Energy Trust of Oregon is offering cash incentives that can cover up to 100% of the cost for property managers of multifamily housing and manufactured home parks to create a safe cooling space in common areas, such as lobbies, dining areas, community rooms or laundry areas.
Many of Oregon’s most vulnerable citizens lack cooling in their residences and this can be dangerous during extreme heat events. This is part of a statewide effort to provide safe cooling spaces for Oregonians, especially vulnerable populations. All property owners or managers of multifamily housing and manufactured home parks in Oregon are eligible to participate in the program.
For priority properties, defined as multifamily Tribal, affordable, nonprofit-managed, senior, and agricultural workforce housing and manufactured home parks:
100% of project costs reimbursed, up to a maximum of
- $1,400 for portable or window air conditioners (maximum of $700 per unit)
- $7,000 for ductless heat pumps, heat pumps and hard-wired air conditioners
For all other properties:
60% of project costs reimbursed, up to a maximum of
- $800 for portable or window air conditioners (maximum of $400 per unit)
- $4,000 for ductless heat pumps, heat pumps and hard-wired air conditioners
Energy Trust can also provide free technical assistance to select the best equipment and cooling capacity for the available space.
