Some of the federal tax credit programs that have been active in recent years are no longer available, but MassSave still has rebate programs that you can take advantage of. These programs can help lower the cost of replacing or updating your heating, cooling and hot water delivery systems, and they’re worth taking a look at.
New, high-efficiency heating equipment can reduce your operational costs by as much as 30%. By itself, that will help you save money immediately and provide a faster return-on-investment. Currently, these rebates are available to utility customers served by Berkshire Gas, Blackstone Gas, Columbia Gas of Massachusetts, Liberty Utilities, National Grid Gas, NSTAR Gas and Unitil Gas. Western Massachusetts Electric customers may also qualify for certain MassSave rebate programs.
