Pepco’s Residential Energy Rebate Programs are Still Available in Maryland

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

A few years ago, residential energy rebate programs abounded. Today, many programs have come to an end or run out of funding, but the good news is that several programs are still available for Maryland residents.

Here’s a list of Pepco programs that offer money back on various remodeling improvements, appliance purchases and others home-related items:

Maryland Pepco Home Energy Audits
– Pepco is currently offering a wonderful deal: for only $100, they will perform a comprehensive energy audit of your home. Having an audit is a precondition for several rebate programs, and from a practical standpoint, it makes a ton of sense to understand how your house uses and wastes energy. I had my audit on October 10th and recommend you that schedule yours to take advantage of this limited-time offer.

After you receive your energy audit, call us to review your results. Your auditor will provide a list of recommendations and we can help make sense of their confusing report and discuss your repair and upgrade solutions. Once you complete the recommended home improvements, you can enjoy energy savings of 20% (or more) and receive up to $1200 in rebates.

Maryland Pepco Appliance Rebate Program – Save energy and money with these rebates, including a $50 refrigerator rebate.

Maryland Pepco Lighting Rebate Program – Change a lightbulb to use less energy, save more money and improve the environment!

Maryland Pepco HVAC Rebate Program – This program offers two rebates, plus ongoing energy savings, with Pepco’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) efficiency program.

Maryland Pepco Energy Wise Rewards Program Energy Wise Rewards is a new way for you to take more control over your energy usage, save money on energy costs and take a step towards a greener lifestyle.

Take advantage of these programs and don’t miss out on the free money! If you have any questions or comments, reach me today at (301) 946-2356 or

Montgomery County is Offering a Residential Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

Recently, we received an email from the Montgomery County Government with this great news:

“Interested in upgrading your home to improve comfort, reduce energy costs and even boost long term home value? Montgomery County, using a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy,┬áis offering a one time program to help you pay for the costs of these improvements.

The Montgomery County Residential Energy Efficiency Rebate Program offers incentives to homeowners for energy efficiency improvements such as insulation, heating and cooling systems, and appliances. Owners of single family properties and condominiums can apply for up to $3,000 of funding per applicant. The minimum rebate size is $500 (typically a $2,000 to $3,000 project).

In order to be eligible, each applicant must have an energy audit from an auditor participating in the Maryland Home Performance with ENERGY STAR or a utility (e.g., Pepco, BG&E, Potomac Edison) audit program.

Homeowners are also encouraged to use these funds in concert with other incentives available from utilities, the Maryland Energy Administration and others.

Detailed information on the program, audit requirements, as well as links to other sources of funding is located on the website. Interested homeowners will also apply to the program online via the website. Real time information on the funding availability is posted on the program website.”
