The Commonwealth Solar Hot Water Commercial Program offers grants through a non-competitive application process for SHW pre-design studies and construction projects at multi-family (5 units or greater), community and commercial-scale buildings.
At this time, MassCEC is pleased to begin accepting pre-design study grant and construction rebate applications. Pre-Design Study Grant applications may request up to $10,000 to help building owners assess the potential benefits of installing a solar hot water system. Construction rebates are calculated based on entity type (public or private), the number of collectors installed and the SRCC thermal performance rating of the collectors. In addition to the base rebate, you may be eligible to receive additional funding if your system has eligible Massachusetts manufactured components or if your building was affected by the June 1, 2011 tornado in the western part of Massachusetts.
