The Baker-Polito Adminstration announced the launch of Commonwealth Energy Tool for Savings (energyCENTS), a web platform for the Commonwealth’s ratepayers to search available energy saving opportunities.  That’s right – DOER is providing Massachusetts residents and businesses a single entry point for energy rebates, incentives, loans, and tax credits available from MassSave®, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and other organizations, like the federal government.

Massachusetts is the first state in the nation to launch a platform where you can search for both energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities by zip code.  Through energyCENTS, residents and businesses will find information on home energy assessments and solar financing to electric vehicles and the latest energy opportunities.  DOER developed this user-friendly tool with you in mind. We wanted to make sure everyone in Massachusetts could easily search for tailored opportunities in one place.

The easiest way to get started is by visiting the energyCENT’s website.  Try your zip code, select a few categories or keywords and see your options.  You can click on the opportunities that come up and take you directly to where the incentives are available or you can download all the incentives and visit them at your own pace.  The exciting piece of this user-friendly tool; all the links direct you to the sponsoring entity’s web page for the item you’ve selected.  This means that one click gets you to the specific energy incentive or directly to the energy rebate application.  You can learn about the energy opportunities available to you and you can save time navigating between the energy efficiency and renewable sectors.

Next time you’re with your friends talking about the latest Wi-Fi thermostat, ask them if they’ve visited www.mass.gov/energyCENTS for rebates opportunities.
