Mass Save Listening Sessions

Mass Dept. of Energy Resources (DOER) has scheduled a series of listening sessions, offering the public a chance to comment on the Mass Save program. This is a great time for the public to give input on ideas as well as concerns they have with the program.

Some problems noted by energy efficiency advocates include:
• Investor-owned utilities being administrators of the program
• Long wait times when you call them and to get an energy assessment
• Inconsistent quality of implementation of the weatherization measures they allow
• Poor marketing about the program to the general public
• Inconsistent information provided to homeowners about their programs, measures
• A cumbersome process from start to finish for homeowners. Each delay or lack of clarity becomes a barrier to implementation
• Lack of access to clear information on how the program is doing; how many received weatherization, insulation, new heating systems – and how much energy was saved, broken down by provider
