Energy-Efficient Rebuilding Incentives: The Oregon Department of Energy has $10 million available to support Oregonians who lost their homes or businesses during the 2020 wildfires. As Oregonians rebuild, the agency will provide financial support to improve energy efficiency to make rebuilt homes and businesses more comfortable and provide long-term energy savings. Incentive amounts range from $3,000 up to $18,000, depending on the building type and the level of efficiency in rebuilding. Higher rebates are available for low-or moderate-income fire survivors. Those who have already started or finished rebuilding their homes can receive retroactive incentive money. To apply or find more information, CLICK HERE.
