ACSI - Going green

As you probably know, The Natural Gas and Electric Power providers in Illinois have an Energy Efficiency Rebate Program offering significant rebates on many services we perform. But, did you know that we at American Combustion Service, Inc. are Trade Allies of NICOR, Peoples Gas, Northern Illinois Gas, Ameren, NIPSCO and DCEO?

If you will provide us with your natural gas consumption records for your boilers, we will calculate the estimated savings in operating costs and potential rebates, and if the ROI meets your criteria for a reasonable return, we will provide you with a proposal for the burner replacement. We will even fill out the application for “pre-approval” from your natural gas provider. If the application is approved they will send you a “Notice of Permission” to proceed. There’s no obligation to do anything should you decide not to proceed.

We have the skills to accomplish the projects that are funded through these programs. Remember, these funds came from you, the end user; that’s right, it’s your money and we can help you get some of it back to pay for your energy saving projects. The charges for these programs you’re paying for are itemized on your utility bills.

Here are some facilities where we have installed high efficient burners and boilers:

  • The Congress Hotel, Chicago
  • Hinsdale Hospital
  • Ottawa Hospital
  • Lewis University, Romeoville
  • 2430 N. Lakeview, Chicago
  • Tootsie Roll, Chicago
  • Chicago Aerosol, Coal City
  • St. Joseph’s Hospital, Chicago
  • St. Mary’s Hospital, Kankakee
  • Armstrong World Industries, Inc., Kankakee
  • Carus Corporation, LaSalle, IL.
  • American Dental Assn., Chicago
  • Yorktown Mall, Lombard
  • Precision Plating, Chicago

We have recovered well over $1,000,000.00 for our clients and we’re not done yet. Best of all, we have saved our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars per year in energy costs… year after year after year!

Call us and we’ll see if you’re a good candidate for any of these programs.
