It’s a classic win-win situation — Green Needham Collaborative has been awarded a grant from NSTAR to make Needham greener and more energy efficient. The goal is to get more Needham residents to take advantage of NSTAR’s no-cost home energy assessments and to follow up with efficiency upgrades. Green Needham is honored to be selected to take part in this pilot program, which gives community organizations a chance to promote NSTAR’s energy efficiency programs. In fact, the more energy that is saved in Needham, the more bonus money is given to Green Needham by NSTAR to help us further our work for sustainability.
The NSTAR/MassSave home energy assessments have greatly improved and are available no matter what kind of fuel is used for heating. They now include detailed energy-saving recommendations, air-sealing in targeted areas, and in some cases, follow-up blower door tests to find air leaks.
Rebates for equipment and weatherization are more generous than ever. For example, NSTAR pays 75% of the cost of insulation and recommended energy efficiency improvements up to $2,000. Homeowners can expect lower energy bills, a more comfortable home, and the knowledge that they helped protect the environment by lowering their carbon footprint.
Please call 855-838-7817 today to set up your no-cost home energy assessment. This is a dedicated phone number for Needham residents.

After taking the challenge to reduce my energy consumption by 10%, I contacted NSTAR energy program and scheduled a home visit. . . . I spent a much more comfortable winter this year. I have highly recommended this program to anyone who will listen. I am a very satisfied customer. – Local Realtor
