Oregon homeowners and renters who heat with oil, wood, propane, kerosene, or butane are eligible for home weatherization rebates for up to $500 per dwelling. A variety of measures, including insulation, HVAC, and gas technologies qualify for the rebates, which go directly to the homeowner, tenant, or contractor who installed the measure on the owner's behalf.

Residents complete an energy audit independently, or with the assistance of a certified contractor, to decide which measures are appropriate. After installing the new products, the “Energy Rebate” form must be filled out and mailed, along with the “Energy Audit Checklist” and copies of receipts to the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE). Rebate checks are typically received within four weeks. Both forms are available on the program web site.  ODOE must receive the request within one year of when the work was completed. The department may conduct inspections to inspect and verify implemented conservation measures.

Households that qualify for the U.S. Department of Energy Low Income Weatherization Program may receive incentives through an approved Community Action Agency. The Community Action Agency may receive up to $2,500 or 50% of the costs of weatherization and energy conservation measures taken during the SHOW grant period.
