WEBSTER – The town of Webster is one of four communities in Massachusetts named by National Grid to participate in the company’s 2019 Community Initiative and receive funding to support and implement energy efficiency outreach.

According to National Grid, Webster — along with Concord, Newburyport and Somerville — will each receive a portion of $40,000 in incentive grants to meet each town’s energy efficient outreach goals and provide energy assessments and residential energy efficiency measures.

“We’re happy to continue the Community Initiative this year to help promote, and demonstrate on a local level, how small changes can help reduce the amount of energy used in a home,” said Marcy Reed, President, Massachusetts and EVP U.S. Policy and Social Impact, National Grid.  “If residents implement these measures, not only will their community win the award, but each measure promoted by our initiative can add up to cost savings while helping to ensure a sustainable future for our families in the communities where we live and work.”

Webster Goals are outlined here: 

  • 276 completed residential assessments
  • 71 completed air sealing jobs
  • 70 completed insulation installations
  • 68 completed heating system installations
  • 34 completed hot water heater installations
  • 55 refrigerators/freezers recycled
  • 24 Wi-Fi thermostats incentivized
  • 33 demand response participants
  • For a total potential award of $7,811.91

Grants are awarded based on the progress towards goals achieved by the end of the year.

In addition to assisting communities in identifying individualized goals, National Grid will provide the Webster community with support throughout the duration of the initiative including:

  • Sharing monthly progress reports.
  • Conducting monthly calls with municipalities to learn best practices.
  • Developing and printing customized outreach materials (brochures, signs).
  • Sending campaign materials to customers (email, bill inserts).
  • Providing support for local events (materials, staffing where available).
