We all know that making energy-saving improvements leads to lower energy bills (and way more comfortable homes), but many people don’t realize that they may be eligible for increased cash incentives to help make these upgrades on a limited budget. Many participants in Energy Trust of Oregon’s Savings Within Reach program are surprised to find that they qualify for these increased incentives—a moderate income family applies to a lot more of us than we may realize!
You must be a Pacific Power customer living in a single-family or manufactured home and be completing a qualified project that will save energy on your electricity bill. Rental properties do qualify but your landlord needs to approve the projects. Qualifying projects may include insulation, ductless heat pumps, high-efficiency furnaces, and heat pump water heaters (be sure to check out Energy Trust’s website for full requirements for each project).
