New Home Construction

New Home Incentive Program

The Sponsors of Mass Save promote the construction of new energy efficient homes in Massachusetts. Financial incentives are offered for residential new construction projects that exceed the base Massachusetts building energy code. Program eligibility requirements and incentives available are subject to change and may vary each year.

Is Your Project Eligible?

Residential new construction projects that are three stories or less are eligible to participate in the New Home Incentive Program if they are located within a Sponsor’s of Mass Save’s service territory in Massachusetts. Projects that are master-metered natural gas heated may be eligible to participate in the High-Rise Incentive Program. Enhanced incentives are also available for multi-family homes that achieve Passive House accreditation. For more info on Passive House incentives, click here.

How Incentives Are Calculated

Incentive eligibility is dependent on whether the home meets the minimum energy savings requirements. The amount of fuel savings, electric savings (propane, natural gas, or oil), and the home’s overall performance compared to the average new home in Massachusetts will determine how much the incentive check will be.
