Oregon customers primarily heating their homes with electricity or natural gas from Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural or Cascade Natural Gas can participate.
NW Natural customers in Washington who heat their homes with natural gas can receive our incentives.
Oregon homeowners who heat with oil, propane, kerosene, butane or wood can conduct their own energy audit and apply for cash rebates for installed weatherization upgrades through the Oregon Department of Energy's SHOW (State Home Oil Weatherization) program.
Energy Trust does not pay incentives for energy-efficient improvements that are required for building code compliance, such as remodeling, renovation or new additions to a home.
