ComEd - Distributed Generation Rebates

November 02, 2023

Summary

As required by Illinois law, Commonwealth Edison offers rebates for distributed generation installation. Rebates are available as follows:

  • For systems not owned by Residential or Under 100 kW Demand Class, or for Community Solar systems, the available rebate is $250 per kW
  • For these customers, an additional rebate of $250 per kW is available for installation of energy storage systems
  • For systems owned by Residential or Under 100 kW Demand Class customers, the available rebate is $300 per kW
  • For these customers, an additional rebate of $300 per kW is available for installation of energy storage systems

Receipt of a distributed generation rebate requires customers to receive a lower credit rate for net-metered electricity; the credit rate is the same as that received by community solar subscribers, including the energy supply, capacity, and transmission values but not delivery service charges. Receipt of a rebate for energy storage installation (but not the distributed generation installation) does not require net metering customers to move to the lower credit rate.
