Certain municipal utilities in Massachusetts, in cooperation with Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Company (MMWEC), have begun offering energy efficiency incentives to their commercial and industrial customers. The MMWEC administers the programs on behalf of the municipal utilities. There are several programs offered, generally these include  commercial and industrial retrofit programs, lighting programs, and new construction programs.

It should be noted that municipal utilities may choose to customize programs and not all utilities will offer exactly the same incentives to their customers. Interested customers must review the program descriptions and application materials of their municipal utility provider for specific incentive information. Currently, the following municipal utilities offer commercial energy efficiency incentive programs through MMWEC:

  • Westfield Gas and Electric Department
  • Chicopee Electric Light Department
  • Ipswich Municipal Light Department 

MMWEC will maintain a list of participating utilities in the future, visit the program web site for more information.
