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.

NORWOOD LIGHT REBATES
NMLD is offering rebates on qualifying air source heat pump installations for customers who do not heat with natural gas. Natural gas customers are eligible for Mass Save’s residential air source heat pump program.
The NMLD air source heat pump rebate program is divided into two categories – whole-home and partial-home. Complete eligibility requirements can be found on the ENE NMLD webpage. Optional pre-approvals are highly recommended, especially for whole-home projects.
The qualifying equipment and rebate application process between NMLD’s program and the Mass Save program are different, so please be sure to familiarize yourself with eligibility requirements before installing any equipment.
In order to be eligible for a rebate through NMLD, the project must adhere to Abode’s review process.
There are five main steps to be aware of:
STEP 1: HOME ENERGY ASSESSMENT
A home energy assessment must be completed within three years prior to heat pump install.
STEP 2: 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 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.
STEP 5: WEATHERIZATION (Only Required for Whole-Home Heat Pump Rebate)
|Installation Type||Rebate Amount|
|Partial-Home System*||$1,250 per ton|
* Requires Home Energy Assessment within the last 3 years
** Requires signed whole-home attestation and completion of weatherization recommendations
