The Multi-Family Properties Energy Efficiency Rebate Program aims to increase the energy efficiency of multi-family properties by implementing simple measures. There are two programs within this initiative. The Common Area Program provides rebate incentives to building owners for purchasing and installing efficient lighting, controls, signage, insulation, air/duct sealing, and HVAC measures. Interested applicants must complete the Request for Reservation of Incentive Funds (Request) and the Terms and Conditions forms, then fax or mail them to the Program office. See application on program web site for equipment standards and requirements.

The In-Unit Energy Efficiency Program provides energy efficient measures such as CFL bulbs, faucet aerators, water pipe insulation, and efficient shower heads for free to eligible customers. Property owners or managers must apply for the free measures. Eligible buildings have three or more apartments per building. Measures should be installed within 15 days of receiving free equipment. See program web site and contact Ameren Illinois Utilities for program guidelines.
