The Decarbonization Pathways pilot seeks to develop and test a protocol for assessing small residential buildings to understand their current energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, which will result in customized decarbonization recommendations for homeowners to implement.
About the Decarbonization Pathways Pilot
Project Incentives, Assistance & Support
How It Works
Step 1: Orientation
Meet with your assigned Decarbonization Advisor and earn about the pilot expectations, opportunities and process.
Step 2: Documentation
Participants are asked to provide some documentation before the initial visit. We will need one year history of utility bills. Also, if you wish to receive incentives for the <120% AMI levels you will need to perform the Income Verification process.
Step 3: Assessment
Schedule and host the In-home Assessment performed by the Decarbonization Advisor.
Step 4: Contractors
Using our Decision-time-services, connect with contractors and get quotes for the Year1 projects on your Roadmap.
Step 5: Incentives
Work with your Decarbonization Advisor to submit the MassCEC Project Plan, reserving incentives for your projects.
Step 6: Projects
Schedule and complete the work.
Step 7: Final Visit
When all the work is done, schedule a final visit with the Decarbonization Advisor so that he can visually check the work, and discuss additional projects needed to get your home to 0 carbon emissions.
Step 8: Get Paid
Work with the Decarbonization Advisor to submit paperwork to receive incentives.
Step 9: Surveys
Complete surveys to provide us with valuable feedback on the pilot.
