Maryland Energy Administration Awards Takoma Park $90,000 Energy Efficiency Grant

The Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) has granted the City of Takoma Park a $90,000 grant for low-to-moderate income home energy efficiency renovations. The grant will assist approximately 10 energy efficient makeovers for qualifying low-to-moderate income homeowners within the City.

Upon completion of the required application, eligible applicants receive a free home energy audit and assessment. The assessment will identify which energy efficiency improvements would make the greatest impact. Possible energy upgrades include insulation improvements, draft reduction, heating and cooling equipment, appliances, and more. The average savings on electric and gas bills for participants is expected to be over $500 annually.

Residents can download an application or pick one up from Public Works at 31 Oswego Avenue M-F 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Grants will be awarded on a first come first served basis until funds are exhausted.

Takoma Park is committed to achieving an environmentally sustainable community, and this award puts the City one step closer in obtaining that goal.
