OHCS Home / Energy and Weatherization / SHOW

The State Home Oil Weatherization (SHOW) Program provides cash payments to eligible applicants who install energy conservation measures on Oregon dwellings heated by fuel obtained from fuel oil dealers. Transferred from the Department of Energy in 2018, the SHOW Program has been in operation since 1981. An annual Petroleum Supplier Assessment provides funding for the program, and all applications are subject to the availability of funds.


Eligible fuel oil dealers are those who retail at least heating oil or dyed diesel, but any other fuel purchased from them is eligible. Dwelling owners (including rental property owners) and contractors are eligible to apply.


Cash payments are awarded to eligible applicants based on the measures completed and the income level of the current occupants of the dwelling. The determination for eligibility of Tier 1 cash payments is a household income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. Cash payments may be reduced if historical cash payments through the SHOW Program were awarded on behalf of the respective dwelling. The following chart indicates the eligible measures and the maximum cash payments awarded per tier:


Payment Tier
