If your home is primarily heated by oil, propane, kerosene, butane, or wood, you may be eligible for a cash payment if you install new windows in your home. Homes primarily heated with natural gas or electric heat do not qualify for SHOW cash payments.
The cash payment is valued at 50 percent of the cost of the project, up to $500 ($2,500 for Community Action Agencies).
See the full SHOW program requirements in the Administrative Rules .
Qualifying windows include:
- Windows or sliding doors with a U-factor of at least 0.30 or lower. The U-factor is an energy efficiency rating. Generally, the lower the U-factor, the better.
- Storm windows covering uninsulated exterior doors.
- Storm windows over single-pane glass windows, if double-glazed windows are not an option.
After installing your new windows, fill out the SHOW Application and send to the Oregon Department of Energy. Please include your completed Energy Audit Checklist and a copy of your itemized receipt.
Applications are available for owner-occupied homes, rental homes, and Community Action Agencies.
