Worcester Energy Program’s Residential Rebate Pilot

Tired of being too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer, all while paying high utility bills? You might qualify to receive up to $5,000+ in rebates (even more for 2 - 4 family homes) for qualifying energy improvement projects that will increase the comfort and value of your home.

The City of Worcester is providing rebates to qualifying Worcester residential homeowners of 1, 2, 3 and 4-family buildings for energy efficiency and renewable installation work! The Residential Rebate Pilot is designed to help defray the costs for homeowners who implement energy efficient upgrades to their homes, while also demonstrating energy efficiency gains that result from the completion of the approved efficiency projects.

***Please note that our program has changed. Effective March 3, 2014, instead of previously required HERS (Home Energy Rating System) tests, we will require an Energy Performance Scorecard as part of the application process. Please read the Program Guide prior to starting the work for more information about how to qualify and apply.
