customer who purchases and installs Illinois-manufactured products in your facility while completing an energy efficiency project, instead of receiving the Early Completion Bonus, you’ll receive the MADE IN ILLINOIS BONUS! If your project qualifies, your facility could receive up to 20% more incentive dollars through Sept. 30, 2024 (see payout chart for details)*, which is a 5% enhancement of Early Completion Bonus to help support Illinois product manufacturing!
Eligibility: Equipment must be at least 50% manufactured and/or assembled in Illinois (exclusive of packaging and installation); product installation is not considered “assembly.” The project must be completed between Jan. 1, 2024 and Sept. 30, 2024.
How to Apply: A section has been added to all energy efficiency project applications for the Made in Illinois Bonus and includes the following:
