to Summary by DSIRE
The AEP Ohio gridSMART® In-home Energy Assessment and In-home Energy Audit Programs offer rebates for the installation of energy-saving measures recommended by a program-approved auditor. Customers can request an audit or assessment from the first number listed, below, and have six months from the date of the audit/assessment to submit all rebate applications. Rebates will be paid to all eligible and qualifying applications until the budget is exhausted.
The Energy Assessment costs $25 and will result in the installation of energy saving equipment in residences by a qualified auditor. The auditor will also provide recommended energy improvements to be implemented within six months. The In-home Energy Audit is a comprehensive diagnostic performed by a program-approved auditor following Building Performance Institute (BPI) standards including a blower door test to find air infiltration and a combustion efficiency test to gauge appliances and equipment efficiency. A variety of rebates are available to customers who make recommended improvements. Customers that have an audit or assessment and have at least $1000 worth of measures installed will have audit fees refunded. Contact AEP for more information on this program.
