Rebates for your Home

through the state's MassSAVE program. Contact them at www.masssave.com/ or (800) 232-0672 to learn more. ***
If you are interested in solar photovoltaic panels for your home, your best financial option is to wait until the state finalizes a new incentive program, hopefully in the spring of 2019. The previous SREC incentive program was retired and replaced by the SMART program on 11/26/18. Concord residents are not eligible for the SMART program. Once contracts are finalized with the state, CMLP will offer the MLP Solar Program for arrays up to 25 kW. We will post information here once the program is confirmed.
Heat pumps have been in use in warmer climates for decades, but in the past few years have undergone a technology revolution and are now a great heat source in cold climates such as New England. These clean heating and cooling technologies can greatly reduce your greenhouse gas emissions, reduce your energy costs, and improve the comfort of your home.
CMLP gives rebates for 3 types of heat pumps. Note that these CMLP rebates have *no expiration date*:

CMLP has two rebate programs to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs):
EV Level 2 Program: This home charging system installation rebate covers up to $250 on a Level 2 charging system consisting of a 240 volt wiring circuit from your house electrical panel to a NEMA 14-50 outlet or to a home charging station.
EV Miles Program: This off-peak charging incentive offers electric bill credits to EV owners when charging at home is done during off-peak hours: 10 PM to 12 noon, Monday through Friday and all weekend.
Residents are eligible for rebates of up to $3 per LED bulb for a maximum of 50 LED Light Bulbs per year
After an energy assessment, weatherizing your home is the best first step to lower fuel bills, a smaller carbon footprint, and fewer drafts so you'll be more comfortable at home in both summer and winter. Weatherizing includes both insulating and air-sealing. You can insulate your attic, basement, walls, pipes, and ductwork, as well as air-seal your entire building envelope - caulking the windows, doors, ductwork, and any minor cracks where unconditioned air can get in. Some of these areas include behind switchplates and around recessed lighting. Find out more about rebates here.
