Residential High-Rise New Construction Incentives and Rebates

for multi-family buildings (4 stories or more)

The Sponsors of Mass Save® promotes the new construction of energy efficient residential multi-family high-rise buildings in Massachusetts. Monetary incentives and rebates are available to participants who complete projects that meet all requirements.


How Incentives Are Calculated

Incentives and rebates are available for both residential in-unit and common area energy efficiency measures. Incentives are awarded based on annual site energy saved. Incentives are determined by the amount of electric savings,  natural gas fuel savings, and overall performance compared to the program-provided energy model.

Participants are strongly encouraged to contact us during the schematic or design development phase to receive the maximum support and incentives available. If there is no involvement before construction begins, the project may not be eligible for support.

Our dedicated Account Managers will guide you throughout the process to ensure you receive support to build into your project. Account Managers will provide ongoing technical support throughout construction including optional design charrettes in order to increase efficiency beyond our Baseline. Participants must provide detailed project information outlining all qualifying energy efficiency equipment and measures being installed as well as plans, specifications, and approved submittals.
