Mayor Emanuel Announces Chicago is First City in the Nation to Include Energy Costs in Home Listings
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, CNT Energy, and Midwest Real Estate Data LLC (MRED) announced that Chicago home listings on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) will display annual and monthly gas and electric costs. Chicago now leads as the first city in the nation to provide energy efficiency data on homes listed for sale, an initiative made possible through the Mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team and a coalition of real estate and environmental partners working together.
“We are proud to partner with the City and CNT Energy so that participants at every level of the home purchasing process will be able to make smart comparisons and ultimately make an informed decision regarding sustainability,” said Russ Bergeron, CEO of MRED.
Homebuyers should talk to their realtors to see this information, along with detailed energy reports, online at MRED’s connectMLS website.
