Retrofit Baltimore is a project of the non-profit Civic Works. We serve as a resource for the community and provide information about the potential for energy retrofits to dramatically lower your energy bills, while making your home healthier, safer and more comfortable. We also bring residents together, so that as a community we can ensure that our home energy improvements create jobs for underserved Baltimore residents, while minimizing our environmental impact.
The hot summer months are upon us. With our thermometers rising and our air conditioning costs soaring, we know that our homes are wasting energy and money. The good news is that the Columbia Association has partnered with Retrofit Baltimore, a program of the non-profit Civic Works, to make it easy and affordable for residents to improve the energy efficiency and comfort of their homes. As a non-profit community resource, Retrofit Baltimore will provide you with trusted information, and guide you through each step of the process. If you decide to improve your energy efficiency, the program will connect you with a pre-screened and vetted contractor, and work to ensure that you receive the highest quality service.
Retrofit Baltimore has negotiated with vetted contractors and worked in collaboration with the CA to bring a unique benefit to residents of Columbia through the Columbia Energy Efficiency Upgrade Co-op. As a result, Columbia residents will receive a significant bulk purchasing rebate. This rebate is in addition to Baltimore Gas and Electric rebates that cut the cost of improvements in half, up to a total rebate of $2,000.
Join your neighbors for the Columbia Energy Efficiency Upgrade Co-op Meeting at Amherst House to learn more about the benefits of home energy efficiency and how you can take advantage of these incredible incentives. Come to hear how you can make your home cool for the summer, take control of your energy costs, and reduce your environmental impact.
