The Baker-Polito administration selected the town of Winchester to participate in the 2019 HeatSmart Massachusetts program. A partnership between the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, HeatSmart Mass is modeled after the Solarize Mass program, which Winchester was a pilot community for in 2011.
HeatSmart Mass uses a group purchasing model to help drive down the cost of installation and to increase deployment of residential and small-scale commercial installations of clean heating and cooling technologies including air-source heat pumps, ground-source heat pumps, modern wood heating, and solar hot water. Arlington and Winchester will jointly promote all four technologies and will each receive grant funding to help publicize the program. The other communities selected for participation in the 2019 HeatSmart Mass program are Belmont, Hudson and Stow (joint program), and Marshfield. (read more)
