Illinois companies that receive their power through Ameren Illinois Utilities are eligible for a portion of $500,000 in incentive money set aside to encourage companies to improve their building's energy efficiency.  In addition to the incentive money, projects that are completed by May 31 may qualify for an additional 10% bonus.  This bonus is based on the total project cost.

"Since unveiling the ActOnEnergy(TM) electric energy efficiency program last June, the Ameren Illinois Utilities have approved $3.5 million in incentive payments to business customers throughout their 43,700 square mile service territory." Source: PR Newswire

The incentive details and an application form (PDF) are available on the ActOnEnergy website.
