Grants to Illinois publicly owned and operating water pumping, distribution and wastewater treatment facilities to reduce on-site energy consumption by a minimum of 20% of an average or typical operational plant profile. Applicants are encouraged to contact program staff prior to applying.

The Foundation will select projects that propose comprehensive energy efficiency and renewable energy projects that reduce the highest percentage of energy relative to plant baseline use; or lead to the "greenest" plant resulting in a "net zero energy" facility.

Energy saving measures include but are not limited to aeration systems, turbo blowers, dissolved oxygen sensors, sludge dewatering, variable frequency drives (VFD) for pumps and motors. In addition, renewable energy systems are eligible for support.
