New Construction

Energy is one of the biggest expenses for commercial buildings. By incorporating energy efficiency into your design and build, you can lower these future costs and maximize the comfort, quality and safety of the building.

Financial incentives are available for ground-up construction, change of use of an existing building or land, or building additions (two or more building systems are renovated – e.g. heating & lighting).

Requirements for New Construction incentives:

  • Pre-approval for all new construction projects is required.
  • Installed equipment should exceed baseline code requirements for energy efficiency.
  • Contractors must be Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) certified.
  • Lighting equipment must be Design Lights Consortium (DLC) listing approved.
