Learn how to increase the comfort of your home* and reduce energy costs with the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program, available to Maryland residential customers of Potomac Edison for a fee of $100 (a $400 value).

*Mobile homes qualify for this program

This program will help you identify energy efficiency improvements that may qualify you for 50 percent of the costs — or up to $2,500** — to cover energy-saving home improvements, including:

  • Air sealing
  • Duct sealing
  • Insulation

Step 1:  Get a Home Performance Audit

Get a Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® audit performed by a Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified expert who will work with you one-on-one to identify energy-saving improvements. The expert will evaluate your home’s heating and cooling systems, insulation and windows and conduct a blower door test to detect air leaks that could be costing you money.

The home energy expert also may install energy-efficient products in your home, including:

  • Up to 12 compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs)
  • LED 9W bulb
  • Kitchen faucet aerators
  • Bathroom faucet aerators
  • Low flow showerheads
  • Electric water heater pipe insulation
  • Electric tank wrap†

†Water heater must be older then 1994, located in an unconditioned space and also be electric to qualify for this measure.

Step 2:  Make Recommended Energy-Saving Improvements

After the audit, the home energy expert will provide you with a comprehensive report and recommend improvements to increase your home’s energy efficiency. You decide which improvements to implement. Improvements must be made by a participating contractor enrolled in the program. Find a home energy expert in your neighborhood.

Step 3:  Receive Additional Savings

The final step of the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Program is to schedule a test out audit with a participating home performance contractor. Having this final audit performed will enable you to receive an incentive of up to 50 percent – or up to $2,500** – toward the purchase of the following energy-saving home improvements:

  • Air sealing
  • Duct sealing
  • Insulation

**You may qualify for up to $2,500 if duct sealing is installed as an improvement, otherwise the maximum per home is $2,000.
