Complete the screening application
What happens after I complete the application?
- PGW will review your screening application. If your project is eligible for further review, we will request comprehensive project details to assess the energy savings and costs.
- If eligible, we will send you a grant agreement with PGW’s grant offer.
- After the project has been completed provide copies of paid invoices and certificates of occupancy (for new construction projects). PGW will then schedule an on-site verification of the efficiency measures, and if all criteria are met, you will receive a grant check within 4-6 weeks.
