The Clean Energy Advantage Program is only available to homeowners in Montgomery County who reside in their home as their primary residence.

However, even if you rent your home, there are a number of resources you can use to learn how you can reduce your energy costs and reduce your carbon footprint.

  • Visit Montgomery County’s new Energy Connection website to learn what resources may be available to you. https://montgomeryenergyconnection.org/
  • If you will be searching for another rental apartment or home, please take a look at the Green Bank’s “Guide for Renters” that we have co-branded with the North East Energy Partnerships. It contains many helpful hints about what questions to ask before you rent a property to ensure that you’ll be renting an energy efficient home.
  • Is your electrical bill in your name (vs. electrical costs included in your rent)? If so, you can schedule a free Quick Home Energy Check-Up. An energy efficiency expert will visit your home, provide you with tips on how to save energy in your daily life, as well as up to 12 LED bulb and an advanced power strip.
