Montgomery County recently announced it will provide rebates of up to $75,000 to small and medium sized businesses, multi-family properties, and non-profit organizations to offset a portion of the cost of energy efficiency upgrades.

The program will reimburse 50% of the cost of qualified energy efficiency improvements or $75,000 per recipient, whichever is less.

The program will also provide rebates for residential energy efficiency improvements identified through a “Maryland Home Performance with ENERGY STAR” audit.

Funds are available for improvements to the building envelope, lighting, heating and air conditioning, and other categories that will reduce energy consumption and lower energy bills.

The county anticipates having approximately $1.7 million available and applications will be accepted in two rounds. Round 1 applications are due April 15, 2011, and Round 2 applications are due May 15, 2011. Additional information and the online application can be found at, please send any questions to
