More information on the rebate

The Commonwealth Solar Hot Water Program offers rebates for solar hot water (also known as solar thermal) systems that serve residential, commercial, non-profit, and publicly owned buildings. MassCEC provides this funding to reduce the upfront cost of installing a solar hot water system.

Residential Rebate Information

The Commonwealth Solar Hot Water Program (CSHW) offers rebates for residential solar hot water projects at single-family and multi-family (up to 4 units) homes. (Grants up to $3,500)

“The renewable energy fund, known as the Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust Fund, is supported by a non-bypassable surcharge of $0.0005 per kilowatt-hour (0.5 mill/kWh), imposed on customers of all investor-owned electric utilities and competitive municipal utilities in Massachusetts.”dsireusa.org

What does this mean? It means, companies such as Nstar or National Grid charge customers an extra $0.0005 per Kwh. This cipro money is pooled in the Renewable Energy Trust (Trust). Towns who have Municipal Light Plants are not eligible unless they pay into the Trust. Currently, there are five towns who pay into the trust Ashburnham MA, Holden MA, Holyoke MA, Russell MA, & Templeton MA. These five towns are eligible to apply for the Mass CEC Rebate.

Commercial Rebate Information

The Commonwealth Solar Hot Water Program (CSHW) offers rebates for solar hot water (solar thermal) feasibility studies. Feasibility Study applications may request up to $5,000 for a consultant to help a commercial-scale building owner assess the potential benefits of installing a solar hot water system.

Construction rebates are calculated based on entity type (public/non-profit, or private), the number of collectors installed and the SRCC thermal performance rating of the collectors. The system also may be eligible to receive additional funding if eligible Massachusetts manufactured components are used, or if the home was affected by a natural disaster. Construction applications must include a Feasibility Study that assesses all of the items listed in the scope below. Once the installation is complete, MassCEC can reimburse the system owner or the contractor for the amount of the rebate.
