Energy Efficiency Grant Programs

Renewable Energy Grant

Naperville’s Renewable Energy Program enables Naperville's residential and business electric customers to make voluntarily monthly donations through their electric bills to support the City’s investment in renewable energy. Through effective in-house management of the program, the City has been able to save money and is investing it back into the community through Renewable Energy Grants.

Funding for the 2019 Non-Residential Renewable Energy Grants is now available. Applications are due July 31, 2019. The City anticipates two additional funding window opportunities in the summer and fall of 2019, based on funding availability.

IMEA Electric Efficiency Grants

The Illinois Municipal Electric Agency (IMEA) has awarded the City of Naperville a three-year grant to be used for energy improvements.

Year 1 (2019): $253,882 will be available for our nonresidential Electric Utility customers as incentives toward completing energy efficiency projects.

Year 2 (2020): $260,882 may be available for nonresidential customer grants for energy improvements.

Year 3 (2021): $260,882 may be available for nonresidential customer grants for energy improvements.

The IMEA Electric Efficiency Program helps IMEA member cities like Naperville and their customers reduce their electric demand and consumption, thereby reducing wholesale power costs. This allows members to shift dollars for other needs and to enhance their economic climate by making utility costs more affordable for established and potential businesses.
