Patrick Administration Outlines Winter Energy Resources for Massachusetts Residents

Massachusetts Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) Secretary Maeve Vallely Bartlett recently announced a $5.1 million investment to expand energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities for the Commonwealth’s residents as the winter season approaches. The Patrick Administration also encouraged Massachusetts residents to take advantage of existing programs to reduce energy waste and help manage energy costs.

“The Commonwealth offers a wide range of robust programs to help residents and businesses control their energy costs through efficiency measures,” said Secretary Bartlett. “The Patrick Administration wants to make sure everyone is aware of what is available to them and, in light of recent price spikes, provide them with additional support.”

The newly expanded resources will be available later this year and are in addition to existing services provided through Mass Save® and ongoing programs through the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC), aimed at reducing residential energy use and managing costs. The funding for these programs has been allocated by the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) through Alternative Compliance Payments and Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative auction proceeds.
