State Encourages Switching to Cleaner Heat Sources

For the first time, the Mass Save program will offer incentive programs for fuel switching – specifically targeting homeowners heating with oil or propane to make the switch to a more affordable fuel and more efficient technologies like air source heat pumps.

The Department of Public Utilities issued an order approving the 2019-2021 statewide energy efficiency plan which sets energy savings goals and budgets for the Mass Save program offered by utility companies.

The plan for the next three years also includes active demand reduction programs intended to help control energy use during the most expensive days and hours of the year. For example, National Grid proposed a program that would allow its customers with electric vehicles to pause or shift vehicle charging during peak demand.
