EmPower: Application Approved!

By Marcus Hazelwood

We are now an approved service provider of the EmPower Incentive for commercial buildings served by PEPCO utility throughout Maryland! This means that EmPower and PEPCO have confirmed we have the expertise and experience to perform energy audits, recommend energy-efficient upgrades, and install and maintain energy-efficient equipment in commercial buildings.


EmPower is an energy efficiency program that incentivizes commercial building owners and managers to make energy-efficient upgrades to their buildings. Pepco is a large utility provider that serves the majority of Maryland.


EmPower offers a range of incentives and rebates to clients who make energy-efficient upgrades to their buildings. As an approved service provider, we work with clients to navigate the application process and access these funds, helping to make energy efficiency upgrades more affordable and accessible.

As an example of how this works, let’s look at a 150,000 sq. ft. office building with five air handling units (AHUs) that provide heating and air conditioning. A building owner must replace all five units because they are beyond their life expectancy. These five single packaged 60-ton AHUs are eligible for $50,000 ($10,000 each) toward qualifying 1-for-1 replacement units with EmPower incentives through PEPCO, the utility provider.

We are now authorized to help owners get available incentives like this one. In addition to the cost-savings from the incentives and rebates, we guide clients on the best ways to save energy and reduce their energy bills long-term.
