Multifamily Tenant Equipment

Choosing ENERGY STAR® certified appliances is an effective way for property owners and tenants to save on energy costs without sacrificing performance. Whether replacing existing equipment or outfitting a new space, BGE offers financial incentives that make it cost-effective to choose high-efficiency models that’ll lower energy costs over the lifetime of the products.

Get financial incentives to cover up to 50% of the cost of energy-efficient appliances and equipment for individual units in multifamily housing, including apartment buildings and condominiums. The following types of appliances can qualify for incentives:

  • Air Purifiers
  • Clothes Dryers
  • Clothes Washers
  • Dehumidifiers
  • HVAC Systems
  • Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heaters
  • Pool Pumps
  • Refrigerators

Who Is Eligible

Anyone from renters and condominium owners to building owners, property managers and landlords can take advantage of these incentives for purchasing eligible energy-efficient appliances and equipment. However, which rebate application you need to complete and submit depends on who the BGE electric account holder is and whether the account is a commercial or residential account.

How You Can Participate

Are You a Building Owner, Property Manager or Landlord?

  • Building owners, property managers and landlords with a commercial electric account: If your building has five or more units, you most likely have a commercial account. If you are the BGE electric account holder and your account is a rate schedule G, GS, GL, P or T (look under the “Electric Details” section of your BGE bill), email Business@BGESmartEnergy.com or call 410.290.1202 to get started.
  • Building owners, property managers and landlords with a residential electric account: If your building has no more than four units, you most likely have a residential account. If you are the BGE electric account holder and your account is a rate schedule R (look under the “Electric Details” section of your BGE bill), you’ll participate through our residential appliance rebates program. Simply purchase your appliance and complete the appropriate rebate form, as needed.

Are You a Condominium Owner?

  • Condominium owners with your own BGE electric account: If you have your own BGE electric account and receive the electric bill, simply purchase your appliance and complete the appropriate rebate form, as needed, through our residential appliance rebates program.
