Avista Utilities (Gas) - Oregon Residential Weatherization Program

September 13, 2011


Avista will provide a free in home inspection to evaluate the cost and benefits associated with weatherizing a home. This free analysis is available to Avista’s qualified Oregon residential customers who use natural gas as their main source of heat.

After an in-home inspection is complete, customers may request either a cash rebate or a loan from Avista for weatherization.   Work must not have been started prior to the Home Energy Analysis. Incentives and financing of up to $5,000 per dwelling is provided after approval of credit. No down payment is required, repayment terms are up to ten years, and flexible payments start at $15 per month per loan.
