Lower Your Year-Round Energy Costs
Norwood is dedicated to helping its residents save money on energy costs and make their homes more comfortable.
The town has partnered with HomeWorks Energy, a Mass Save® partner, to help residents make their homes more efficient, starting with a no-cost assessment.
During your assessment, a Home Energy Specialist will review your home’s energy performance and show you how to save money and energy year-round.
Benefits of an assessment include a no-cost custom home energy report, 100% off sealing air leaks in your home, 75-100% off new insulation, up to $16,000 in heat pump rebates, 0% financing, and no-cost energy-saving items such as programmable thermostats and water-saving devices.
One of the largest sources of emissions is our homes and we’re calling on Norwood residents to join us as we make our community sustainable.
Norwood is participating in the Mass Save® Community First Partnership, sponsored locally by National Grid, to increase participation in energy efficiency programs.
To learn about additional Mass Save incentives like energy assessments for small businesses and multi-family (5+ unit) buildings as well as rebates for high-efficiency heating and cooling system upgrades, including heat pumps, visit masssave.com/nsw.
Energy Reduction Goals & Progress
Over the next year, Norwood aims to facilitate 97 insulation upgrades, 54 HVAC system upgrades, and a substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
