Led by the Mayor’s Office, the Retrofit Chicago Residential Partnership brings together organizations seeking to advance residential energy efficiency for Chicago residents.
Partners include ComEd, Peoples Gas, Community Investment Corporation, Elevate Energy, and the Chicago Bungalow Association.
As of 2014, the Partnership members have saved Chicago residents over $4 million annually with over 100,000 installations of energy saving products in residences and over 20,000 deeper retrofit improvements.
“We’ve been saving on our energy bills. It’s exciting to see these products make a difference!”-Carleen L, homeowner.
“Going through the program made owning this building viable. If you are a building owner making a large investment in your property, you have to incorporate energy efficiency. This must be done first to stabilize the property.”-Ljubomir S.,
owner of 3 residential buildings.
