  • 3,212 low-income Oregon households thankful for stimulus help
    More than 3,200 low-income families in Oregon will collectively save about $155,000 a year in future energy bills thanks to a yearlong program run by the Oregon Department of Energy and Oregon Housing and Community Services. The State Energy Efficiency Appliance Rebate Program, which concluded earlier this year, provided rebates to 3,212 Oregon households that purchased Energy Star® appliances, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems and water heaters.

  • ODOE to use ARRA funds for Governor's Schools Energy Audit Initiative
    Governor Kitzhaber directed the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) to launch a comprehensive School Energy Audit Initiative. The audits are the first step in a multi-phase, statewide effort to achieve improved energy efficiency at public schools and create jobs.

    The energy audits will be conducted at no cost to the school districts or community as they will be entirely funded by federal stimulus (American Recovery & Reinvestment Act) funds through the Oregon Department of Energy's State Energy Program. The audits are expected to cost $2 million.
