Contact the Heat Pump Specialist for program information and to learn more about the benefits of heat pump adoption.
Work with a participating contractor to determine if a heat pump is right for you.
OPTIONAL STEP 3
Optionally, your contractor submits a pre-approval project application to Abode to verify equipment rebate eligibility. This step is highly recommended for whole-home heat pump projects.
Your new heating and cooling system is installed.
Your contractor submits a post-install form to Abode with documentation of the completed install. We review the submission for install quality and rebate eligibility.
The rebate is processed and customers enjoy clean, efficient cooling and heating.

BELMONT LIGHT REBATES
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 (OPTIONAL)
Optionally, the Pre-Approval form can be completed by the contractor prior to installation. Once you have decided on a contractor and heat pump proposal to move forward with, if you would like to confirm eligibility for rebates prior to install, your installer can submit the Optional Pre-Approval Form. This form includes equipment information for the proposed heat pump system(s). Abode will verify whether the equipment meets the efficiency requirements to qualify for the MLP's rebate.
If you have multiple proposals and have not decided yet on a single proposal, rather than submitting multiple pre-approvals, we ask that you instead submit a "Quote Review" to Abode; see above for consultation offerings to submit quotes.
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
STEP 4: REBATE APPLICATION
