Income Eligible Programs

Income Eligible Programs

If you live in a single family home or 2-4 unit building and you qualify as low-income*, you may be eligible for energy-saving upgrades that can lower your monthly energy bills and make your home more comfortable at no cost. Property owners may also be eligible based on your or your tenants’ income.

These upgrades may include:

  • Insulation and air sealing
  • Heating and cooling upgrades or replacements, including heat pumps
  • High-efficiency appliance upgrades
  • Energy and water saving devices, such as:
      • Programmable thermostats
      • High-efficiency shower heads and faucet aerators
      • LED light bulbs
      • Advanced power strips
  • Covering the full cost of some upgrades or repairs that are necessary before installing recommended insulation or other energy service upgrades

The Sponsors of Mass Save have partnered with the Massachusetts Community Action Program (CAP) Agencies and Low Income Energy Affordability Network (LEAN) to provide these upgrades at no cost.

There are additional energy assistance programs available through the local CAP agencies and Mass Save Sponsors, including:

  • Discounted gas and electric rates
  • Fuel Assistance (winter heating season)
  • Assistance paying overdue gas and electric bills
  • Other non-energy related assistance programs
