HOME EFFICIENCY INCENTIVE PROGRAM
CEL is happy to offer incentives, and assist you with the identification and installation of the most cost effective measures recommended in a home energy audit through the Home Energy Loss Prevention Services (HELPS) Program. Please call 888-333-7525 and schedule an Energy Audit before having your contractor start your project(s). We encourage you to proceed with the installation of those efficiency measures listed on your HELPS Home Energy Report that best suit your energy needs.

General rule for cost-effective home efficiency
Insulate and air-seal first. (Ask the auditor for a list of firms providing air-sealing services.)
Chicopee Electric Light can reimburse you 50% of installed cost, up to $500 per project (maximum of $2,000 per customer, per year), for the following:
Blower Door Test and Air Sealing
Qualified Energy Star Rated Heating Systems
**Self-installed project(s) are not eligible for rebate***
After the measure(s) installation, contact HELPS at 888-333-7525 to schedule a post installation inspection. The inspector will conduct a site visit and complete the required inspection form. The inspection must be performed before applying for the incentive.
The program will run until the designated funds are depleted, at CEL's discretion and without further notice.
