The Bureau of Planning and Sustainability has partnered with local non-profit, Clean Energy Works. CEW works with homeowners to make Portland homes safer, healthier, more energy efficient, more comfortable and more valuable. Clean Energy Works evolved out of BPS' groundbreaking pilot program, Clean Energy Works Portland, which ran from 2009 - 2011. 


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, advanced heating and cooling systems and solar. CEW also offers services to help homes prepare for earthquakes and ensure clean and safe air by testing for radon gas. No-money-down financing is available to get your project completed with no upfront costs. Once the work is complete, Clean Energy Works 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.
