CommunitySavers® Rebate Program
The CommunitySavers program has incentives available to make improvements that can help building managers, owners and tenants save on energy costs!
In addition to installing free tenant unit upgrades, our new and improved CommunitySavers program now offers bonus incentives for standard and custom common area and whole building efficiency improvements. We provide dedicated account managers to assist you through the entire process. It’s easy to participate and the improvements will immediately impact your bottom line by saving on energy and maintenance costs and providing a more comfortable and safe environment helping you to reduce tenant turnover. CommunitySavers is available to rental properties with three dwelling units or more that meet the income and other eligibility requirements.

Get an additional 25% bonus!
The CommunitySavers program is now offering a 25% increase to all approved Business Standard or Custom Incentives for income eligible common areas and whole building system improvements. Below are more details about available incentives, but the good news is you don’t have to figure it out on your own. We are here to provide you with personalized information on the best investments for your property.
Common Area Incentives apply to electric upgrades in communal areas of your building.
Whole Building or Building Shell Incentives apply to the building structure.
Whether you want to start with a smaller project or go big with a whole transformation, the Program provides both a Standard and Custom rebate option for comprehensive retrofits and measures to MFLI property owners.
Standard Incentives are a quick and easy way to receive cash for your energy efficiency upgrades. Incentives are paid on a per unit-installed basis and are available for a variety of qualifying equipment from lighting to electric water heating to swimming pool pumps! Properties with no common areas are also eligible for a 25% increase in the Residential Heating and Cooling Measure incentives.
If you don’t see it on the Standard list we can work with you. Virtually any cost-effective energy efficient project qualifies for a Custom Incentive, including heating, ventilation and air conditioning, domestic hot water, motors, envelope improvements, controls and more. These incentives are calculated based on the projected annual energy reduction for each kilowatt-hour (kWh).
Enhanced Cash Incentives for Lighting Upgrades.
By participating in the CommunitySavers program, you will receive a free assessment to identify additional energy efficient savings opportunities under the Small Business Direct Install (SBDI) program. Eligible projects include a variety of high efficiency lighting upgrades, lighting controls, LED exit signs, and occupancy sensors. You may receive as much as 50 to 100% of the total installed project cost.
