Join the Melrose Energy ChallengE

Reduce energy, save money, and be a part of lowering your community’s carbon footprint – it all starts with a no-cost Mass Save® Home Energy Assessment.

The City Partners with HomeWorks Energy

On Earth Day 2022, the City of Melrose launched the Net Zero Action Plan, outlining community efforts to reach net zero by 2050. Throughout that planning process, the City learned that two-thirds of the community’s greenhouse gas emissions come from heating, cooling, and powering Melrose homes and buildings.

The City created the Melrose Energy Challenge to encourage community members to lower emissions and save money. To help residents, Melrose has partnered with HomeWorks Energy, a Mass Save partner.

HomeWorks Energy will help homeowners and renters with no-cost Home Energy Assessments, weatherization work, and offer guidance through offers from the Mass Save Sponsors like 75-100% off insulation, 100% off air sealing, and 0% financing for upgrades.

Together, we can make Melrose sustainable and enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency!

What to Expect from a Home Energy Assessment

We’ll work with your utility provider to get approval for the Home Energy Assessment. If we need more information from you for the approval, we’ll call you within 24 hours.


Your Home Energy Specialist will be at your home at your scheduled time and will begin your Assessment. The assessment typically takes between 2-3 hours.

You will learn how your home consumes and loses energy and you’ll receive a custom home energy report, along with other recommendations to save like insulation or air sealing upgrades.
