Building on the assets that have made Chicagoland and northern Illinois a top market for data centers, ComEd has launched a significant new energy efficiency program that will spur regional business development in the digital economy sector.
Through this new incentive offering, part of the Smart Ideas for Your Business® program, ComEd will work with data center designers, owners, and tenants to strengthen operations and maximize energy efficiency. By providing per kWh financial incentives and technical assistance, ComEd will help these businesses lower energy use and save money on electricity bills. Whether businesses are building new facilities, renovating or expanding, ComEd will work with them to achieve a permanent reduction in electrical usage.
For example, if you currently have a 4-lamp T12 fixture and converted to 2 T5 Retrofit Kits, the rebate would be $34 ($12 for each lamp removal and $5 each for each kit installation). This could reduce the material cost by 60% bringing the ROI to just a few months.
Smart Ideas for Your Business® offers cash incentives for energy-efficient indoor and outdoor lighting. There are incentives for LED, hardwire compact fluorescent, metal halide and induction fixtures, as well as for lighting controls. Incentives for T12-to-T8 upgrades and other fluorescent retrofits also are available.
