The Energy Savers Nonprofit program helps nonprofit organizations and religious institutions save energy and money. The program offers a complete building evaluation, expert advice on the best energy efficiency improvements, guidance on financing options and utility rebates, and construction management and oversight.
Right now, CNT Energy is offering free energy efficiency assessments to 10 qualifying nonprofit organizations in July. The assessment includes a walk-through with our expert energy analysts, equipment testing, and in-depth energy use analysis. It’s the first step towards reducing energy use and costs. If your organization or house of worship does not qualify, you can still apply for a low-cost energy assessment.
The First United Church of Oak Park went through the Energy Savers Nonprofit program earlier this year. After our analysts conducted an assessment and went over the findings with church trustees, they opted for the most cost-effective recommendation to replace all of the building’s steam traps. Approximately 20 percent of steam leaving a central boiler is lost via leaks; replacing steam traps provides more balanced comfort to church occupants. To complete the improvements, the church received nearly $10,000 in Nicor Gas financial incentives and rebates, and will save more than $3,500 a year on operating costs.
CNT Energy can help your organization take advantage of rebates and incentives for efficiency upgrades, too.
CNT Energy is a mission-driven organization; we understand how energy efficiency can help your organization minimize operating costs, focus resources on achieving goals, and improve the comfort, health, and safety of your building.

The program is available to nonprofit organizations and religious institutions throughout the seven-county Chicago region and the City of Rockford.
