In Massachusetts today, there are a number of programs that help residents who qualify manage their energy costs. These programs include fuel assistance, utility discount rates and energy efficiency services. A group of the state’s utility companies have joined forces with The Massachusetts Association for Community Action (MASSCAP) and Low-Income Energy Affordability Network (LEAN) to promote the programs to qualifying households. The initiative is known as Energy Bucks.
FUEL ASSISTANCE Subsidies to reduce the price you pay for energy services
UTILITY DISCOUNT RATES Discounted rates that lower what you are charged for the energy you use
ENERGY EFFICIENCY SERVICES Weatherization services that make your house more energy efficient, thereby reducing your total energy needs
The Energy Bucks program is a unique and important program for Massachusetts residents. I will continue to advocate in Congress for critical heating assistance vital to the Commonwealth during these cold winter months. I fully support the efforts of Energy Bucksâ€™ sponsors, especially the hard work that local community action programs like Action for Boston Community Development do every day to ensure no one goes cold this winter.” U.S. SENATOR JOHN KERRY
