Residential High-Rise New Construction Incentives

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. Incentives are available for new building construction that meets our eligibility requirements.*

 

How Incentives Are Calculated

Incentives 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 and natural gas fuel savings as modeled by account managers from the building’s energy efficiency measures as confirmed in the construction documents and compared to an approved baseline.

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, you may not be eligible for enrollment.

Our dedicated Account Managers will guide you throughout the process to ensure you receive support to build qualifying energy saving measures into your new construction. 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 information including plans, specifications, and approved submittals.
