Energy Trust of Oregon offers incentives for commercial and institutional customers of any of the state's investor owned utilities to increase the energy efficiency of their existing buildings. The standard incentive program provides prescriptive rebates for the retrofit of insulation, water heaters, lighting equipment, and HVAC equipment, as well as equipment specific to data centers, grocery stores, and the food service and lodging industries. For more information on incentives specific to different industries, see the Energy Trust web site. Projects must be pre-approved before making any equipment purchases or initiating any work.
Business customers retrofitting existing buildings through measures not covered under the standard incentive program can still receive financial assistance from Energy Trust through the custom incentive program. Restrictions and limitations apply to customers who use over one average megawatt per year and are subject to the Self-Direct policy. Customers can call 1-866-605-1676 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
To receive Energy Trust incentives, the customer must be served by Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural, Cascade Natural Gas and Avista in Oregon, and it must be paying the public purpose surcharge.
