ActOnEnergyВ® - What is ActOnEnergy?
• ActOnEnergy® offers financial incentives to customers to be more energy
efficient
• Rate Relief Act (passed in 2007) by Illinois Legislature
–
Created a 10 year energy efficiency program to be administered by Utilities.
–
Municipalities and co-ops declined to participate.
• Funded by you the customer
–

Small Business Energy Efficiency Where do we Start?
• Top Five Energy Saving Categories:
1.
Lighting
2.
HVAC
3.
Building Envelope
4.
System Controls
5.
Process Equipment
Small Business Energy Efficiency Where do we Start?
• Identify Opportunities through:
• Energy Audit
• System Analysis – by one of your trade allies
• Self Assessment – do it yourself energy audit kits
= a potential energy saving project

Is your Project Eligible to Participate in the
ActOnEnergy В® Program?
• There are two incentive categories:
1.
Standard measure incentives
• Standard measure incentives have deemed savings associated with the
measure and a deemed incentive amount
– (e.g. – LED exit sign = $20 per exit sign)
Custom measure incentives
2.
• Custom measure incentives require savings analysis of the proposed
measure compared to the existing equipment baseline of energy
consumption
– (e.g. – proposed geothermal heat pump system compared to existing electric furnace
and DX cooling; electric furnace and DX cooling annual kWh usage compared to
geothermal heat pump annual kWh usage = kWh savings)
10

Fill out the appropriate Application.
Standard Measure Application Process:
–
Standard Measure incentives are “prescriptive” in nature the incentive amounts are established per energy efficiency
measure.
–
Your project must meet Standard Program requirements
–
Program requirements can include listing on CEE lamp and
ballast list, Energy Star ratings, etc.
1.
Complete the project.
2.
Fill out Standard Measure application.
3.
Attach the invoice(s) and spec sheets for the project to the application and send the application

How to Apply for your ActOnEnergy В® Incentive
Custom Measure Application Process:
–
Custom Measures require “pre approval”, therefore the
application must be submitted and approved before the
project starts. An energy savings analysis is required
with the application.
1. Fill out Custom Measure application (including all
information listed under “Required Documentation”)
2. Attach energy savings analysis, equipment spec sheets
submit to:
and
ActOnEnergyProjects@Ameren.com
or
fax to: 309.677.7950
3. Application and energy saving analysis will be evaluated for compliance with Program guidelines
(1 to 7 years simple payback, compliance with other Program requirements, etc.)
4. If approved, Program sends a “pre-approval” letter that confirms project has been pre-approved
and the amount of incentive approved for the project
5. Customer signs a copy of pre-approval letter and sends back to ActOnEnergy.
Once signed letter has been received, customer is released to start project.
19
