All You Need is Love (And Savings)

This week isn’t just for lovers, it’s also for those who love savings. Starting February 15th, any Maryland homeowners looking to make their energy efficiency dreams a reality will get a 10% increase in possible rebates. However, don’t wait too long, this change only lasts until March 31st, 2023.

What’s the buzz about?


Every rebate currently provided by EmPOWER Maryland offers incentive rates at $18 for electric and $5 for natural gas savings. This means that Pepco pays $18 per lifetime for each MMbtu an appliance produces and Washington Gas pays $5 per lifetime for each MMbtu an appliance produces. (MMbtu stands for Metric Million British Thermal Unit, which is a measurement of heat.) From the 15th of February to the 31st of March, the electric incentive rate will increase to $20. 

All you need to secure these savings is to choose a date for the job, pay 30% of the job deposit, and sign a service agreement.

If you haven’t already, start with a home energy audit and assess what your home needs. Our energy auditors can work with you to personalize whatever changes you’re looking to make. Tired of getting cold feet? Break up with your home’s inefficiencies and say “I do” to energy efficiency!
