By installing energy-efficient cooling equipment, relocating your servers or upgrading system software, you could realize annual energy savings.

The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program can help your school identify and implement energy-efficient solutions that save money and energy.

Ways to Save

  • Airflow management – Reduce energy use by 10 – 20 percent by preventing heat from IT equipment mixing with cool air supply.
  • Upgrade equipment – Generate less heat and reduce your energy use by upgrading computer room air conditioners and chillers with high-efficiency compressors or high-efficiency uninterruptible power supplies.
  • Control systems – Monitor your operations and set temperature points and fan speeds to optimize savings.
  • Closet-to-colocation site transfer – Benefit from economies of scale. Colocation sites rent space to businesses and organizations to house their servers and other company hardware, thus reducing energy consumption and enhancing reliability. Many of these facilities have state-of-the art cooling, power supply, bandwidth and physical security capabilities resulting in uptime and reliability exceeding 99.9 percent.

Saving Energy Is as Easy as 1, 2, 3…

ComEd knows that ease and efficiency are of paramount importance, and we are dedicated to helping your school be a top energy performer with minimal inconvenience. That is why we offer assistance to you every step of the way.

  1. Start with ComEd’s FREE facility assessment of your school’s IT systems.
  2. We help you with the application process to ensure it is easy and stays on track. Once approved, incentive funds are set aside and your project can begin.
