The Illinois Office of Energy & Recycling supports economic development and job creation through a variety of programs and services in the areas of energy efficiency, renewable energy, recycling, and alternative transportation. Programs demonstrate that economic development, sustainable energy, recycling practices, and environmental protection go hand in hand.
Individually tailored programs are available to assist Illinois citizens, communities, non-profit organizations, businesses, industry, and other government agencies in an effort to achieve the Offices’ mission. In addition, the Office continues to promote the leadership of the State of Illinois, through its own energy and recycling policies and practices at state facilities.
