$250,000 in Energy Incentives for Businesses
Energy Trust of Oregon offers two incentives for its commercial, agricultural and institutional customers to increase the energy efficiency of their existing buildings. The standard incentive program provides prescriptive rebates for the retrofit of electric motors, lighting equipment, and HVAC equipment, as well as equipment specific to the food service and lodging industries. 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. Approved custom efficiency projects are eligible for incentives up to 25% of the total approved cost not to exceed 12¢/annual kWh saved. To qualify for a custom incentive, the energy savings must be at least 25% of the current energy use for lighting equipment and 10% for all other equipment and measures. Both custom and prescriptive incentives for existing buildings are capped at $250,000 per site per year. And the business must be served by Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural or Cascade Natural Gas in Oregon, and it must be paying the public purpose charge.
