Resources for Energy Efficiency
Most electricity and natural gas ratepayers contribute to Mass Save, a program to support energy efficiency programs that are overseen by the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER). You may qualify for a free energy assessment. If you qualify for an assessment, an energy specialist will come to your home and provide you with a report on the most cost-effective energy efficiency measures for you to pursue. The energy specialist will also inform you of rebate opportunities. Whether you get an assessment or not, we strongly recommend that you visit the following web sites for ideas and information about rebates and tax incentives.
Do you have a boiler that is at least 30 years old?
For a limited time only, NSTAR and National Grid are offering generous rebates to residential customers replacing functioning 30 year old boilers.

Your new boiler must be installed by July 31, 2012 to take advantage of the rebate (Click here to learn more about the steps toward claiming your rebate).
