Christopher B. Burke Engineering Announces Partnerships to Offer Energy Saving Programs to DuPage Businesses and Municipalities

Rosemont-based Christopher B. Burke Engineering, Ltd. (CBBEL), the firm trusted for its strong municipal and other public/private sector relationships throughout DuPage County, has partnered with Constellation, an Exelon Company and CPower Energy Management to bring Constellation’s Efficiency Made Easy (EME) program and CPower’s Demand Response (DR) program to DuPage County businesses and municipalities. Both programs offer significant bottom-line savings and budget controls while allowing customers to stay focused on their core competencies.


CBBEL is committed to providing energy efficient solutions to meet the energy requirements of your projects and will incorporate green technologies where appropriate to meet or supplement those energy needs. Staff members are LEED Accredited Professionals experienced in providing efficient, sustainable design and commissioning services.

CBBEL’s Mechanical/Electrical/Energy Engineering Department provides a wide range of unique services, including pump/lift station design, water main design and water system modeling, standby power generator design, SCADA systems, sewer and force main design, comprehensive lighting studies and roadway lighting design, motor control centers, building switchboards, sports lighting, sports field and landscape irrigation, building MEP design, restroom/storage buildings for recreational facilities, and water storage tank design and painting.


When considering energy efficiency projects, successfully choosing the right efficiency provider to help identify and develop solutions to meet your goals can be challenging and is only part of the process – you also need to consider how to pay for these upgrades that provide long term benefits. That’s why Constellation created Efficiency Made Easy® (EME) — a solution that can play an integral role in achieving your strategic financial and environmental goals.

This unique, award-winning solution provides an opportunity to pay for these conservation measures with no upfront capital through monthly charges that appear as a single, fixed-price line item as part of your monthly competitive power or gas supply bill from Constellation. You can realize cost savings through a reduction in consumption and an improved load profile, which will positively impact future energy costs and the ability to meet environmental goals over time.
