Original Post: Maryland Energy Rebate Program
Did you know that the average household dedicates 11% of its energy budget to lighting alone? Turn off the lights when not in use, and save big! Did you know that a plugged in plasma t.v. runs an estimated $159 a year? Sheesh. Click here for a list of 13 more money saving tips.
In an attempt to reduce energy consumption state-wide by 15% by 2015, the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) is offering a Home Performance Rebate Program to homeowners who successfully transition from thinking green to living green. The MEA website is full of interesting tidbits, so be sure to allow yourself a serendipitous moment or two and check out their information.
By combining 35% savings from the MEA (up to $3,100) along with a 15% rebate from the utility companies, homeowners can save up to 50% on energy improvements for a limited time. Not too shabby.
Before you can cash in on these rebates, you need a home. That's where I come in! Give me a call if you're looking for property in the Maryland suburbs surrounding DC.
