Residential Energy Efficiency Incentives

The City of Naperville Electric Utility is offering incentives for homeowners who install energy-efficient attic insulation and replace single-pane windows.

  • To qualify for the incentive, applicants must be residential Naperville Electric Utility customers who own or rent their residence.
  • 100% complete applications/documentation must be received within 120 days of installation. 
  • The incentives are limited to 50% of the project, including material and installation, with a $2,500 maximum rebate for each energy-efficient improvement.
  • Customers could qualify for a maximum rebate of $5,000, if they installed both attic insulation and energy-efficient windows.
  • Incentives will end when all funding is allocated. Projects PURCHASED OR INSTALLED in the calendar year when all funding is expended will NOT be eligible for future incentives.  
  • Applicants must provide a copy of their current utility bill showing they are a contributor to the Renewable Energy Program at the $5-per-month level or above for a minimum of five years after award date. Renewable Energy Program contributions are the source of funding for these rebates. For more information and to sign up for the program, visit www.naperville.il.us/renewable.

Attic Insulation

The final level of insulation, (pre-existing and new) must have a minimum R-Value of R-49. A final insulation depth of at least 15” will be considered sufficient to reach the required R-49 value for the rebate. It is strongly recommended that homeowners request their insulation contractor to include an Air Seal step as part of the attic insulation project. 

Here are some tips for applying for the rebate.

Window Replacement

Windows must have a U-factor of 0.30 or lower.

  • The grant amount is $250 per window, with a $2,500 maximum award.
  • The window must separate a heated space from an unheated space and must replace a single-pane window with a double or triple-pane window.
  • Homeowners must submit close-up photos of each existing single-pane window replaced to document all windows are single-pane. 

According to the Department of Energy, heat gain and heat loss through windows are responsible for 25% to 30% of residential heating and cooling energy use. For windows, the rate of heat loss is indicated in terms of the U-factor. The lower the U-factor, the greater a window’s resistance to heat flow and the better its insulating value.

Here are some tips for applying for the window replacement rebate.
