The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCNC) has expanded its air source heat pump rebates to commercial/non-residential buildings to help support the Commonwealth’s clean heating and cooling initiative. Businesses, non-profit organizations and public buildings that plan to install fewer than 20 single head heat pumps or 20 tons of cooling capacity are now eligible to participate in this exceptional rebate program.
Air source heat pumps offer clean heat
The program provides residential rebates of as much as $2,500 and commercial rebates of as much as $12,500 for small-scale air source heat pump rebates. Additional rebates may be available for public, non-profit and affordable housing organizations, as well as income-based rebates for owners that qualify.
Unlike previous program rules, system owners will apply for these rebates directly. To apply, the system owner will need to provide the paid-in-full receipt, within 90 days of system installation.
If you run a large commercial operation, you’re not out of luck! You can also apply for rebates under the Commercial Scale Air Source Heat Pump Program. This program is designed to support multi-family buildings, businesses, non-profits and public projects installing more than 20 units or more than 20 tons of cooling capacity. For these large installations, rebates of up to $93,750 are available. Additional funding is also available for non-profit, public and affordable housing projects.
These programs offer an exceptional opportunity to replace old, inefficient heating and cooling systems with money-saving, reliable and quiet year-round heating and cooling options. They also offer a cost effective option for switching from oil, propane or traditional electric heat to a cleaner, more efficient heating and cooling technology.
