National Grid's EnergyWise programs encourage energy efficiency amongst its residential customers. Interested customers who heat with gas, oil, or propane should schedule a free home energy audit through National Grid’s Weatherization or EnergyWise programs. Once the recommended measures are completed and the installation is inspected, National Grid will provide a rebate of 75% up to $2000.  Eligible weatherization measures include: insulation (attic, wall, basement, crawl space, rim joist, or pipe), ductwork leakage testing and sealing, air infiltration testing and sealing.

National Grid also offers free home energy audits to all residential electric customers, condominium associations, and apartment building owners. Additionally, customers are eligible for water heating equipment, boilers, boiler reset controls and furnaces.
