Heat Pump Program

The Heat Pump Program offers rebates for qualifying equipment listed on the Cold Climate Air Source Heat Pump List. Rebate amounts are $500/ton as determined by the system’s AHRI cooling capacity with a rebate cap of $2,000; additional adders available for weatherization and Energy Star.

Heat Pump Installation

Residents interested in installing a heat pump can schedule a no-cost consultation today. You can also view the list of participating contractors for Hingham.

Brief overview of rebating process:

  • Optional no-cost consultations at any point(s) throughout the resident’s process
  • Contractor Pre-Approval and Install QA: required for rebate eligibility; these two online forms are submitted by the contractor before and after install, respectively
  • Using a contractor on the Participating Contractors List: not required for rebate eligibility but a good starting point; work completed by any contractor is eligible for a rebate so long as the equipment qualifies and the contractor follows the pre-approval & install QA process
  • We would appreciate it if you would fill out this customer survey post heat pump installation

Rebate Eligibility Requirements

  • Appliance must be installed at the account location.
  • HMLP reserves the right to inspect the installation on premises.
