ICC Certification – Energy Efficiency Measures Installer

In 2016, Illinois passed an ambitious piece of legislation called commonly as the Future Energy Jobs Act that aggressively expanded the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program.  This act recently went into place in Illinois in January 2018, and with it comes a new certification for energy efficiency companies in Illinois.

The Energy Efficiency Measures Installer ” is a new ICC certification in town.  Ever wonder if your company you might choose to do business is a fly by night company – possibly previously working under a different name and might not be trustworthy?  The Energy Efficiency Measures Installer certification will tell you that the company has the proper business entity structure to do work in Illinois.

This certification is the responsibility of Program Implementers of ComEd, such as Nexant, DNV GL, Willdan and Franklin Energy to assure.  While not the responsibility of the commercial customer or public sector customer receiving a rebate check, it is a good idea to check certification before getting started with your Trade Ally.

You can check your current Trade Ally on the ICC Website, or reach out to Verde Energy Efficiency Experts – as we were one of the first Illinois companies to get certified.

2020 Update – Comed and the energy efficiency community now refer to Trade Allies as “Service Providers”.  So keep that in mind as you navigate this space, or reach out to your favorite Service Provider or Trade Ally – Us!
