The Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Company (MMWEC) provides the NextZero Program to twenty-one municipal utilities in Massachusetts.
NextZero offers a home energy audit, appliance and lighting rebates, air conditioner and heat pump rebates, and other incentives for the implementation of measures recommended in an audit. Participating utilities customize the suite of rebates provided to customers in order to help those customers implement measures recommended in the energy audit. In addition, NextZero offers utilities the opportunity to offer rebates for installing solar photovoltaic systems.
The following municipalities offer HELPS rebates: Ashburnham, Belmont, Boylston, Chicopee, Groton, Holden Holyoke, Hull, Ipswich, Mansfield, Marblehead, Paxton, Peabody, Princeton, Russell, Shrewsbury, South Hadley, Sterling, Templeton, Wakefield, and West Boylston.
