Complete a home energy assessment through your municipal utility to determine whether there is opportunity for weatherization in your home.

Work with a participating contractor to identify and complete specific weatherization improvements.

Your contractor submits a virtual quality assurance form to Abode. We review the submission and approve it remotely if possible, or complete an in-home inspection and work with the contractor to resolve any work issues if needed.

STEP 4

Submit the weatherization rebate application through your MLP.

STEP 5

The rebate is processed and customers enjoy a more comfortable, efficient home.

MGED REBATES

MGED provides no-cost home energy assessments and rebates for eligible weatherization improvements.

In order to be eligible for a rebate through MGED, the project must adhere to the eligibility verification and quality assurance review process.

REBATE RULES & REQUIREMENTS

  • Weatherization opportunity must be determined by a recent MGED/Energy New England energy audit before installation.
  • No added room or space (renovation or new construction) that adds to the home’s heating load will be eligible unless the new load is neutralized by increased insulation/air sealing in the other areas. This will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and should be approved by Abode & MGED before weatherization work commences.
  • Work must be started and completed from January 1st to December 31st, for this rebate cycle. Work completed in the following year will be eligible for that year’s rebate offering, if available.
  • Work can be done by the homeowner, a contractor, or a combination of the two. Where applicable, the contractor must be licensed for the work performed. See below for a list of participating contractors.
