Unitil Smart Energy Solutions


Natural Gas Customers

More than ever, businesses are looking for ways to save energy and lower their monthly utility demands. Our energy efficiency programs for commercial, industrial and multifamily gas customers can help by making your building or business more energy efficient.

Our energy efficiency programs all begin with a free or reduced-cost energy assessment of your commercial, industrial or multifamily property. At the conclusion of the energy assessment, you will receive a written report listing energy-saving opportunities that also includes the projected financial benefits of each identified opportunity. Plus, we'll assist you in selecting an independent installation contractor to perform the necessary work for the products you want. All workmanship and materials installed under the program are warranted for one year by the contractor.

Not only do we offer energy efficiency programs for our commercial & industrial (C&I) customers, we offer rebates and incentives to share the costs with you. For more information, or to inquire about an energy assessment for your business or building, call us at 888-301-7700866-933-3820 Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.or visit the MassSave website.
