New bonus incentives for gas-saving equipment


For a limited-time, Energy Trust is offering standard and custom bonus incentives for select gas-saving equipment for existing commercial, industrial and multifamily properties in Oregon. Select standard bonuses will also be available for commercial and multifamily buildings in SW Washington.

To qualify for standard commercial, industrial and multifamily bonus incentives, equipment must be purchased on or after March 1 and installed on or before September 30, 2022. In addition:

  • A complete incentive application must be received by Energy Trust within 90 days from the date of purchase and installation
  • Energy Trust may require a post-installation verification for select projects before incentive payment
  • Customers should use the standard incentive application forms to apply for the standard bonus and can expect to receive their check six to eight weeks after a completed application is received

Custom project incentive bonuses will also be eligible for any projects that have an incentive offer issued and signed between March 1 and December 31, 2022.  

To qualify for retro commissioning (RCx) incentive bonuses, projects must have an incentive offer issued on or after March 1 and must be submitted with all completed final project closeout paperwork no later than December 31, 2022.

Bonuses cannot be combined with any other Energy Trust promotions or offerings, and incentives are subject to funding availability and may change.
