Westborough – The sponsors of Mass Save® have announced that Westborough is one of nine communities selected to participate in the 2021 Municipal Partnership and will benefit from funding and support to implement energy efficiency outreach. Other communities selected include Andover, Cambridge, Chelsea, Framingham, Haverhill, Lawrence, Marshfield, and Methuen. The Mass Save sponsors serving the cities and towns selected for the Municipal Partnership effort include Eversource and National Grid.
The Municipal Partnership provides grants of up to $25,000 to Massachusetts municipalities that meet the partnership’s goals for implementing energy efficiency outreach in their residential and small business communities and achieve exceptional energy savings by completing energy assessments and the installation of energy upgrades. These incentives are in addition to energy efficiency incentives already available to residents.
Municipalities submitted applications to participate, and grants will be awarded based on the goals achieved by the end of the year.
In addition to providing a financial incentive, the sponsors will provide these communities with support throughout the duration of the year including:
- Collaboration calls with municipalities to learn best practices for outreach; and
- Marketing materials and local event support.
Together the sponsors of Mass Save and the Municipalities will strive to complete approximately 1,700 online home energy assessments to help customers better understand the energy use in their home, insulate nearly 3,900 homes, provide incentives for 3,500 heating and/or cooling equipment efficiency upgrades, and provide nearly 600 small businesses efficiency solutions through turnkey energy assessments. In achieving that goal, each municipality could earn up to $25,000 in financial incentives, based on population, for their municipality.
