ComEd Awarded for Two Programs That Make Energy Efficiency Benefits More Accessible to Families and Businesses
Multi-Family Energy Savings and Energy
Efficiency Service Provider Incubator programs recognized by
Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance
The Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) has recognized
ComEd with a pair of Inspiring Efficiency Awards. The recognition
is for the electric company’s efforts to help property owners and
tenants save money on electric bills, as well as an education and
training that helps diverse contractors build successful businesses
in the energy efficiency field.
MEEA named ComEd an Innovation Award recipient for its
Multi-Family Energy Savings offering, which ensures residents in
multi-family buildings have access to offerings that lower their
energy use and electric bills, while presenting similar options for
building owners to help common areas become more energy efficient.
MEEA also recognized ComEd with an Education Award for its Energy
Efficiency Service Provider Incubator program, which has helped
increase the number of local and diverse-owned businesses who can
provide energy-efficiency services to ComEd customers . Both
programs are associated with the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program,
one of the largest energy-efficiency programs in the country.
“ComEd is committed to ensuring all of our customers have access
to energy-efficiency measures that can save them money and energy.
And we’re equally supportive of local businesses that are
interested in providing those measures,” said Erica Borggren,
ComEd’s vice president of customer solutions. “It’s this level of
equity and accessibility to the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program
that has enabled northern Illinois families and businesses to save
more than $7.6 billion on their energy bills since 2008.”
Both acknowledgements are part of MEEA’s 19th annual Inspiring
Efficiency Awards, which recognize individuals and businesses that
have shown exemplary leadership in advancing energy efficiency
across the Midwest. Winners will be recognized during MEEA’s
Midwest Energy Solutions Conference, Jan. 31 through Feb. 2,
“This year’s Inspiring Efficiency Award winners have proven to
be champions of energy efficiency within their communities,” said
MEEA Executive Director Stacey Paradis. “The Midwest Energy
Efficiency Alliance is proud to recognize ComEd for educating and
empowering diverse partners to engage underserved communities and
grow the clean energy workforce.”

Education Award: About the Energy Efficiency Service Provider
(EESP) Incubator program
ComEd’s EESP Incubator program increases the number of local and
diverse-owned companies providing energy efficiency services to
strengthen their businesses and better serve low-participation
communities. The incubator provides training on each offering in
ComEd’s energy-efficiency portfolio, back-office support to help
participants with certification, information on how to finance
projects and advice on business development. To increase the number
of EESP contractors serving diverse communities, ComEd focused
recruitment on local business owners who identify as ethnic
minorities, women, LGBTQ+, persons living with a disability,
veterans and others.
The EESP Incubator has generated sustainable revenues for
contractors historically excluded from the clean energy sector.
Since 2019, 66 northern Illinois contractor businesses have
participated in ComEd's EESP Incubator. Of those participants, 51
have joined the EESP Incubator Alumni Network, where they receive
long-term support with project submissions and establishing EESP
network partnerships. To date, participating businesses have
submitted more than 140 energy efficiency projects to ComEd. Many
of those projects are located in under-resourced communities, which
supports ComEd's vision for a clean energy future that benefits all
Over time, the EESP Incubator will grow a network of service
providers that reflect the diversity of ComEd’s service territory
and serve traditionally low-participation communities.
