How it Works

We can help you get started on the Path to Net Zero in just a few simple steps.

Start the Conversation

Tell us about your project and enroll during the earliest stages to access the full suite of incentives and resources.

Set Your Target

Your kick-off meeting with an Energy Trust outreach manager will establish the preliminary EUI target and energy-efficiency strategies that best fit your project.

Apply for Incentives

Once your energy-efficiency goals are defined and the path for achieving Net Zero is set, your outreach manager will work with you to identify the most relevant incentives and resources.

Request Payment

Energy Trust reviews each incentive application as it is submitted. Once approved, the cash incentive is paid when the associated work is completed. Submit a W-9 upon completion of each stage to receive your incentive check.

Net Zero Fellowship

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2018 NET ZERO FELLOWS

Energy Trust is excited to announce our second annual Net Zero Fellowship research grant recipients: Joel Good with RWDI, and Ihab Elzeyadi, a professor at the University of Oregon. Over the next 10 to 12 months, Joel will focus his research on the value of passive design strategies for resiliency in net-zero commercial buildings. Ihab will explore the non-energy benefits of net-zero schools, including the impact on occupants’ performance and comfort. We look forward to learning from their research and sharing it with the building community in 2019.
