" Allegheny Power is working with the Maryland Energy Administration to provide stimulus moneys to subsidize the cost of audits to homeowners. Allegheny Power asked the state of West Virginia to participate in the program, but the Manchin administration declined. (You might want to contact West Virginia politicians to ask them: Did they decline the offer because, as “This Old House’s” Steve Thomas says, energy efficiency could shut down unnecessary power plants?) For now, West Virginia homeowners must pay in full for an audit. A full audit can cost about $390, and a walk thru costs about $200. But your payoff starts with your next utility bill."
Good old "Regular Joe" Manchin, always on the side of us regular folks who elected him. Have I mentioned that the power companies paid for his inaugural shindig?
