Mass Solar Loan
Installers should submit applications as normal, and once the loan applicant begins income verification, our income verification consultant, Inclime, will walk them through changes. Additionally, if the current emergency impacts a project’s ability to meet program timelines, please reach out to email@example.com.
Clean Heating & Cooling Incentives (Solar hot water, ground-source heat pumps, automated wood heating, and whole-home air-source heat pump pilot)
MassCEC has granted an automatic 3-month completion extension to all clean heating & cooling rebate projects. If the current emergency impacts a project’s ability to meet the extended completion deadlines, please reach out to MassCEC.
MassCEC will accept project completion documentation and make rebate payments before projects complete local inspection if it is not possible to complete local inspections at this time. MassCEC has created an updated project completion forms that allow for this option, along with an email confirming that the system is installed and operational.
MassCEC will be more flexible about signatures on participant’s agreements. If installers have new customers during this time who are willing to commit to a project but are unable to sign the participant’s agreement (perhaps after a remote site visit), MassCEC will accept email confirmation from the homeowner. Please reach out to MassCEC with questions about this pathway.
If the current emergency impacts a project's ability to meet program timelines, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. Inclime, our income verification consultant, will walk applicants through changes.
