Oregon homeowners and renters who heat with oil, wood, propane, kerosene, or butane are eligible for home weatherization rebates of up to $500. A variety of measures, including insulation, HVAC, and gas technologies qualify for the rebates, which go directly to the homeowner.
Residents complete an “Energy Audit Checklist” 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. Rebate checks are typically received within four weeks. Both forms are available on the program web site. The Oregon Department of Energy must receive the request within one year of when the work was completed.
