How it Works

On hot summer days, when the grid is stressed, it is important to conserve energy. Reducing energy at these times reduces energy costs and decreases pollution.

MassSave has made it easy for you to conserve energy at these peak times. After you enroll your qualified thermostat, MassSave will automatically send a signal to your thermostat to precool your home 2 °F before the peak event and increase your thermostat setting 4 °F during the peak event.

 

Here is some information on when peak events may occur:

  • June-September
  • Weekdays
  • Non-holidays
  • Between 2-7pm

There are typically about 15 peak events every summer, and each event lasts 3 hours.


You can opt out of a peak event anytime by changing your thermostat setting.


You can opt out of most or even all peak events. However, we may unenroll you from the program for the following year if the program is not a good fit for you.

 

The thermostats supported by this program are:

  • Building36
  • ecobee
  • Emerson
  • Honeywell (including Lyric)
  • Lux
  • Nest
  • Radio Thermostat
  • vivint.SmartHome

Earn a $25 instant incentive, and a $20 annual incentive for every thermostat connected to a central air conditioner.

FAQs

 

What is a central air conditioner?

A central air conditioner is an air conditioner that cools an entire (or at least the majority) of a home or small business. This includes both ducted and ductless systems. Window air conditioners are not central air conditioners. Heating systems that do not cool, are not central air conditioners.


To participate in this program, your thermostat must be connected to a central air conditioner.

 

How can I find a Wi-Fi thermostat?

There are many options for purchasing a supported Wi-Fi thermostat.


For Homeowners, a supported Wi-Fi Thermostat can be purchased at:


  • Your local hardware stores
  • Online retailers, like Amazon
  • Through the MassSave website.
  • If eligible, through a MassSave energy assessment.
