The Baltimore Gas & Electric Company (BG&E) offers the Home Performance with Energy Star Program that 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, numerous incentives for energy efficient equipment and appliances are available for participating homes. Contractors are also encouraged to participate in the program. Please see qualified contractors and other important information on BG&E's program web site.
