Empower Maryland Logo

In 2008 the Maryland Legislature passed the EmPowerment Maryland Energy Efficiency Act which mandated that the Maryland Energy Administration, working with utilities statewide and the contractor community, develop energy saving programs. Its purpose is to reduce the demand on our electrical grid in order to prevent severe electrical shortages and rolling black outs in the not too distant future without the need to build new power plants.

These initiatives provide you with opportunities to make your home more energy efficient, more comfortable, and to considerably lower your monthly operating costs for a substantially reduced investment.

The Maryland Association of Energy Contractors has urged the Public Service Commission to increase the rebate level on the higher efficiency equipment which saves energy, money and promotes the EmPower Maryland Program.

A.J. Michaels is a proud member of this Association.

Whole Home Duct Sealing

Duct leakage in homes is a significant problem in most homes. A 20% duct leakage causes a 50% drop in your new HVAC system efficiency. This loss is significant. This product is new to the EmPower Maryland Program yet the Public Service Commission, when made aware of these losses and the benefits of whole home duct sealing, as presented by the Maryland Alliance of Energy Contractors, has approved a rebate of 50% of the cost of whole home duct sealing.

Home Energy Audits and Home Performance with ENERGY STAR

A $400 whole home energy audit can be performed by a participating contractor and your cost is only $100 as there is a $300 rebate. The auditor will then make recommendations to make you home more energy efficient using such measures as whole home duct sealing, insulation and air sealing. These measures are eligible for a rebate of 50% of the total cost of the measures up to $4000.

ENERGY STAR Certified Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heaters

For a limited time, earn a $500 rebate on qualifying ENERGY STAR certified Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heaters. These water heaters are at least 50% more energy efficient than standard electric resistance water heaters and save an average household of four people approximately $330 per year and over $3,500 over its lifetime on electric bills.
