Illinois Energy Now Public Sector Energy Efficiency What is Illinois Energy Now? In 2007, legislation amended the Illinois Public Utilities Act and required that the State’s largest utility providers and the Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) develop a portfolio of electric energy efficiency programs to meet legislative goals that reduce energy demand. In 2009, legislation was passed to include natural gas energy efficiency programs to meet legislative reduction goals. Illinois Energy Now is the portfolio of programs the Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity offers to administer the electric and natural gas incentives for the public sector. 2011-2012Public Sector Energy Efficiency Programs combinenatural gas incentives with the former Public Sector Electric Efficiency Programs.

ILLINOIS ENERGY NOW Public Sector Programs Standard: specific incentives linked to easily quantifiable, individual efficiency measures such as lighting, motors, chillers, etc. Custom: an incentive $/kWh or $/therms saved for measures that are not standard New Construction: new construction funding for buildings built beyond code Retro-Commissioning: identify and implement low cost tune-ups and adjustments to existing building operating systems
2011-2012 Program Year PSEE Standard and Custom Estimated Funding Available Year 4 funds are available for projects completed 6/1/11 – 5/15/12.
Program Year 3 (PY3) SummaryPublic Sector Electric Efficiency Programs
Public Sector Electric Efficiency ProgramPY3 Summary • DCEO received 688 public sector applications through the 4th quarter of PY3, twice the number of PY2 • 125 projects were postponed until PY4 or cancelled • 356 funded applicants were ComEd customers and 207 Ameren Illinois customers • 75% of the applications were for standard incentives, 14% for custom incentives, and 11% for a combination of incentives
Percent Savings by Public Category • More than three-fourths of the funds are targeted to local governments, K-12 schools, and community colleges.
Percent Savings by Project Type • Standard and Custom lighting projects are the most common project types.
Program Year 4 (PY4) Updates 2011-2012Public Sector Energy Efficiency Programs
Program Year 4 (PY4) Updates • Natural Gas incentives added • Table for funding availability posted • New Standard Incentive Program categories: • Lighting • HVAC & Water Heaters • Motors • Kitchen • New Application Forms
Program Eligibility Determined by Electric and/or Natural Gas Service Area • Where the public sector facility is located in Ameren Illinois or ComEd electric service areas, facility is eligible for electric efficiency incentives for those measures that produce electric savings. Measures include; lighting, electric HVAC equipment, motors, electric kitchen equipment.Where the public sector facility is located in Ameren Illinois, Nicor Gas, Peoples Gas or North Shore Gas natural gas service areas, facility is eligible for natural gas efficiency incentives for those measures that produce natural gas savings. Measures include; natural gas HVAC equipment, natural gas water heaters, natural gas kitchen equipment.Where the public sector facility is located in both a participating electric service area and natural gas service area, facility is eligible for both electric and natural gas efficiency incentives.
Eligibility and Funding Availability www.illinoisenergy.org
PY4 Updates Standard and Custom Incentive Program • PY3 Public Sector Electric Efficiency Program becomes 2011-2012 Public Sector Energy Efficiency Program • One set of Guidelines and Forms for all public sectors • New Standard Incentive Program categories • Many Standard incentives increased over PY3 • Continue to offer increased incentives for T12 upgrades
Standard Incentive Program: LightingFixture Retrofit: Existing Fixture New T-8 Lamps & Ballasts Incentive for retrofitting existing T12 lamps and magnetic ballasts with high performance T8 lamps and electronic ballasts. This measure is based on the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) high performance T8 specification (www.cee1.org). A list of qualified lamps and ballasts can be found at: http://www.cee1.org/com/com-lt/com-lt-main.php3. Indicate from the list which lamps and ballasts will be installed. You may attach the list and circle the items that will be used. Both the lamp and ballast must meet the specification in order to qualify for an incentive. Incentives for this measure are calculated per lamp installed.
Standard Incentive Program: Lighting Delamp/Permanent Lamp Removal during Existing Fixture Retrofit De-lamp is the net reduction in the number of lamps in a fixture. Applicants are responsible for determining whether or not to use reflectors in combination with lamp removal in order to maintain adequate lighting levels. Lighting levels are expected to meet the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) recommended light levels. Unused lamps, lamp holders, and ballasts must be permanently removed from the fixture and disposed of in accordance with local regulations. This measure is applicable when retrofitting from T12 lamps to T8 lamps or reconfiguring a T8 fixture to reduce the number of lamps. Removing lamps from a T12 fixture that is not being retrofitted with T8 lamps are not eligible for this incentive.
Standard Incentive Program: Lighting New Fluorescent Fixture with High Performance T8 or T5 Lamps Submit manufacturer specification sheet that shows new fixtures meet the new fixture specifications:. The T8 or T5 lamps must have a color rendering index (CRI) ≥ 80. The electronic ballast must be high frequency (≥20 kHz), UL listed, and warranted against defects for 5 years. Ballast power factor (PF) ≥ 0.90. Ballasts for 4-foot lamps total harmonic distortion (THD) ≤20%. Ballasts for 2- and 3-foot lamps total harmonic distortion THD ≤32%. High output T5/T8 lamps also qualify for this rebate. Projects with new T8 or T5 fixtures that operate ≥ 6,000 hours per year (such as 24-hour facilities) may apply under the Custom Incentive Program.
