To help make upgrades more affordable, Energy Trust of Oregon offers increased incentives and on-bill repayment for income-qualified homeowners who are eligible for Savings Within Reach. To assist income-qualified customers even further, the lower of the two current loan limits will be eliminated on January 1, 2023.
There are currently two tiers of loan limits for Savings Within Reach On-Bill Loan Repayment based on installed measures. The lower tier is $6,500 and the higher is $10,000. Due to increasing prices and supply chain issues, the lower $6,500 loan limit may put some measures out of reach for some customers. To avoid this problem, effective January 1, 2023, Energy Trust will eliminate the lower $6,500 tier, and the loan limit for all eligible measures will be $10,000.
