CMLP's Previous Heat Pump & Central A/C Rebate Program

12.Will CMLP be continuing its rebate program for air conditioning-only systems?

No. The Central Air Conditioning rebate program for air-conditioning-only systems will be discontinued on September 9, 2017 in favor of the new Air-Source Heat Pump rebate program. Since the additional cost of a heat pump over a cooling-only system is modest, CMLP encourages its customers to purchase versatile heat pumps rather than cooling-only systems. In addition to increased comfort (and cost savings for some customers), the use of heat pumps to heat as well as cool will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, helping Concord meet its goal of 25% fewer emissions by 2020 and 80% fewer emissions by 2050.

13.When will CMLP stop accepting applications for the previous Central A/C & Heat Pump rebate program?

CMLP discontinued the Residential Central Air Conditioning / Heat Pump Rebate Program material on September 9, 2017. However, we will still accept applications under that program for any compliant cooling-only systems or heat pumps installed through the end of 2017 in order to accommodate sales activity or installations in progress when we discontinued the program on September 9, 2017.

The rebate application for any cooling-only system or heat pump installed before the end of 2017 under the old Residential Central Air Conditioning / Heat Pump Rebate Program must be received by CMLP within one year of the equipment purchase date in order to be eligible for a rebate.  Email Pamela Cady at pcady@concordma.gov for an application form.
