If your home is burning fossil fuels such as natural gas or oil, we have programs to help you upgrade to clean, efficient electricity.
Here in Eugene, we are fortunate to have one of the cleanest power portfolios in the nation, with almost no electricity sourced from fossil fuels.
Because 80 percent of EWEB's power comes from carbon-free hydroelectric energy, replacing your fossil fuel home- or water-heating system with an efficient electric system is one way you can help meet local and global carbon reduction goals.
Upgrading to a high efficiency electric system can help lower your monthly bills as well. A ductless heat pump powered by EWEB can be cheaper to install and operate than any other system, including natural gas.
We want to make it easy and affordable to go fossil-free. Our rebate and loan programs can help offset installation costs, and we're keeping electricity prices flat in 2018—marking the third time in four years that EWEB has been able to hold electric prices steady.
In addition to our everyday rebates and loans, eligible customers can now take advantage of our Clean Power Promotion and receive an additional $350 when you convert your existing natural gas or oil-burning system to an energy efficient heat pump or heat pump water heater system. Learn more.
A smaller carbon footprint. EWEB's 80 percent hydroelectric power does not produce air pollution or greenhouse gas emissions.
Lower energy costs. Because of the high efficiency of heat pumps, they can be less expensive to operate than gas systems.
Year-round comfort. Heat pumps come standard with air conditioning to keep you comfortable in any season. And a multi-head ductless heat pump system provides zonal temperature control.
Here in the Pacific Northwest, electric vehicles are a smart economic choice and an important piece of the region's move away from fossil fuels. In addition to state and federal tax credits, we offer a $200 rebate to help offset the cost of charging infrastructure for an all-electric car. Learn more.
To take advantage of the additional $350 incentive for upgrading your gas or oil-burning system to a heat pump or heat pump water heater system, apply online before March 31, 2018. Your account manager will help verify that your home qualifies for the promotion and walk you through the next steps.
