This new pilot will offer technical support, generous financial incentives, and performance monitoring to implement high-efficiency decarbonization measures. This is a great opportunity to get the technical support and financial assistance to bring your home into the 21st century!
Please consider applying before the end of the month, and sharing with those who may be interested.
Both Wellesley’s Municipal Light Plant and the state’s MassSave Program have increased the amount of money a homeowner can get for home energy efficiency improvements.
MASS SAVE REBATES

Special financing options are also available through Mass Save®, including a” HEAT Loan”: 0% financing for qualified individuals.
