My sister recently participated in the Maryland Home Performance with Energy Star program, sponsored by the Maryland Energy Office and five local utilities. Here's what she had to say about her experience: (Yeah Maryland!)

"The Maryland Home Performance with Energy Star website is friendly, functional, and full of great information.  I was first introduced to MDHomePerfromance.org by my brother who is editor of Home Energy Magazine.   He was telling me about an upcoming issue the magazine was producing with an article about Maryland’s robust energy performance rebate program.  From that conversation I went immediately to the MDHomePerfromance.org website and because of the website’s functionality, within an hour I was able to: find a neighborhood qualified contractor, contact them for an energy audit, and download the rebate program check list and rebate forms.  With the assistance of my qualified contractor, I was able to get my home sealed and insulated, which resulted in a decrease in air flow out of my home of over 35%.  With the combined Maryland, Montgomery County, and PEPCO rebates, over 50% of the cost of the sealing and insulation was covered.  Thanks Maryland Home Performance!"
