The District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Utility currently offers the D.C. Home Performance program (DCHP). DCHP provides a $500 incentive to properties which successfully complete qualifying home energy upgrades. This incentive is available to D.C. residents living in single-family homes, rowhomes (each unit is ground to sky) or converted (1 to 4 unit) apartments and rowhomes. Both owner-occupied homes and rental properties with the property owners’ authorization are eligible to participate.
Qualifying upgrades require working with a participating contractor, completing a minimum of $1500 work of approved improvements, reducing air leaks by at least 10% and completing project by September 30, 2012.
More information on program requirements can be found on the program website.
