Clean Energy Works Portlandâ„ is a pilot program that is helping up to 500 qualified Portland homes finance and install energy efficiency upgrades.
The pilot offers homeowners access to low-cost financing for energy efficiency home improvements, like new insulation or the installation of a high efficiency furnace or water heater. To help decide which upgrades and financing options make sense, participants will receive the assistance of a qualified Energy Advocate throughout the process.
Homes in the Clean Energy Works Portlandâ„ pilot must be owner-occupied and located inside the City of Portland. If you apply, you can expect to hear within 4-6 weeks, or sooner, whether your home has been accepted into the pilot.
Oregon awarded $20 milllion in Federal Recovery Act funds

With this additional funding we are working to expand our services to thousands of participants in metro and rural Oregon with this funding.
