HeatSmart Update

December 1

Happy December from the HeatSmart Hudson-Stow team! With Thanksgiving and our enrollment deadline behind us, there's still time to act on your HeatSmart quote, take advantage of the special $1,000 HeatSmart bill credit from Hudson Light and Power and 0% financing and rebates from the Home MVP Program, and start saving on your heating bill this winter.

To help you with making the best decision for your home and family, the HeatSmart Hudson-Stow will be offering four more open houses in December and January so you can see and feel a heat pump in action and get your questions answered by residents who have made the switch. Click here to sign up for an open house.

The Hudson-Stow team is also inviting you to call in on two nights in December to get support with reviewing your quote and answering any questions you have. We'll be joined by a heat pump expert from Cadmus, an international energy consulting firm, to give you a second opinion on your quote and questions. Sign up for a timeslot here, and let us know what you need support with so that we can get you the right answers to your questions promptly.

Didn't get a chance to sign up before our November 30th deadline? Feel free to submit your information below, and our installers may still reach out to you to schedule a no-cost site assessment—or reach out to the coaches at info@HeatSmartHS.org.


Not sure about moving forward with your quote?

Come to one of our open houses or schedule some time to call-in and speak with a third-party heat pump expert!



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 January. 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!

Questions? Want to get involved? Come meet us at one of our upcoming open house events or reach out our coaches Jeanette (for Hudson) and Sharon (for Stow) at info@HeatSmartHS.org.

Can't make an open house or want one-on-one support with your quote? Reach out to us by email with any questions you have or sign up for a "call-in" to get your questions answered by the team and a third-party heat pump expert. 



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.
