PLEASE NOTE: As a preventative response to the spread of coronavirus in the state of Oregon, we are suspending the home audit program through May in an effort to protect our customers and employees. We hope this action will help reduce the risk of contracting and/or transmitting the virus. The home audit program may resume in the month of June, but given the uncertainty and rapidly changing circumstances, we will not schedule future home audits at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
EWEB's free Efficiency Education Program is available to customers who meet income guidelines or who have difficulty paying their EWEB bill and would like to reduce energy use.
Free home energy audit: We will visit your home and evaluate it for energy and water efficiency, looking for opportunities to reduce your monthly utility bill, improve your home comfort and lower your carbon footprint. Customers participating in the Efficiency Education Program will receive a free kit with energy and water-saving products and basic emergency preparedness supplies.

The best way to reduce your overall utility bill is to use less energy and water. Efficient appliances and weatherization upgrades can help. We make it easier for you to invest in efficiency products through our rebate and loan programs. Income-qualifying customers may be eligible for expanded rebates or loans to upgrade heating systems, insulation, windows and more. Qualification is based on your household income and the size of your household. View the income guidelines to see if you qualify for these programs. Please note that income-based efficiency rebates and loans are for homes with existing electric heating and water heating.
