Utility Programs Assistance

Advanced Energy Group offers several utility programs assistance options depending on your location and provider. These energy assistance programs can help you save money both up-front and in the long run.

Available Programs

There are many energy assistance programs offered in both Massachusetts and Connecticut that can help offset the costs to power your facility. These programs can offer immediate utility assistance for a variety of upgrades and projects.

With energy efficiency programs offered through your utility provider, you can also lower your electricity bills by bundling them into a “comprehensive project”. A “comprehensive project” focuses on two or more end uses, such as lighting, refrigeration or HVAC. Not only does this help with utility bill assistance to save money in the long run, but it can also increase the amount of incentive money received from your provider for the project itself.

Let Advanced Energy Group provide you with a Free Energy Assessment to determine what course of action is right for your facility.
