Does anyone remember when Flossmoor residents paid for their OWN home improvements? I sure do!

Sounds like a beneficial program for those who qualify. The greatest return on investment for most homeowners would be to improve their homes insulation rating. Heating and cooling bills can be lowered dramatically through raising the R value (rating of heat loss through a material). A reasonable figure is that you can lose 25% of your homes heat through the roof. If the attic insulation is above code and if you go from a rating of 32 - 60 you could significantly improve your heat retention and lower your bills dramatically. It is not unreasonable to expect to recoup the cost of the insulating in 2-4 years. And if Comed or Nicor is footing 70% of the bill it is in my opinion a no-brainier.

Actually Hernendo, you did pay for this program. It was payed for by a little line item on your Com Ed and Nicor bill and placed into a fund for homeowners to use. However, if your communities' electric service is contracted out by the community to a secondary provider, they will not qualify. Naperville is one that comes to mind.

Another thing....if you have an "Energy Party" at your house to get neighbors and friends involved, the $99 energy assessment bill is paid!
