An Alliance to Help Illinois Residents Lower Their Energy Costs

About Energy Impact Illinois

Energy Impact Illinois makes it simple to lower your bills and improve the comfort and value of your home.

The Energy Impact Illinois (EI2) program will connect you with a trusted energy advocate to help you identify how your home uses energy – and wastes it – and identify the most cost-effective improvements you can make for a more efficient and comfortable home.

We’ll serve as your advocate through the entire process and help you find rebates and loans to reduce the cost of energy efficiency improvements. More than 4,000 homes in Illinois have participated in Energy Impact Illinois, saving an average of $400 annually on utility bills. Many of the homeowners that have worked with us have also qualified for the Illinois Home Performance with ENERGY STAR certificate.

Here’s how the program works.

First, call us to get started.

We’ll explain the process and connect you with a qualified contractor who will provide a comprehensive energy assessment of your home for just $99. Here’s what you can expect during your energy assessment. Call us today at 1-855-9-IMPACT to schedule one.

We’ll be there every step of the way.

We’re already working throughout Chicagoland and will be your advocate through the entire improvement process. We oversee our contractors to make sure the work gets done right at a reasonable price.  We connect you with rebates and loans that can reduce the cost of energy efficiency improvements. The typical improvements, such as air sealing and insulation, are very affordable and pay for themselves quickly.

Improve the comfort and value of your home.

Homes that complete the EI2 program are warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, keeping your family more comfortable. If your home becomes 15 percent more efficient, you’ll also qualify for the Illinois Home Performance with ENERGY STAR™ certificate, which proves to prospective home buyers that your home is energy efficient. Research suggests that homes with these certificates sell faster and at higher prices.
