- ABOUT MassCEC
MassCEC provides rebates and other incentives to residents who are looking to adopt clean energy at their own homes.
Residential incentives offered by MassCEC include rebate programs for solar electricity and solar hot water, vouchers for the replacement wood-burning heating units and assistance with other technologies.
The Residential Air-Source Heat Pump program is part of a suite of MassCEC Clean Heating and Cooling programs. MassCEC recently authorized $30 million in funding for these programs through 2020.
Rebates are available for new or existing homes that meet the following eligibility requirements:
Building on the success of the Solarize Mass program, Mass Solar Connect launched in late 2014 and partnered with non-profit groups to increase education and outreach about solar electricity, while also reducing the cost for group members to go solar.
MassCEC has announced the selection of three non-profit groups and two online installer bidding platforms to participate in the 2017 Mass Solar Connect program. Mass Solar Connect offers members of selected non-profits competitive pricing for solar PV systems. Members will be able to gain access to an online marketplace where they can request proposals from a pre-selected group of installers.
In order to participate in Mass Solar Connect, residents must own property in Massachusetts and be a member of the participating non-profit group. All systems must be installed in Massachusetts.
Now in its seventh year, Solarize Mass is a partnership between MassCEC and the Green Communities Division of the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources (DOER).
How it works
The Solarize Mass program looks to increase the adoption of small-scale solar electricity systems through a grassroots educational campaign, driven mainly by local volunteers and reduced pricing that increases the savings for participants.
