CUSTOM CLIP IS BACK!
A CUSTOM approach that could save your business over a MILLION dollars!
Competitive Large Incentive Project (CLIP)
The Competitive Large Incentive Project (CLIP) through Ameren Illinois can provide your business or organization with the opportunity to receive generous cash incentives and bonus dollars not available through our regular program.
Why should my business or organization participate in CLIP?
No minimum payback requirement - project paybacks under six months are eligible
Both standard and custom measures can be submitted under CLIP
Incentive-based on annual operating hours rather than an assumed rate (significant opportunity for 24/7 facilities)
Up to up to 85% of your project costs are covered (save EVEN MORE with the addition of the Early Completion Bonus)
Multiple projects can be conveniently submitted on a single application
More specifics of CLIP:
- NO PROJECT CAP
- Your project could qualify for an additional cash incentive bonus up to 15%
- You can request your incentive level
- Requested electric incentives cannot exceed $0.20/kWh
- Requested gas incentives cannot exceed $1.25/therm (private sector) and $3.25 (public)
- Intended for large projects with a minimum projected annual savings of 200,000 kWh and/or 10,000 therms
- Projects are eligible if payback period does not exceed 15 years
- Projects are competitively evaluated based on specific criteria (see the application for details)
CLIP provides complex projects with more time to complete as well as a lucrative cash bonus not available through our regular program. Your project could qualify for a cash incentive bonus of 15% if completed by March 31, 2020*.
*Applicable equipment must be installed and operable by this date.
An Illinois manufacturer completed a number of custom projects through Ameren Illinois. With CLIP, the company could have submitted these multiple projects on one convenient application. More importantly, the company missed out on approximately $75,000 in additional cash incentives plus bonus dollars by going through the custom program rather than CLIP.
Don’t wonder about what you should have done. Get the biggest and best cash incentive opportunity — go CLIP.
