Power Saver Retrofits
HouseFunds for Home Energy Efficiency Improvements!

Coming Summer 2014! Express Interest HERE.
The Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources has received a grant from the Maryland Energy Administration's EmPOWER Clean Energy Communities program that will allow us to offer a second Power Saver Retrofits program for moderate- and low-income Frederick County homeowners. Through this program, eligible homeowners will receive a comprehensive Home Performance with Energy Star audit and up to $5,000 in energy efficiency improvements for their home. If the audit determines that a home's heating and cooling system (HVAC) needs to be replaced a total of $8,000 is available for both efficiency improvements and HVAC replacement. There is no cost to the homeowner to participate in this program. To be notified about the launch of this program and application availability, please fill out this Interest Form or contact Lisa Orr by email  or phone (301.600.6864).
