Renew Boston is an innovative public-private partnership to boost energy efficiency and alternative energy services for Boston residents and businesses. Renew Boston partners with NStar, National Grid, community-based non-profits like Mass Energy, and contractors like Next Step Living that are certified to implement energy efficiency measures through the Mass Save program. This network of energy efficiency providers assists qualified Boston tenants, homeowners, and landlords in making energy improvements to their homes and properties.
During a Renew Boston Home Energy Assessment, professional Energy Advisers walk through your home from basement to attic. If you need them, your Adviser may install water-saving devices, a smart power strip, and high-efficiency light bulbs. Eligible property owners may receive 75% off – up to $2,000 off – for insulation and air sealing. For triple-deckers and duplexes where all eligible units are weatherized, incentives include 90% off insulation, up to $3,000 per apartment! That’s a great deal.
The City’s Office of Environmental & Energy Services established Renew Boston in order to achieve ambitious citywide goals for saving energy, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and creating green jobs.
