RMLD's Energy Efficiency Programs are intended to increase awareness and adoption of practices, products, and technologies that provide a multitude of benefits, such as:
- Helping customers use energy more efficiently in their home or business
- Reducing RMLD's electricity usage during expensive peak demand times
- Helping the environment by reducing carbon emissions
The programs are a combination of education, services, and financial incentives such as rebates. Rebates are intended to encourage customers to purchase energy-efficient equipment that they otherwise may not have purchased without a rebate.
RMLD's Energy Efficiency Programs are funded by an Energy Conservation Charge included on each customer's electric bill in accordance with the Massachusetts Residential Conservation Services (RCS) Program. The charge is currently $0.001 per kilowatt-hour.
