BELMONT LIGHT REBATES
As of April 1, 2022, any applications submitted for pre-approval with natural gas as the original heating fuel source will be eligible for an incentive of $350 per ton, with a cap of $2,500. Any gas customers that submit for pre-approval prior to April 1, 2022 will receive full incentive amount as previously stated. Rebates are also available through the Mass Save program for customers with gas heating service.
In order to be eligible for a rebate through Belmont Light, the project must adhere to Abode’s review process.
There are four main steps to be aware of:
STEP 1: PRE-APPROVAL FORM
The Pre-Approval form must be completed by the contractor prior to installation. This form includes details on the home and selected equipment. Abode will review the proposal within three business days and either return it with approval or request additional information from the contractor. The project must receive pre-approval prior to install.
STEP 2: ELECTRICAL PERMITS
The contractor must file for the relevant electrical permit(s) through the town of Belmont. Permits are requested through the Town of Belmont's Building Department.
STEP 3: INSTALL QA FORM
The Install QA form must be completed after install by the contractor, typically on the last day of install while still at the job site as the form requires photos of the installed equipment.
STEP 4: REBATE APPLICATION
