Equipment Loan Program

IHP is pleased to announce its Equipment Loan Program, developed by Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance (MEEA) in partnership with the Illinois Green Economy Network (IGEN) thanks to funding from ComEd, Nicor Gas, Peoples Gas and North Shore Gas.

The Equipment Loan Program assists eligible home performance professionals to hone and enhance their skills by making energy evaluation equipment available to them to use no charge. These professionals may also use the equipment to perform assessments at the job site.

Energy evaluation equipment is organized into kits to ease the loan process and housed and maintained at various participating colleges geographically dispersed across the state.

Eligible individuals include those who are Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified or who are seeking BPI certification, those who are Duct and Envelope Tightness Verifier (DET) certified, and those who are listed as a Diagnostic Energy Tester at
