HeatSmart Update

September 30

We're moving into our 6th month of HeatSmart Hudson-Stow, and we're making great progress! We've had over 160 residents sign up for site visits so far with many more scheduled. Nearly 30 residents have made the switch to heat pumps and are in ready to save on their heating bills as we enter the heating season. Now is as good of a time as ever to take advantage of the special $1,000 HeatSmart bill credit from Hudson Light and Power, as well as the 0% interest loans and rebates from the Home MVP program.

With so much interest, the HeatSmart team has decided to extend the sign-up deadline of the program to November 30, 2019. Get started today with a no-cost, no-commitment site visit, and sign a contract by December 31, 2019 to take advantage of our limited-time pricing.

Not sure about what heat pump solution is right for you? Come to one of our two Public Information Forums on October 3 in Stow and October 5 in Hudson. We’ve also planned a whole series of Open Houses on Sunday afternoons through September and October.


Cleaner, smarter heating and cooling can save you money and add comfort to your home or business! 

The towns of Hudson and Stow have been selected to participate in the next round of HeatSmart Mass, the latest community clean energy initiative supported by the state, our respective town governments, and our municipal utility.

HeatSmart Hudson-Stow is a community-led effort promoting air and ground source (geothermal) heat pumps. Heat pumps can help residents save money, improve home comfort, and conserve energy , while reducing green house gas emissions.

After a competitive vetting process, the Hudson-Stow team has selected Boucher Energy Systems in partnership with Bill Wenzel Heating and Air Conditioning for their depth of technical experience and longstanding commitment to top-notch customer service.

The HeatSmart Hudson-Stow program and our special offer will run until the end of the year. Come meet our team and our selected installers, learn about heat pumps, and have your questions answered at one of our "Meet the Installer" forums.

Want to see a heat pump in action? Visit one of our open houses and speak with the owner. Contact us at info@HeatSmartHS.org to learn more about open houses!

Heat pumps efficiently move heat in and out of a building instead of burning fossil fuels to provide heat. HeatSmart Hudson-Stow is offering two types of heat pump systems that can provide both heating and cooling: air source heat pumps, which use the outdoor air as a source of heat (like air conditioners that can also run in reverse to heat even if the temperature outside is below zero!) and ground source (or geothermal) heat pumps, which use heat from the sun captured in the ground as a source of heat.

Heat pumps are lower-cost alternatives to fossil fuel-based heating that also offer cooling and home comfort benefits while reducing your carbon footprint.

Hudson Light and Power is offering a special expanded incentive in the form of an account credit of $1,000 for both types of heat pumps. Additional programs from the MA Dept. of Energy Resources could also offer additional incentives and 0% interest financing for installing a heat pump.
