Columbia Gas of Ohio (CGO) partners with Huntington National Bank's Energy Performance Solutions program to offer a loan complementing rebates for energy efficient equipment to residential customers. Rebates may be available if a customer purchases or installs measures recommended by an eligible home energy auditor. The program requires that a representative of Conservation Services Group inspect and test the home before informing the residents of recommended measures and possible incentives. The $50 energy audit fee will be reimbursed if the customer qualifies for efficiency rebates. Income eligible customers may receive from 100% to 500% more rebate money depending on the measure.
