Homeowners with Modest Income Can Apply for Upgrades Under the Homeowner Energy Efficiency Program

May 22, 2018

Montgomery County is launching a Homeowner Energy Efficiency Program to benefit a limited number of qualified residential customers. The program is funded by assets the County received after Exelon’s acquisition of Pepco and provides improvements to reduce electric bills for homeowners with modest income while also reducing the load on the electric grid.

   Montgomery County homeowners of all ages may apply, but applicants age 62 or older will receive priority. To be eligible for the program, individuals must own and occupy the Montgomery County home for which they are requesting services, be a PEPCO customer, and meet certain income criteria (e.g., maximum income ranging from $52,550 for a one-person household, up to $99,100 for a household of eight or more persons.)

   Montgomery County manages the Homeowner Energy Efficiency Program and has allocated $1.3 million during Fiscal Year 18, with the potential to allocate additional funds in the future. The County has selected Habitat for Humanity of Metro Maryland to assess the program eligibility of each individual applicant and, as funds are available, to identify needed energy upgrades for qualified households. The County also arranges with contractors to install appropriate materials and equipment in qualified homes.

   Homeowners benefitting from the program will receive free energy-efficiency upgrades to their home which may include attic insulation, upgraded furnace and air conditioning units, water heater replacement, LED light bulbs, a solar-powered attic fan, a programmable thermostat and new appliances.

   Interested homeowners can find more information and apply for the Homeowner Energy Efficiency Program by visiting: www.habitatmm.org/montgomery-county-energy-efficiency-program

   The Homeowner Energy Efficiency Program is funded by proceeds from the merger of Pepco Holdings Inc. and Exelon Corporation. Montgomery County’s support for the merger resulted in $41 million of funds to the County to create programs benefiting Pepco customers in Montgomery County. Additional benefits include a $100 bill credit per Pepco residential customer; improvement of utility reliability and recreation infrastructure; and investments in energy-efficiency, renewable energy and job creation. These funds are administered by the County’s Department of General Services.
