An all electric home in Massachusetts
The Sponsors of Mass Save are offering incentives up to $40,000 and technical assistance to support homeowners in the construction of new, all-electric homes.

All-electric homes use high-performance heat pump technology for heating, cooling, and water heating. They feature super-insulated building envelopes that minimize heat loss, leaks, and drafts to maximize energy efficiency.

They are also designed to increase comfort and indoor air quality, reduce energy and maintenance costs, and provide sustained home value over time.

Incentives depend on the number of individually metered dwelling units. For homes with two or more units, all units must meet the same level of eligibility requirements.

Incentive amounts are per building.

Home Type Level 1 Level 2
Single-family $15,000 $25,000
2-unit dwelling $17,500 $30,000
3-unit dwelling $20,000 $35,000
4-unit dwelling $22,500 $40,000
