Education for Transformation

We believe that heat pumps will be used to heat and cool more ComEd customers’ homes in the future and will play a critical role in reducing energy use. We are committed to breaking down barriers and helping transform the heat pump market. One critical priority is for us to help you, our dedicated partners, realize the rapidly growing market opportunity of air source heat pumps (ASHPs) in Northern Illinois. To do so, the ComEd Customer Innovation Team is bringing heat pump focused training opportunities to contractors in Illinois.

We will bring you a variety of free ASHP trainings and learning opportunities. This training will be offered through a combination of webinars, lunch and learns and in-person training opportunities.
