Ductless heat pump incentives to remain available in 2018


Every fall, Energy Trust reviews its incentive offerings to determine incentive levels, requirements and availability for the following year. We identified cost-effectiveness challenges for ductless heat pumps installed in Existing Homes and manufactured homes—influencing Energy Trust’s incentive level, requirements and ability to provide an incentive for this measure in 2018.

Energy Trust submitted a cost-effectiveness exception request to the OPUC to maintain incentives in 2018 for ductless heat pumps installed in Existing Homes and manufactured homes, as previewed in an October Insider article.

On November 7, 2017, the OPUC approved OPUC staff’s recommendations to grant a cost-effectiveness exception. As a result, there will be no change to Energy Trust’s incentives for ductless heat pumps installed in Existing Homes and manufactured homes in 2018.
