Direct‐install measures are offered through BGE’s Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program at no additional cost to eligible customers.
measures are available for selection:
Energy‐Efficient Light Bulbs — CFLs use 75% less energy and last up to 10 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs. An LED lasts even longer.
Efficient‐Flow Showerheads — Program‐approved, efficient‐ flow showerheads use up to 40% less water than a standard showerhead, which uses 2.5 gallons per minute. You’ll also use less energy to heat every shower.*
Smart Strip — Average household standby energy consumption can account for 5%–10% of total electricity use. Smart strips automatically turn off the flow of electricity to products that go into standby mode and shut down other peripheral devices (like printers or speakers) when not in use.
Pipe Insulation — Insulated pipes reduce heat loss and can help you conserve water, since you don’t have to wait as long for hot water to come out of the faucet.*
