Are you a small business owner in Needham? Do you want to lower your utility bills, and help the environment by saving energy? Mass Save, in partnership with Eversource, can perform a no-cost energy assessment of your mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems to determine how you can save money and energy. And the best part is that Eversource will pay up to 95%* of the cost of the materials and labor for the installation of the energy saving equipment. The following are examples of the type of improvements that can be funded under Mass Save’s Small Business Energy Efficiency Program:
- Installation of LED light bulbs and/or lighting fixtures
- Lighting controls
- HVAC System Upgrades
- Programmable Wifi Thermostats
- New Motors and Drives
- Insulation and Air Sealing
- High Efficiency Water Heaters
- Refrigeration Controls
- Shower Heads and Aerators

And while the energy assessment is no-cost, the program is funded by the “Conservation” charge on the Eversource bills of all
Business customers, so don’t miss out – take advantage of this cost-saving program. Learn more about the assessment process.
The VFW Hall in Needham recently took advantage of the Small Business Energy Efficiency Program with AECOM, Mass Save’s subcontractor for Needham businesses and non-profits. After a no-cost energy assessment, which can be in-person or virtual, the following energy-saving improvements were made:
- All exterior and interior lighting was upgraded to LED technology
- Energy conservation devices were installed on the hot water system to save gas
The total cost of the work was $17,600, with 100% of that cost paid by Eversource. Savings on the VFW’s annual utility bills are estimated to be $5,000/year. Bill Byrnes, Property Manager, spearheaded the project for the VFW, which was completed in March 2021. Bill and the VFW are very happy with how it worked out!
