Massachusetts offers rebates for the installation of small-scale, high-efficiency, cold-climate air-source heat pumps (ASHPs) in residential, commercial, public, and non-profit buildings.
Project sites must be located in a utility territory that contributes to the Renewable Energy Trust Fund (National Grid, Eversource, Unitil, and municipal light plants that have agreed to pay into the fund). Alternatively, the project may be located in the territory of a municipal light plant that does not pay into the fund if the project will be replacing an existing (non-ASHP) electric heating system.
Rebate amount varies by type and size of project. Rebate amounts are as follows:
Small-Scale Non-Residential Entities:
An individual project system owner may not be awarded more than $500,000 in total awards through this program and the commercial-scale ASHP program in a fiscal year.
A complete list of equipment eligibility requirements is available in the Program Manual. Cooling only units and single-stage heat pumps are not eligible from rebates under this program.
After a project is completed, rebate applications and other required documents may be submitted via email. Applications must be submitted before the program deadline and within 60 days of project completion. For application details, see the Program Manual.
