As a homeowner, you know how important it is to save energy. Utility companies in the state of Massachusetts agree with you. That’s why several of them have joined together to create a program called Mass Save.
What is Mass Save?
This initiative is being implemented by nine different electric and gas utilities in the commonwealth in cooperation with the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources. Mass Save is designed to be a clearinghouse of information, services, incentives, and training programs that promote energy efficiency in homes and businesses across Massachusetts.
Discounts and Rebates
One of the most attractive benefits offered by Mass Save is a list of rebates and discounts for upgrading to energy-efficient products. Homeowners can find savings on everything from light fixtures and refrigerators to heat pumps and thermostats. The database is even searchable by ZIP code so you can discover how to take advantage of these incentives for your home.
Heating and Cooling Systems
Mass Save can be an invaluable resource for people who are thinking about installing a new heating or cooling system. The site offers information on the COOLSMART Central AC Program, and also provides a guide for consumers on purchasing a new heating system. It even lists energy saving tips and answers to frequently-asked questions about installations.
Appliances and Lighting
There’s also an extensive list of ENERGY STAR certified appliances, lighting supplies, and home electronics. You can click on a particular category and find specific information about which products are the most energy efficient. You can even search by ZIP code to find retailers near you that sell these particular items.
New Home Construction or Renovation
If you’re planning to construct a new home or build an addition onto your existing one, you should definitely visit the Mass Save website. You’ll learn how to outfit your home according to ENERGY STAR certification standards and discover all of the benefits you’ll receive by doing so. In addition, you can determine whether you are eligible for the Massachusetts Residential New Construction Program.
Home Energy Assessments
Homeowners can also learn about how a home energy assessment can help them save money. You can complete an online assessment or schedule a contractor to perform one at your home. And you can check out a list of income-eligible programs or construction-related rebates which may apply to your project.
Mass Save for Businesses
Mass Save also has a wide variety of resources for business owners who want to reduce their energy bills. It offers advice on replacing or retrofitting old equipment as well as sources of financing assistance for these types of projects. The site also outlines energy-saving success stories from businesses in many different industries, and provides links to download various forms and documents needed to participate in the programs it discusses. Finally, Mass Save offers a list of training and certification resources for contractors and businesses to help their customers achieve substantial energy-saving results.
