Slipstream is conducting a market analysis of the all-electric homes market in Illinois to determine the viability of a program offering.
This research project will quantify the current market size, homebuyer demand and growth trajectory of the all-electric homes market in Illinois along with associated program cost and energy savings potential. This will include a market analysis informed by secondary research and interviews with local builders and home energy raters. The findings from the market analysis will be used to evaluate different potential pathways for incentivizing deeper levels of energy efficiency in residential new construction. The research team will then compare various incentive strategies for all-electric homes using existing ComEd® incentive offerings. The team will make recommendations for an all-electric homes pilot; such an effort would likely seek create partnerships with several builders and incentivize 5-20 homes for construction in 2020-2021.
