April 2023: Washington Gas

Washington Gas offers a variety of energy saving programs and solutions designed to help both residential and commercial customers reduce their energy usage and save money.

The energy efficiency programs in Virginia are approved by the State Corporation Commission (VA SCC) in accordance with the VA Conservation & Ratemaking Efficiency (CARE) Act and will run from May 2022 to April 2025 for this cycle. These programs seek to reduce residential and commercial customers’ therm usage through high-efficiency equipment and appliance incentives, energy conservation kits, limited income weatherization programs, behavioral energy programs and customer education. The team at Washington Gas works with several program implementation vendors to deliver these programs to residential customers, commercial customers, and builders. Programs are available to existing residential and business customers, along with new construction incentives for builders and developers.

Washington Gas works with Community Housing Partners (CHP) Energy Solutions, a nonprofit organization based in Virginia, to install weatherization measures to qualified Virginia residents. The program provides energy efficiency measures to households living in affordable multifamily properties, as well as single-family homes.
