Occasionally the Illinois Corn office is approached to provide information that may benefit our members. This is one such opportunity for NICOR gas customers. Working to improve Illinois corn farmers’ profitability is our bottom line at IL Corn.

Please be aware of the Nicor Gas Business Custom Incentive Program and the financial incentives available to Nicor Gas customers for installing energy efficient equipment.

Rebates are available for installing natural gas-saving energy efficient grain dryers. Several agribusinesses have already taken part in this program and have received incentives worth $20,000 - $30,000 for the installation of new grain dryers.

Please visit the Business Custom Incentive Program page for more information. Rebates are also available for other natural gas-saving equipment and projects, including furnaces, boilers, water heaters, and insulation.

Incentives can be as high as 50 percent of the total project cost, up to $500,000. In order to apply for an incentive for an upcoming grain dryer project, please contact a program representative at 312.344.1520 or Pre-approval is required before any work is started or new equipment is purchased.
