IMEA Electric Efficiency Incentives Program
More information about the IMEA Electric Efficiency Incentives program will be posted soon.
Examples of projects that might qualify include installation of light-emitting diode (LED) exterior and interior lighting systems. Additional applications for other programs, such as refrigeration; Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems; and efficient fans and motors will be available at a later date.
The applicant must be a non-residential customer of Naperville's Electric Utility. Commercial, industrial, institutional, local government or non-government (schools, parks, museums, etc.) are all eligible to apply.
How To Apply
Applicants can submit their energy efficiency project proposals to the IMEA using one of the six IMEA application forms that best fits their proposed project. The lighting program forms will be available on the IMEA website with other program applications being made available at a later date.
Applications will be accepted and evaluated on a first-come, first-evaluated basis until all funds are awarded. Incomplete applications will be rejected.
Grant Award Amount
Projects may receive up to $20,000 and awarded funds must be matched dollar for dollar.
After receiving notice to proceed, but prior to commencing work, the applicant must notify the City's Inspection Dispatch at (630) 420-6100, Opt.1 and schedule a pre-project inspection. Additional inspections may be required depending on the scope of work. After all work is completed, the applicant must notify the City and schedule a post-project inspection. Failure to schedule required inspections will cause the applicant to forfeit their grant money.
Time of Funding
After the energy efficiency project is completed, the applicant will submit a final application for funding along with invoices, receipts and other documentation by email to Rod Whelpley, IMEA, at firstname.lastname@example.org and Bernie Saban, City of Naperville, at email@example.com. The City will verify all work has been completed. The IMEA then reviews the final application materials and issues the project reimbursement to the recipient.
