Advances in air-source heat pumps, tight wall assemblies, solar panels, electric vehicles, and smart home technologies present new possibilities for residential construction. Builders of high-performance, all-electric homes can receive $2,000 per home from ComEd Energy Efficiency while selling customers on superior comfort and quality and bundling with rooftop solar to offset the home’s energy use.
In the 2020 pilot year of the program, a wide variety of homes participated— single-family, townhomes, coach houses and 2-3 flats; speculative and custom; urban, suburban and rural. Projects must meet energy efficiency requirements for a tight envelope, all-electric HVAC, heat pump water heating, lighting and appliances. No gas connection required.
