Main Street Energy Efficiency
*Thank you to all Contractors and Businesses that have participated, we have reached our goal*
Clackamas County is not accepting applications at this time.
The rebates pay:
$.10/kWh saved over five years* ($.50/annual kWh saved)
$1.15/therm saved over five years* ($5.75/annual therm saved)
*Rebates for HVAC projects will be paid based on 20 years of savings at these same rates.
Rebates are not to exceed $2,500. Clackamas County EEMS rebates are in addition to ETO incentives, and the sum of all financial incentives cannot exceed the total project cost.
Funds are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
EEMS is a cooperative program of the Clackamas County Main Street program and the Office of Sustainability. The EEMS program is funded by the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant awarded to Clackamas County as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Aft of 2009, and USDA Rural Development. Clackamas County works closely with the Energy Trust of Oregon. ETO is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping Oregonians benefit from saving energy and tapping renewable resources.
Energy Efficiency on Main Street was recently highlighted on the U.S. Department of Energy website.
The Clackamas County Energy Efficiency on Main Street program is offered to business and property owners located in Clackamas County (exception areas: Lake Oswego and Lake Grove). As direct recipients of EECBG funds, businesses located in Lake Oswego and Lake Groce are exempt from the Clackamas County program.
Participating in the program is simple:
Step 1. Submit the Pre-Application Form to express your interest in pursuing an EEMS rebate.
Step 2. Follow the Energy Trust of Oregon Incentive Path and apply for available ETO incentives. As part of the ETO program you can receive a free energy walkthrough, here is the form to complete.
Step 3. Turn in the EEMS application along with a copy of your ETO incentive application and project receipt. Once approved, Clackamas County will issue a rebate check.
*The standard EEMS rebate path requires you qualify and apply for existing incentives through ETO. Should you be interested in energy efficiency measures outside of ETO's purview, please call to learn about the custom EEMS rebate process.
