Ameren Illinois EE Portfolio Presentation

Peoples Gas & North Shore Gas EE Portfolio Presentation



Feb. 14 Ameren Illinois Follow-up Items:

  1. A question was asked about the lack of gas savings for retro-commissioning. Ameren will check on which projects were completed, and whether those projects were converted to MWh.
    • Response: Ameren Illinois did not have any gas savings RCx projects finalize in 2023. Accordingly, we had no therms converted for RCx. We did have RCx projects in progress in 2023 that have potential therm savings, but those projects won’t complete until 2024.

Feb. 14 Peoples Gas & North Shore Gas Follow-up Items:

  1. Peoples Gas & North Shore Gas will follow-up to share more information about Smart Radiator Controls.
    • Response: Provided additional information to Chris Neme directly.
  2. For IQ eligibility (listed on slide 21), confirm the 80% AMI household size and annual $ in the home.
    • Response: Most current information is available on Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas websites for customers to access. Direct links to the AMI and LIHEAP and PIPP annual income information are available below.
  3. For 2023, how many non-low income participants installed insulation and air sealing?
    • Response: There were 255 Market Rate Weatherization participants in 2023.
  4. How do the utility-sponsored weatherization programs communicate with Community Action Agencies?
    • Response: Customers eligible for IHWAP are referred to the IHWAP program path if the agency has near-term capacity to complete the work.

Additional Follow-up:

  • Several stakeholders are interested in understanding the utilities’ view on how the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) federal EE funding will be coordinated with Illinois EE programs. Stakeholders also requested to review the Q&A document the utilities shared with IL EPA. IL EPA will present to SAG on March 5th about IRA funding. SAG Facilitator will share these questions with IL EPA.
