Energy Saving Rebates and Programs

HOME ENERGY ASSESSMENTS

In partnership with GMLD, Energy New England (ENE) provides no-cost Home Energy Assessments for GMLD’s residential customers. Our highly trained and experienced Residential Energy Advisors will assess your home’s energy efficiency to identify heating, lighting, weatherization, and rebate opportunities that can save you money on your utility bills. 

ENE’s Energy Advisor conducts an in-person or virtual walk-through of your home, inputting information into our energy-efficiency software to create a report for you that analyzes your home’s energy usage, identifies home improvement projects that can lower your energy costs, and links to GMLD’s rebates and incentives.
