Malden taking action to help homeowners and renters save energy

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  The City of Malden is taking action to help residents save energy and money this winter and all year long. The City has partnered with HomeWorks Energy, a Mass Save® partner, to give all homeowners and renters the opportunity to be more energy-efficient, helping the community become more sustainable and resilient.

  The City has invited HomeWorks Energy to knock on doors around Malden to help spread the word about the benefits of energy efficiency and assist residents with accessing available Mass Save rebates and incentives for their homes, including no-cost Home Energy Assessments. During this Assessment, an Energy Specialist will review your energy use, look around your home or business and provide recommendations on how you can save energy. City-approved canvassers will be wearing official blue partner vests and will never ask for payment information or to view energy bills. Awareness efforts will begin on January 5, 2023, and they will continue over the next year to ensure that all city residents could get these savings.

  “I urge all Maldonians to schedule an energy assessment at their earliest convenience,” says Malden Mayor Gary Christenson. “Upgrades through the Mass Save program are one of the fastest and most impactful ways to reduce your energy use this winter.”

  Homeowners and renters could access benefits like no-cost sealing of air leaks, 75-100% off recommended insulation improvements, up to $15,000 in heat pump rebates and 0% financing opportunities for energy upgrades. Drafts and air leaks can account of up to 30% of a home’s heating and cooling costs, so no-cost sealing can have a significant and immediate impact on resident’s energy bills. Additional energy saving products – like programmable thermostats, water-saving devices and advanced power strips – can be mailed to you directly for free after the no-cost Home Energy Assessment.

  This program is part of the City’s Green Malden project, an all-hands-on-deck approach to combatting climate change. Residents interested in learning more about how the City can help them to be more energy-efficient, or who want to learn more about the City’s ongoing climate response work, can visit www.CityofMalden.org/Green-Malden.
