Home Economics of the Chicago Energy Transformation Code

Originally recorded February 2, 2023.

This two-part event included a recorded webinar and an optional in-person electric home tour which was not recorded.

The webinar portion of this program includes a breakdown of the newly effective Chicago Energy Transformation Code’s updated standards, discussion of consumer and builder myths around all electric homes, and details on how Chicago’s new energy code will make it easy for homes to switch from the gas-fired appliances to all-electric appliances in the future if builders or homeowners are interested in going all-electric. We will also learn about ComEd’s current incentives programs can help support the all-electric home transition.

  • Wayne Beals, Realtor & Managing Broker at The Beals Group / EXIT Strategy Realty
  • Scott Farbman, Innovation Lead at dbHMS
  • Sophia Seol, Researcher at Slipstream
