Summary:

The Potomac Electric Power Company (PEPCO) offers the Home Performance with Energy Star Program which provides incentives for residential customers who have audits performed by participating contractors. This is a whole-house approach to meeting the MD executive goal to reduce electricity consumption by 15% per person by 2015. An energy audit of homes will determine the most effective and appropriate energy saving measures for customers. In addition to energy savings and comfort, incentives are provided for implementing recommended measures such as home insulation and energy efficient windows.  Maryland Energy Association incentives will pay additional incentives to ENERGY STAR home building contractors. Please see qualified contractors and other important information on PEPCO's program web site.
