MassSave creates more ways for your home or business to get efficient during the COVID-19 emergency
including a 100% rebate for insulation upgrades for qualifying homes

During a time when contractors cannot enter your homes, Mass Save sponsors are offering these no-cost / no-home-visit virtual home energy assessments. The MassSave Online Home Energy Assessment is a self-guided online home energy survey.

The MassSave Virtual Home Energy Assessment will offer guidance from a home energy professional. Through a phone or video call, a home energy specialist will walk you through an assessment of your home and provide you with opportunities to reduce your monthly energy usage and costs.

For eligible homes, energy savings packages will be delivered to your doorstep following the audit – LED light bulbs, faucet aerators, smart power strips, and programmable or wifi thermostats.

Right now, for any qualifying customer who signs up by May 31 by taking the Online Home Energy Assessment or Virtual Home Energy Assessment, Mass Save will cover 100% of your insulation upgrade costs! All work will be scheduled at a future time when it is safe to proceed.

Choose one of two ways to get started:
» MassSave Online Home Energy Assessment
A self-guided online home energy use survey

» MassSave Virtual Home Energy Assessment
Phone or video call with a home energy specialist to walk you through an assessment of your home.

Even if you've had a Mass Save energy assessment before, you can sign up again if it's been over two years.

Small Business Owners! Get on board for energy savings, too!

MassSave is also working on ways to virtually engage with small businesses. Word is they'll be increasing incentives to help businesses out in this trying time - details still being worked out.

Please contact Rose at BEAT's EE-Pittsfield initiative to get in touch with a MassSave business program administrator. We have links to both assessments and information on small business programs at The MassSave program is state-wide; you don't need to be in Pittsfield to participate.
