Grants for Mass. smart-energy tornado repairs


BOSTON (AP) — Government help is available for some Western Massachusetts property owners interested in energy-efficient repairs following tornado damage last summer.

Massachusetts energy officials say Hampden and Worcester county building owners have until Oct. 1 to start applying for grants or no-interest loans through a state program.

The so-called ReBuild Western Massachusetts program provides aid for energy-efficient upgrades including building insulation, solar electric and solar hot water system. It also covers Energy Star windows.

State officials say dozens of property owners have used the program to rebuild after the June 1, 2011 storm.

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, which administers the program, says rebuilding is an opportunity to construct something that uses less energy and saves money.
