How is this service available at no additional cost?
Through the EmPOWER Maryland Act of 2008, every Maryland resident and business contributes to an energy efficiency fund, through a small monthly surcharge which is tacked onto their monthly energy, which is then used to fund no-cost programs for homes just like yours! By getting a Quick Home Energy Check-up from Zerodraft, you are taking advantage of a program you have already paid for. Residents in the following utility service areas can schedule a no-cost assessment with Zerodraft: Baltimore Gas and Electric (BGE), Potomac Edison, and Pepco.
Similar to a QHEC, Dominion Energy Virginia’s Home Energy Assessment (HEA) program is designed to help customers make simple, energy-efficient changes to their homes at no cost. The program is completely funded by Dominion which allows Zerodraft to conduct the assessment and generate a personalized report showing projected savings and rebate incentives for making improvements to reduce energy usage.
