Changes for PEPCO and BGE Rebates

HPwESThere are major changes in the HPwES program coming up on August the 15th 2017. This program has been in place since 2010 and the changes are focused towards increasing the incentives for electrical reductions and reducing the incentives for other fuels such as gas, oil and propane. The cost of the audits will remain the same; $100 paid by the customer and $300 paid by the utility company. The rebate incentives for the work will change, specifically:

  • Customers with gas, oil or propane heating will see their rebates get reduced by ~80%.
  • Customers with electric heat pumps or resistance heating will see their rebates stay the same or even increase.
  • Pepco customers will not get rebates for gas, oil or propane equipment replacement, but BGE customers will.
  • All customers will get higher incentives for early retirement of air conditioners and heat pumps.

So, if you have had an energy audit and you are procrastinating, now is the time to get the work done if you want to take advantage of the Pepco and BGE rebates.
