How much money is your business wasting?!

Find Energy Cost Saving Opportunities FREE of Charge! On average, 30% of energy used by facilities is either used inefficiently or wasted. Imagine what your current systems could be costing you!

The Delta Institute is offering free energy efficiency assistance that will help 150 eligible commercial buildings and industrial facilities in Cook County find and act on real opportunities to save on operations and maintenance.

Eligible facilities could receive:

  • An “energy audit” – a comprehensive assessment of a facility’s energy use that identifies the most cost-effective opportunities for energy savings.
  • Engagement with Delta’s expert staff to review the audit’s findings and find resources to implement identified strategies.
  • Retro-commissioning and direct installation services.
  • Access to funding for energy efficiency projects through Delta’s revolving loan program.
  • Assistance applying for government and utility energy efficiency incentive programs.

To be eligible, the building or facility must be located in one of the designated 110 Cook County municipalities. A full list of eligible communities, as well as the two-page application, is available online at Or, for more information, contact Program Director Wyllys Mann at (312) 554-0900 x 27 or
