What We Offer

This Energy Efficiency program offers a no-cost energy assessment of your existing facility or an analysis of the plans for your new facility to identify potential energy saving opportunities. The evaluation examines existing and/or potential natural gas equipment and technologies.

Columbia Gas of Massachusetts will pay 50 percent of the qualified installed cost, up to a maximum of $50,000 per master meter.
