Oregon customers whose primary heat source is natural gas from 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.
Follow these easy steps to get cash for installing a direct-vent gas heater in your home:
1: Establish your eligibility.
2: Select a contractor and have the work completed.
To receive an Energy Trust cash incentive, contact a quality, energy-efficiency trained Energy Trust trade ally contractor or any contractor with a current Oregon Construction Contractors Board (CCB) license.
NW Natural customers of Washington can also use an Energy Trust trade ally contractor or any other licensed contractor with a current Washington contractor’s license.
3: Submit your incentive application within 90 days of installation. Often, your contractor will help you complete the application form. Use our online application or mail or fax your signed and completed paper application form along with your contractor's invoice—marked “paid in full”—to:
