please call the Energy Services Department at (503) 728-2163.

Questions and Answers about Savings Plus
After you have received recommendations
from your free home energy analysis, either cash incentives or credit on
your current CPUD bill will be available to help you complete the
project. The incentives for qualifying measures are: $1 per square
foot for added insulation to walls, floors and ceilings in electrically
heated areas; and $5 per square foot for Energy Star rated replacement

How do I get the ball rolling?
To schedule an energy analysis call the
PUD at (503) 728-2163 during regular business hours 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
Monday through Friday. The analysis takes about an hour. Access to your attic and
crawlspace openings need to be cleared prior to the appointment. You
will be given a list of qualifying measures for your home and a list of
PUD qualified installers.
What are the payback times?
Caulking, weather-stripping and simple
insulation measures usually payback in energy savings in less than one
year. Wall, floor and attic measures usually have a three to four year
payback. Window replacement and heat pumps usually will have a longer
payback depending on the installation cost and energy savings achieved.
