Framingham Saves Energy is the City's campaign to improve community energy efficiency in coordination with Mass Save, All-In Energy and Mass Energize.The goal of the campaign is to ensure that residents – renters, homeowners, and other residential property owners – as well as small businesses and local nonprofits, are receiving the full benefits of the statewide Mass Save® program.
Renters and property owners who want to join the City in its campaign to save energy can take the first step by visiting FraminghamSaves.org to sign up for a no-cost home energy assessment or learn about other offers for which they may be eligible. No-cost home energy assessments organized through the campaign are performed by a Mass Save home performance contractor or by the nonprofit Southern Middlesex Opportunity Council (SMOC), Framingham's Community Action Program agency, based on owner or tenant income criteria. Energy assessments can help renters and property owners receive products like high-efficiency showerheads, smart power strips, and programmable thermostats at no cost so that they can immediately begin saving energy and money. These assessments can also help them learn about other energy-saving opportunities.
