Rebate Caps:

Rebate not to exceed project cost.

A customer is eligible for the following maximum rebate per service address per calendar year for equipment installed in that calendar year. A service address is the physical address at which electricity is provided. The equipment installation date is the latter of the Concord Building Department's electrical inspection approval date or sheet metal inspection approval date (applicable if the project requires sheet metal ducting work that goes beyond minor repairs).

- $10,000 in air source heat pump or air-to-water heat pump rebates or

- $15,000 in ground source heat pump rebates or

- $15,000 in rebates if a combination of air source and ground source heat pumps are installed

If a property is sold, the new account holder’s cap resets at $10,000 (ASHP or AWHP) or $15,000 (GSHP) per service address per calendar year, regardless of rebates awarded to previous account holders.

Rebate cannot be combined with a National Grid/Mass Save rebate for the same equipment.

Rebate Eligibility for Multi-Unit Properties

Multi-unit properties include:

  • residential condominium complexes
  • single family homes with informal apartments
  • 2 or 3 family homes
  • Multiple houses on one parcel
  • Properties with outbuildings, where heat pump is to be installed in the outbuilding
  • Apartment buildings with 4 or more units
  • Transient or non-transient group quarters


 The way in which CMLP applies its heat pump rebate policy to different types of multi-unit properties is based upon:

  • Property type classification codes known as “Use Codes,” that are displayed in the “Land Use” section of each property record in the Concord Assessor’s database
  • Electric service addresses in CMLP’s billing system.
