Energy Trust offers an $800 cash incentive per residence. The incentive is limited to a maximum of one incentive per home and is available to offset the cost of one outdoor unit and one indoor unit installed per home. Additional indoor or outdoor units are unlikely to produce significant additional energy savings and are not eligible for additional Energy Trust incentives. Customers who install more than one outdoor unit and/or more than one indoor unit must submit Form 300DHP along with their incentive application.
To qualify for this incentive:
- Residence must use electric resistance heat (examples include: baseboards, ceiling and wall heat or electric forced-air furnaces) as the primary heat source
- The ductless heat pump replaces the electric resistance heat in the main area of the home*
- Unit must be inverter-driven with a minimum five-year warranty
- Ductless heat pump line sets—the pipes that transfer coolant between the outdoor and indoor units and are wrapped with insulation to prevent heat loss—must be enclosed by the line set cover. To prevent insulation deterioration from the sun, Energy Trust recommends wrapping the insulation with UV tape.
- Unit must be installed by a contractor who is trained by the manufacturer on the specific heat pump brand, and who attended a NW Ductless Heat Pump Project orientation webinar. View a list of qualified contractors.
*Please note: newly built homes, new additions, homes with existing heat pumps, boilers or gas furnaces do not qualify for this incentive.
Moderate-income residents in Oregon who participate in Savings Within Reach are eligible to receive an increased cash incentive when a qualifying heat pump is installed by a participating contractor. Special requirements apply. See all available cash incentives for moderate-income residents.
