Energy Efficiency Grant Programs
Renewable Energy Grant
Naperville’s Renewable Energy Program enables 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 Non-Residential Renewable Energy Grants is available in 2023. As of May 1st funds are approximately 50% expended and once depleted, no additional funding for projects purchased or installed will be available until the new year.
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 was available for our nonresidential Electric Utility customers as incentives toward completing energy efficiency projects.
Year 2 (2020): $260,882 will 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.
