Rebates with Home Performance
When your home energy audit is complete, your contractor will provide you a prioritized list of recommended energy efficiency improvements specifically tailored for your home. You decide which solutions best fit your budget to move forward with. If you make the improvements, BGE will reward you with rebates ranging from $100 to $7,500.
