THE SPONSORS OF MASS SAVE® ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP WITH REWIRING AMERICA
Alliance supports common goal: simplifying the process for customers navigating decarbonization programs
BOSTON (August 1, 2023) – The Sponsors of Mass Save today announced their partnership with Rewiring America, an electrification nonprofit focused on electrifying homes, businesses and communities. Coming together to achieve a shared goal, the Mass Save Sponsors and Rewiring America are co-developing resources for customers seeking to electrify their homes, highlighting various Mass Save and federal decarbonization programs.
In partnership, the Sponsors of Mass Save and Rewiring America will disseminate information for customers to learn how to take advantage of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), the 2022 federal law designed to advance clean energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions through support for investment in domestic energy production, energy efficiency and beneficial electrification. The Mass Save Sponsors will work alongside the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources to develop programs and offerings that utilize IRA funds.
"The Sponsors are looking forward to expanding our partnership network to include Rewiring America and the important work they do to help all of our customers access these critical programs," said Tilak Subrahmanian, Vice President of Energy Efficiency and Electric Mobility at Eversource. "As we empower residents and businesses to make energy efficient upgrades, we're committed to providing them with the resources to make it as simple as possible."
"We are so proud to join forces with Rewiring America and take another step forward in reaching our goal of net zero in Massachusetts," said Christopher Porter, Director of Customer Energy Management at National Grid. "Customers who want to be part of the change may not know where to start and that's why this partnership is so critical. Going forward, participation in electrification and decarbonization programs will become a process that everyone can take advantage of and easily navigate."
"We are thrilled to work alongside the Sponsors of Mass Save to reach new communities in Massachusetts who want to increase their energy savings and improve home comfort," said Keishaa Austin, Head of Community at Rewiring America. "We look forward to increasing program accessibility in Massachusetts for both residents and businesses, and help them work towards a cleaner, more electric future."
Leading the charge, Massachusetts is one of the most energy-efficient states in the country. The Sponsors of Mass Save focus on electrification, workforce development and equity, making the future of clean energy accessible to all. Through services, incentives, rebates, trainings, and more, the Mass Save Sponsors provide a variety of opportunities for residents and businesses to do their part in creating a more sustainable future.
Rewiring America's purpose is to make electrification simple, measurable and inevitable. Through data and analysis, Rewiring America tells stories of electric transformation, inspiring customers to decarbonize and ensuring that no community is left behind in the process. From rewiring schools to homes and more, its commitment to healthier homes, cleaner air and energy savings will aid the Sponsors in reaching net zero in Massachusetts.
