OPTIONAL STEP 3
Optionally, your contractor submits a pre-approval project application to Abode to verify equipment rebate eligibility.
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.

HINGHAM MUNICIPAL LIGHT REBATES
*NOTE: Customers who heat their homes with gas now qualify for Mass Save heat pump rebates and are not eligible for this rebate through HMLP.
The qualifying equipment and rebate application process between HMLP’s program and the Mass Save program are different, so please be sure to familiarize yourself with the eligibility requirements before installing any equipment.
For non-gas-heating customers, in order to be eligible for a rebate through HMLP, 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 Hingham’s Building Department by calling 781-741-1420.
STEP 3: INSTALL QA FORM
STEP 4: REBATE APPLICATION
The online rebate application must be completed by the homeowner or contractor following install. The form will ask for utility account information and will also require a paid invoice and the installed system’s AHRI certificate(s), all of which can be obtained from the contractor.
