Municipal Partnership

Earn awards when your community saves energy

Achieve awards when you meet energy-saving goals in your residential and small business communities.

The sponsors of Mass Save are seeking cities and towns interested in committing to set energy-saving goals in both residential and small business communities. Goals would include energy assessments and residential energy efficiency measures completed in a calendar year, starting January 1, 2021. Awards are awarded based on goals achieved by December 31, 2021.

By teaming up with their Mass Save sponsor, selected municipalities will receive energy efficiency expertise and marketing support. Together we will leverage the local knowledge, trusted relationships and experience from municipalities to increase awareness and measurable participation in energy efficiency offerings. All municipalities with at least one Environmental Justice neighborhood are encouraged to apply, especially communities looking to expand energy efficiency participation in the following community sectors:

  • Renters
  • Non-English speaking/Limited English Proficiency (LEP) residents
  • Moderate income residents (defined as 60-80% of state median income)
  • Small businesses

To Qualify

Municipalities in Berkshire Gas, Cape Light Compact, Eversource, Liberty Gas, National Grid, or Unitil service areas that use either natural gas, electric, or both, are eligible to apply. Municipal electric districts connected to natural gas through one of these sponsors are eligible as well.
