Power Savers Program Receives $460,000

 FREDERICK, MD – This Earth Day, Frederick County residents can save money by making their homes more energy efficient. Energy audits and energy-efficient home improvements are available at no cost to qualified homeowners through Power Saver Retrofits, a program of Frederick County’s Office of Sustainability and Environmental Resources. Improvements and audits are funded through a $460,000 grant that the Maryland Energy Administration awarded to Frederick County this week.

“Making our homes more energy efficient is something all of us can do to make a difference,” Frederick County Executive Jan Gardner said. “We save green by going green.”

To qualify for the program, households must meet income requirements, based on the number of people living there. For instance, individuals living by themselves qualify if they make $57,750 or less annually, while a four-person household is eligible up to $82,500. For more information about the program, income limits, or to download an application, visit or contact Dawn Ashbacher, the County's Sustainability Program Manager, at 301-600-6864 or
