Income Eligible Services
Give your home an energy makeover.
Our Income Eligible Energy Services Program is designed to help you enjoy an energy efficient home that’s healthier, more comfortable, and more affordable for you and your family.
The first step is to schedule a no-cost remote home energy assessment where an Energy Specialist will speak to you by phone to complete an attic-to-basement evaluation, identifying areas where your home can save energy. These services are available whether your 1-4 unit home or apartment is heated with oil, natural gas, electricity, wood, coal, or propane.
Your Energy Specialist may mail the following products to you at no cost after completion of your remote assessment:
- LED energy saving light bulbs
- Water-saving faucet aerators and showerheads
- Energy-saving advanced power strips
If you have an old, inefficient dehumidifier and/or window air conditioner, you may be eligible for a new energy saving replacement product. Your Energy Specialist will explain more. You’ll be asked to leave the old appliance outside of your residence. We will pick it up and drop off your new dehumidifier and/or window air conditioner, without contact with you or your family.
At a later date, you may also qualify for additional no-cost energy saving improvements. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we are temporarily suspending all energy efficiency service activities that require home visits. Once this restriction is lifted, you may be eligible for:
- Replacement of your heating system
- Attic and wall insulation, weather stripping, and air-sealing of leaks
- A replacement refrigerator, freezer, and/or clothes washer if your current appliances are inefficient
- A programmable thermostat
National Grid is a proud sponsor of Mass Save, a collaborative of your local Massachusetts electric and national gas utilities and energy efficiency service providers.
If you live in a building with five or more units in which at least half of the residents meet income eligibility requirements, please apply for services through the LEAN Multifamily Program website, or call 1-617-348-6425.
