The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability has partnered with a local non-profit organization,Clean Energy Works Oregon, to help Oregonians make their homes more comfortable and energy efficient.  Clean Energy Works makes a home energy remodel easy with a free energy assessment, instant rebates, approved contractors and no-money-down financing.


How it Works

Carefully selected contractors who specialize in energy efficiency conduct a free home energy assessment to identify energy waste. Based on the results, multiple improvements can be bundled into a one-time home energy upgrade project to improve the energy efficiency of your home.  Possible upgrades include high efficiency windows, insulation, and advanced heating and cooling systems.  No-money-down financing is available to get your project completed with no upfront costs. Once the work is complete, Clean Energy Works Oregon inspects the upgrades to ensure everything performs as promised.  The result is a home that's transformed into a more comfortable and energy efficient living space for you and your family.
