KenJiva joins Nicor & ComEd Residential New Construction Program

The Residential New Construction service is offered jointly by Nicor Gas and ComEd. The energy-efficiency service works with eligible builders and raters to construct homes that are at least 20 percent more energy efficient than homes built to current Illinois energy code.

How it works

Builders partner with an accredited HERS rater (like KenJiva) that completes a minimum of two site inspections. The first inspection is conducted before the drywall is installed and the final inspection is conducted when the home is complete and ready to occupy. During this inspection, the HERS rater will conduct the required performance testing and then verify that the home’s energy efficiency level exceeds the current Illinois energy code by at least 20 percent.

After testing, data collection and site verifications are complete, the HERS rater submits the required paperwork on behalf of the builder. Once the paperwork is processed and the project is verified complete, the homeowner will receive a Certificate of Completion that includes estimated energy savings and HERS Index. Both the builder and rater receive an incentive for meeting program requirements.
