All-Electric Home Incentive

The Future of High-Performance, All-Electric Homes Starts Here

All-Electric Home Incentive

The Sponsors of Mass Save® have launched a new initiative to drive market transformation in residential new construction toward high-performing, all-electric homes. We are offering incentives up to $40,000, as well as technical assistance to support builders, developers, and homeowners in the construction of new homes that will use substantially less energy than code-built homes, while providing enhanced comfort and long-term resiliency.

What Is an All-Electric Home?

These homes use high-performance heat pump technology for heating, cooling, and water heating. They feature super-insulated building envelopes that minimize heat loss, leaks, and drafts to maximize energy efficiency. All-electric homes are designed to increase comfort and indoor air quality, reduce energy and maintenance costs, and provide sustained home value over time.

What Determines Incentive Eligibility?

To qualify for the All-Electric Home incentive, homes must meet the criteria of either Level 1 or Level 2 performance requirements. .

Component Level 1 Level 2
Energy savings percentage or HERS Index Score Savings ≥ 30% or HERS Index Score ≤ 45* Savings ≥ 50% or HERS Index Score ≤ 35*
Heat pump for space heating † Required Required
Heat pump for water heating Optional Required
All-electric cookware Required Required
Infiltration rate (ACH) ACH50 ≤ 1.5 ACH50 ≤ 1.0
Balanced ventilation systems (HRVs & ERVs) Required Required
Continuous envelope insulation ‡ Optional Required
Electric vehicle-ready checklist Required Required
*The HERS Index Score is calculated without factoring in on-site generation.
†Installed air-source heat pumps must be on the Mass Save Heat Pump Qualified Product List.
‡Level 2 requirement applies to whole home (i.e., slab, slab edge, foundation, exterior walls, and roof assemblies.

What Are the Incentives?

The incentives for high-performance, all-electric new construction homes depend on the number of individually metered dwelling units on the premise. For homes with two or more units, all units must meet the same level of eligibility requirements. Incentive amounts are per building.

How Do I Apply for Incentives?

You must work with a HERS (home energy rating system) rating company approved by the Sponsors of Mass Save. Your HERS Rater must enroll the project before construction begins and conduct all the mandatory inspections and verifications of the home to ensure that you have met all eligibility requirements.

Home Type Level 1 Level 2
Single-family $15,000 $25,000
2-unit dwelling $17,500 $30,000
3-unit dwelling $20,000 $35,000
4-unit dwelling $22,500 $40,000
