The North Shore Gas Energy Efficiency Program provides energy-saving
offerings specially designed for income-eligible customers to help improve energy-efficiency,
home comfort and building safety.
Some offerings allow customers to take control of their own energy costs at home,
while others are designed for property owners, managers and developers.
Multi-Family income eligible
Building owners and managers whose buildings are designated as income-eligible
may qualify for comprehensive energy-efficiency retrofits in common areas and
tenant spaces. Improvements may include free weatherization, Energy Star certified
LEDs, programmable thermostats, advanced power strips, boiler tuneups and more.
Tenants who live in multi-family residences are encouraged to let their landlord or
property manager know about the multi-family energy savings opportunities offered by North Shore Gas.
Public housing authorities can receive technical and financial assistance to make
energy improvements to their properties. Services include energy assessments and
direct installation of high-efficiency products such as lighting and thermostats,
plus deeper savings measures with HVAC and weatherization. Eligibility is limited
to State of Illinois-designated public housing authorities in the
North Shore Gas service area.
Affordable housing new construction
Affordable housing developers can receive technical guidance and incentives for
single-family and multi-family new construction and major renovation projects that
increase the energy-efficiency of income-eligible households. Education about energy
efficiency best practices is an integral part of the program. Incorporation of specific
whole-building energy-efficiency measures is required.
