Learn About Home Performance Program
When you work with us through the Home Performance Program, you will be improving your home’s energy efficiency – and also unlocking valuable rebates to save you money.
Here’s how it works:
One of our experienced Home Performance Energy Advisors will evaluate your home’s energy efficiency, rating it on a scale from 0 to 10. They will provide you with a comprehensive report outlining recommended updates to enhance your home’s efficiency.
Even if your initial efficiency score isn’t a perfect 10, you have an opportunity to make substantial improvements. Our extensive contractor network is at your service, ready to perform the necessary upgrades. Please note that to qualify for rebates, you must select an approved contractor from our network.
As you embark on your journey to a more energy-efficient home, some upgrades may qualify for additional rebates. To ensure you’re eligible for these savings, remember two key criteria:
- Improvements must be carried out by an Appalachian Power approved contractor
- Your home must be heated by electricity

West Virginia Homeowners Rescue Program
The West Virginia Homeowners Rescue Program is a crucial initiative funded by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Its purpose is to provide support to West Virginia homeowners who are facing financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether the financial struggles began after January 21, 2020, or were ongoing before that date, this program is designed to offer assistance.
This assistance encompasses various qualified mortgage and housing-related expenses. The overarching goal is to prevent delinquency, default, foreclosure, the loss of utilities, interruptions in home energy services, and the displacement of homeowners.
