New Construction (3 Stories or Less)

Design your home with energy efficiency from the start.

The Sponsors of Mass Save can help build energy efficiency into your new home from the ground up—lowering future energy and maintenance costs.

We offer financial incentives for new construction projects that exceed the Massachusetts Building Energy Code, and when possible, meet the ENERGY STAR® certification.

Homes earning the ENERGY STAR® label use 15-30% less energy than typical new homes, and even less when compared to most resale homes on the market today.

Through this program, you will work with a certified Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Rater to ensure your plans are setting your home up to use energy in the most efficient way possible, while saving you money.

 

In alignment with the Commonwealth’s climate policy and goals, the Sponsors of Mass Save are discontinuing incentives for homes that utilize equipment powered by natural gas, oil and propane. Projects that include natural gas, oil or propane equipment must be submitted for incentive processing by September 30, 2024, to receive incentives. Beginning July 1, 2024, new project registrations must meet the program’s new electrification requirements to qualify for incentives. See program Terms & Conditions or contact [email protected] for more information.

Incentives are determined by the amount of electric savings, fuel savings (natural gas, propane, or oil), and overall performance compared to the average new home in Massachusetts. This incentive structure is called our Pay-for-Savings approach.
