5 contractors get weatherization grants

Five Maryland contractors who provide weatherization services to low-income households have been awarded $3.3 million each through the Department of Housing and Community Development’s Targeted and Enhanced Weatherization program: Edge Energy (Beltsville), Green and Healthy Homes (Baltimore), Hawkeye Construction (Baltimore), Elysian Energy (Silver Spring) and ADP Consultants (Potomac). Funded through the Customer Investment Fund, the three-year grants will enable the contractors to assist more than 500 households a year or about 1,700 households in all, DHCD said. The Customer Investment Fund was established by the Public Service Commission under the merger settlement between Exelon and the Constellation Energy Group Inc. The Department of Energy has estimated that each household retrofitted through weatherization services will save on average $350 a year on energy bills.
