Baltimore Gas and Electric Launches ENERGY STAR New Homes and Advanced Lighting Package Programs
As a part of its comprehensive Smart Energy Savers Program, Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE) launched an ENERGY STAR for New Homes Program on June 1, 2009. In addition to providing three tiers of incentives for separately metered homes that meet and exceed the EPA ENERGY STAR for New Homes guidelines, this program also provides additional incentives for lighting efficiency. For detached homes, the incentive for completing the EPA Advanced Lighting Package is $525 and for attached homes (townhouses, duplexes) the incentive is $325 per unit. BGE is working with the key players in the lighting market in its service territory to ensure that they are well informed about the program and associated incentives as they work with their builder clients. BGE will host an Advanced Lighting Package focused meeting on Wednesday, October 7th in Columbia, Maryland, which manufacturers and manufacturers reps are invited to attend. For more information on this event please contact Chiara D’Amore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
