Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas to Launch Natural Gas Savings Program

Customers Can Reduce Energy Consumption, Better Manage Bills and Apply for Rebates on Efficiency Upgrades

CHICAGO, IL. – Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas, the two utility companies that deliver safe and reliable natural gas to approximately 1 million customers in Chicago and 54 communities in Lake and Cook Counties, will launch a portfolio of natural gas savings programs this month, some of which feature complimentary on-site energy assessments, installation of no-cost energy-saving devices and rebates on heating equipment upgrades. The program’s goal is to help homeowners, property owners, and businesses reduce energy use. Some portions of the program will be offered in collaboration with ComEd and will offer customers ways to save on electricity use as well. The portfolio of programs will run for three years, with program updates occurring periodically.

"We are committed to energy efficiency and to providing customers with a variety of tools to help them use energy more wisely," said Will Evans, president of Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas. "Rebate incentives can result in families and business owners making improvements they would otherwise have delayed, making a difference to their monthly bills, improving the comfort and value of their properties, and helping the overall environment."

Beginning on June 1, information about the program can be found online, along with the necessary application forms for customers and participating contractors. The program offers incentives for all customers including residential, multi-family property owners and managers, small businesses, and commercial and industrial facilities. Each offering has its own unique savings opportunities, rebates and installation incentives. These programs will replace the Chicagoland Natural Gas Savings Program, which will be phased out and ending on June 30.
