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, is 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.”
