[ARCHIVED] Malden Selected for Mass Save® Community First Partnership to Boost Energy Efficiency

NGirid & MassSaves

The City of Malden is pleased to announce it has been selected to participate in the 2022-2024 Community First Partnership offered by the Sponsors of Mass Save to increase energy efficiency in homes and businesses. The City is one of 30 communities selected to participate in this new initiative. In the first year of the program, Malden will receive $60,000 to support community outreach and engagement to boost participation in the Mass Save energy efficiency programs, especially in environmental justice communities.

The City of Malden will work with National Grid, the local Mass Save Sponsor, to provide cost-saving energy efficiency solutions to residents, small businesses, houses of worship and local nonprofits. Malden’s outreach will focus on renters and landlords, non-English speaking/Limited English Proficiency residents, low-to-moderate income households, and small businesses. The outreach will also support participation in Malden’s Housing Rehab program, which offers financial assistance to help property owners make necessary repairs to homes occupied by low- and moderate-income residents. That program, and Malden’s participation in the Community First Partnership, are administered by the City’s Office of Strategic Planning and Community Development.

“The Mass Save energy efficiency programs help residents, businesses, and nonprofits save money on energy while reducing our carbon footprint and combating climate change,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “With this new initiative, we will significantly increase the number of Malden residents and businesses that benefit from these programs, particularly among hard-to-reach communities.”

The City applied for the Community First Partnership with assistance from City Councillor Carey McDonald, the chair of the City Council’s Energy Efficiency and Sustainability Committee.

“As energy costs go up, this Mass Save outreach will help put money in the pockets of residents across our diverse community,” said Councillor McDonald. “Saving energy in our homes and buildings is a cornerstone for a sustainable future, pushing back against climate change that threatens us with storms, flooding, poor air quality and rising temperatures.”

Mass Save program participants will receive a no-cost energy assessment to identify energy-saving opportunities, such as insulation and heating and cooling equipment upgrades. Through this partnership, the Mass Save Sponsors offer up to 100% off the cost of approved upgrades. Participants can also receive a variety of no-cost energy-saving products such as water saving devices and programmable thermostats.

Malden’s goals include:

  • 450 residential weatherization upgrades
  • 100 residential heating and hot water upgrades
  • 50 small business energy assessments

Residents, small businesses, houses of worship, and local nonprofits interested in participating can request a no-cost energy assessment at or by calling (781) 536-7773.
