Existing Buildings 2020 program updates and announcements


Energy Trust of Oregon has been working to update incentives and that will benefit businesses in communities across Oregon and Southwest Washington to maximize energy savings. Here are a few Existing Buildings program updates to keep in mind.

K-12 Schools program update

Energy Trust is working collaboratively with the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) to increase the amount of funding available for local K-12 schools starting January 1, 2020. Additionally, ODOE will now accept Energy Trust’s energy study, reducing the requirement from two studies to one. Stay tuned for more information or contact Christina Skellenger, outreach manager, Existing Buildings, at 503.320.4617 or email Christina.skellenger@icf.com with any questions.
