In Massachusetts today, there are a number of programs that help residents who qualify manage their energy costs. These programs include fuel assistance, utility discount rates and energy efficiency services. A group of the state’s utility companies have joined forces with The Massachusetts Association for Community Action (MASSCAP) and Low-Income Energy Affordability Network (LEAN) to promote the programs to qualifying households. The initiative is known as Energy Bucks.
- Fuel Assistance – Subsidies to reduce the price you pay for energy services
- Utility Discount Rates – Discounted rates that lower what you are charged for the energy you use
- Energy Efficiency Services - Weatherization services that make your house more energy efficient, thereby reducing your total energy needs
