Business customers of Berkshire Gas, Cape Light Compact, Columbia Gas of Massachusetts, National Grid, Eversource, Unitil, and Liberty Utilities may be eligible for zero-interest loans from $5,000 to $500,000 to make energy efficiency improvements.  Efficiency improvements that may be eligible for financing under this program include:

  • High-efficiency lighting and controls
  • Motors/variable-frequency drives
  • HVAC
  • Commercial and industrial kitchen equipment
  • High-efficiency natural gas equipment
  • Custom measures

The local utility or energy efficiency provider prepays interest on the loan, resulting in zero interest for the customer. Customers must have a qualifying project that is pre-approved by the local utility or energy efficiency provider and must use a pre-approved lender. A list of participating lenders is available on the program web site.
