Builders only

Nicor Gas and ComEd® provide incentives to builders who construct homes that are at least 20 percent more energy-efficient than current requirements of the State of Illinois Energy Code. Builders can earn up to $450 per certified home. As a member of Contractor Circle, builders can also take advantage of these great benefits, customized to fit your needs.

In addition to our great benefits for installing members – including listing in our Find a Contractor tool, cobranding opportunities and free marketing materials – here are some of the additional benefits just for our builders and raters.

  • Free lawn signs
    • You did the work to make sure a property was built to program standards. Now, you can let the whole neighborhood know. Your commitment to building energy-efficient homes will be on display when you place our free Contractor Circle energySMART built home lawn signs at your construction sites.
  • Media exposure
    • With opportunities to be featured in case studies, our Contractor Circle spotlight, our website, and our social media, you could be reaching our base of 2.2 million customers without lifting a finger.
