July 22, 2008


National Grid (Mass Electric) Small Business Program is for business customers with an average demand use of 200 kilowatts or less (or 40,300 kilowatt-hours or less) per month. The program aids qualifying commercial customers in installing energy efficient equipment. National Grid (Mass Electric) provides a free energy audit and report of recommended energy efficiency improvements. If company chooses to make recommended improvements, National Grid will pay 80% of the cost of the installation of energy efficient equipment. The remaining 20% can be paid off in the form of a zero interest loan over a maximum period of 24 months. Eligible energy efficient equipment includes: lighting upgrades, energy efficient time clocks, photo cells for outdoor lighting, occupancy sensors, programmable thermostats, and walk-in cooler measures. Customers can register online at the website listed above for a free energy audit.

Commercial and industrial customers who are interested in improving their energy efficiency, but who do not qualify for the Small Business program, may still qualify for other financing options offered by National Grid (Mass Electric). Customers should contact the Business Service Office for more information.
