Have we emphasized how incredibly large the rebates are right now?
We can't resist sharing the news. As Larry Chreiten, Director of Green Energy Consumers Alliance, said, "You are not going to find rebates like this anywhere else in the country."
Below is the recording and slides from Senator Creem and Green Energy Consumers Alliance's webinar on the federal and state electrification incentives.
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
If you live in a one to four unit home and get a bill from National Grid (for example, if you heat your home with natural gas or you have a gas fireplace or stove), then you are eligible for the larger rebates from MassSave. Before you can qualify for these rebates or incentives, you must schedule and complete a no-cost home energy assessment with an authorized Mass Save® home assessment contractor such as HomeWorks.
Special financing options are also available through Mass Save®, including a” HEAT Loan”: 0% financing for qualified individuals.

Join the “How to heat your home more efficiently and comfortably,” discussion TONIGHT at 7pm with experts from Abode Energy Management. Wellesley homeowners will be on the call as well to share how their air source heat pumps take on New England's winters and summers. Heating with electricity pulled from renewable sources, vs. gas, is HEALTHIER as well.
It's a good time to consider heat pumps as the Wellesley Municipal Light Plant has extended its Clean Comfort Program to June 2022. Abode is the contractor they have hired to help Wellesley residents explore heat pump solutions. Abode's Heat Pump Specialists are provided at no cost to Wellesley residents. This program also includes a $2,000 rebate to those who replace air conditioners or furnaces with efficient, quiet, air-source heat pumps.
To learn more about the financial rebates as well as unbiased, personal, expert advice, call 781-235-7600 or email email@example.com. Schedule a consultation to improve your home's heating/cooling systems today.
You will be more comfortable and will reduce your energy usage. Don't forget, buildings emit 56% of the greenhouse gas emissions here in Wellesley, and 58% of that that comes from the residential sector. Wellesley has an emissions reduction goal to meet so let's rethink the way we heat and cool our homes. You will find many benefits along the way.
Due to broad interest, Wellesley’s Municipal Light Plant has extended its pilot “Clean Comfort” program through June 30, 2022. Wellesley residents have been taking advantage of this program which offers personal, expert coaching as well as financial rebates to move to air source heat pumps. To learn more about this program and air source heat pumps, join a discussion with experts and users on December 9th at 7pm.
Register here for this 1 hour Zoom meeting to learn how you can save money and lower your carbon footprint.
“The no cost coaching offered by the Town’s consultants Abode Energy Management, in combination with the incentives, made this transition easy,” said a Wellesley resident.
If you are considering replacing oil furnaces or air conditioners, you may be particularly interested in this program. For those that have air source heat pumps, learn how to use them to their full capacity as well.
