Website Platform Fees

Our fees partially cover our costs for developing, maintaining and supporting our web platform, which include paying professional software developers and student interns and supporting various cloud hosting services. We have established the standard fee schedule below for municipalities, based on the number of households as determined from the U.S. Census. We feel our fees are very reasonable for the value provided, but do not want these fees to stand in your way to becoming a MassEnergize Community. We have an established policy for abating fees for environmental justice communities, described below, and are happy to discuss the fees with non-municipal organizations such as educational institutions, and houses of worship.
