Action of the Week
  • Households: 140
    Perform an NO-COST Quick Home Energy Check-up from Potomac Edison

    If you are not ready for a comprehensive home energy audit, a quick professional or do-it-yourself inspection can help to set you on the right path to making energy efficiency improvements for your home. Search online for “home energy audit DIY” to find tips and guidelines for how to effectively assess your home on your own.

    Potomac Edison also offers a Quick Home Energy Checkup* at no charge. This assessment is less detailed than the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® audit and will not qualify for the home improvement project rebates. A kit of energy saving devices is provided to participating households. Call 1.888.267.4685 to schedule an audit.
