Saving More on Energy Costs - Energy Efficiency is the Next Step
by Peter Van Buren
ClearlyEnergy helps people compare and easily select the best electricity provider for their needs. They empower you to control the cost and environmental impact of energy you buy.
After choosing a provider, the next step is to reduce the amount of energy you use. Regardless of your supplier, using less energy will always reduce your environmental impact and lower your costs.
At TerraLogos Energy Group , we empower people to gain control of their energy use through energy efficiency.
Energy Efficiency Saves Money and MORE
Nationally, our buildings use a lot of energy. Our homes account for a full 20% of total energy we use as a country, and our commercial buildings account for another 20%.
And, we are using way more energy than we need to use. The Federal Department of Energy estimates that we can easily and cost-effectively reduce energy use by 20-30% with energy efficiency upgrades to our buildings. We’re throwing money away.
By investing in energy efficiency, both commercial & residential properties start saving money on their monthly utility bills from day one. Surprisingly, these same investments also improve comfort and indoor air quality, reduce maintenance costs, and increase the property’s value.
You get more while paying less! Plus, you will be doing your part to reduce our impact on the environment and climate change.
Rebates Available to Cover Improvements
In 2008, Maryland became a national leader in the movement for energy efficiency by targeting a 15% reduction in our statewide energy use by2015. To encourage private investment in energy upgrades, the EmPOWER Maryland program provides a whole suite of rebate programs for completing cost-effective energy improvements.
For homeowners, the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR programs provide $3,500 or more in cash rebates for the most commonly recommended energy improvements.
For commercial property owners, projects can vary widely, with rebates from the thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on the size of the project and the amount of energy saved. We can help you determine if your project would qualify for a 10% rebate on the low end to up to 80% on the high end. Plus, we can often offer state sponsored low-interest or even no-interest financing for both residential and commercial projects!
We Make It Easy
As an energy improvement contractor, TerraLogos has developed a one-stop shop approach to quickly and easily help customers gain control of their energy use through energy efficiency.
Our certified Building Analysts conduct energy audits and diagnostic testing to analyze each property’s current energy use and create an effective improvement plan. Guided by the Audit Report, our contracting department completes the recommended improvements selected by the owner. Then, to complete the service, we test again to verify results and handle the filing for rebate submissions.
We make it easy to obtain the best results for the least cost, saving money immediately and for the long term. Gaining control of our energy use is one of the first, most important steps on our path to a sustainable, clean energy future.
We would welcome the opportunity to work with ClearlyEnergy customers to improve the energy efficiency and performance of their properties. Together we can make a big difference.
