BGE: WinterReady Program

Here's a great money-saving program that reader Angela shared with me!

The BGE WinterReady program provides information to help you conserve energy and keep heating costs reasonable this winter season.

A BGE representative will spend about an hour in your house assessing:

  • insulation levels
  • air tightness
  • heating and cooling systems
  • windows and doors
  • lighting and appliances

The fee for BGE's assessment is $40. HOWEVER, should you decide to go ahead with 3 or more of their suggested energy-saving measures, the $40 fee is waived.

Angela reports that the energy-saving changes BGE suggests are at BGE's cost (uh, that means FREE to you!!!). She allowed BGE to install 2 low-flow bathroom sink spigots, a new lower-flow shower head, and 6 CFL lightbulbs. All for FREE! How cool?

For more details, be sure to check out the BGE WinterReady site here. Thanks Angela!
