NICOR Announces New Program

Nicor Gas has launched a new program to help redevelop and revitalize communities through building upgrades.

The Nicor Gas EEP Economic Redevelopment Program focuses on serving communities that are in need of economic redevelopment, as well as businesses and organizations that create jobs, offer social services or provide affordable housing. The program offers financial incentives and extensive technical assistance, helping building owners with every step of the process from evaluating energy efficiency needs to applying for rebates and finding qualified contractors. 

Projects that complete the recommended energy efficiency upgrades can qualify to receive up to $100,000 in rebates.  The program also offers extensive technical assistance (valued at up to $20,000) to help building owners through every step of the process.

  • Commercial, industrial and large multi-family buildings served by Nicor Gas.  Public-sector buildings are not eligible.
  • Projects located in, or promote economic development in, Enterprise Zones, TIF districts, or other economically challenged areas
  • Other projects that could qualify are those that create jobs, offer social services, rehabilitate brown fields or vacant buildings, or provide affordable housing.
