It pays to save energy.

Philadelphia Gas Works and Mayor Nutter announced today a new EnergySense Rebates program which helps customers correct energy waste and receive money for doing so.

Under the new program, customers will get assistance in conducting a home assessment to identify energy waste which could improve living conditions and may address concerns related to mold, mildew, pest infestations, carbon monoxide and structural damage. 

Assessments usually cost $500, but as part of the new program, PGW will buy down the costs, so customers pay $150. Customers who move forward with recommended work can get up to $3,500 in EnergySense home performance improvement rebates. 

The program will run for the next two years. If you want to learn more about the program, visit or call 215-764-5468.
