Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) offers residential customers and building owners (or managers) incentives for certain energy efficiency upgrades and improvements. Increased incentives are available to residential homeowners, building owners and property managers for certain efficiency upgrades where electricity is used for both water heating and space heating. The lighting incentive is administered as an off-the-shelf discount program where purchasers receive a discount on compact fluorescent light bulbs from participating retailers (see web site for listing). Technicians will perform a free of charge energy assessment of common areas in addition to the upgrades above. Condo owners and renters are encouraged to have their property manager or building owner contact ComEd about this program.
