Cash for Boilers – Update!

Last Week, we were able to meet with Matt Greco (Department of the Environment) at the apartments on Guerrero st.  He informed us that our low pressure stream boiler did in fact qualify for the incentives program, which could save us 20-30% on the cost alone.  Luckily, when Mr. Greco was inspecting the boiler, he found heavy corrosion, a result of the steam over the past 30 years. In addition, he mentioned that we can receive incentives for a new thermostat, radiator, and pipe insulation!

Overall, it was a success.  From here, I will be contacting contractors trained through this incentive program who will give us quotes in the weeks to follow.   Check out the photos of the existing boiler on Guerrero St. below
