ComEd yesterday [March 1, 2022] submitted to the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC), which regulates the state’s utilities, a four-year, $1.7 billion plan to expand programs that help business, residential and public sector customers reduce energy use and save money. The plan incorporates feedback from local stakeholders and updates the energy efficiency plan the ICC approved in 2021 to reflect changes enabled by the state’s new clean energy law, which expands these programs, and allows energy efficiency goals to be partially met by electrification initiatives. . . .
“Our goal is to see continual growth in energy efficiency investments, as these investments save individual customers energy and money but also provide important societal, environmental and health benefits to entire communities,” said Stacey Paradis, Executive Director of the Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance. “We’ve been impressed with ComEd’s leadership having grown their energy efficiency program from its start in 2008 to their plans today to make what is the single largest energy efficiency investment in the Midwest. We are excited to see their focus on affordability and bringing energy efficiency programs and benefits to the people that most need it. We commend them on their industry-leading work and look forward to the continued growth of the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program.”
