Chicago Spends $1.6M More for Energy Efficiency in Apartment Buildings

The 50th building has joined Retrofit Chicago’s Commercial Buildings Initiative, a voluntary effort to reduce energy use by 20 percent within 5 years.

In addition to the Commercial Buildings Initiative milestone, the city also announced a new joint partnership with Elevate Energy to implement comprehensive energy efficiency upgrades in 2,500 electric heated apartment units and distribute efficiency products to an additional 7,500 households across Chicago over the next three years.

Together the comprehensive apartment efficiency upgrades and distribution of free efficiency products will cost about $1.6 million over a 36-month period, while reducing total net electricity usage by 4.503 GW over that period.
