National Grid: recommends energy efficiency ratings in anticipation of colder weather

WALTHAM, Mass. – As children head back to school and the weather gets cooler on the horizon, National Grid wants customers to take control of their home’s energy efficiency and schedule a home energy assessment in person or virtual to find ways to save on energy use and bills.

With the No-Charge Home Energy Assessment, National Grid connects customers with an energy specialist who will create a personalized energy report and provide free energy-saving products, such as advanced power strips , low-flow showerheads and programmable thermostats for installation in a home.

“With winter energy rates set to rise this winter creating challenges for many families, now is the time to do an energy assessment,” said John Isberg, vice president of customer solutions for National Grid New England. “Customers who get an assessment can put measures in place that can save them money on their energy bills as our New England weather gets colder.”

Based on the Home Energy Assessment Report, customers may also be eligible for:

  • 75% or more on approved insulation upgrades and targeted air tightness at no charge, reducing energy costs and improving the efficiency of heating and cooling systems.

  • Rebates of up to $2,750 on qualifying energy-efficient heating, cooling and water heater equipment

  • Information on how to qualify for a 0% interest rate loan for eligible energy retrofits

The value of home weatherization installation for National Grid customers via a Home Energy Assessment averages over $4,000.

Massachusetts customers are eligible for assessments if they live in a one to four unit home.

Interested customers can call 1-866-527-SAVE (7283). More information is available at:
