In 2002, the nonprofit organization Energy Trust of Oregon was formed with the goal of delivering energy efficiency and renewable energy programs to Oregonians. The organization is headed by a volunteer board of directors and receives input from two advisory councils of industry professionals. Since it was founded in 2002, the Energy Trust of Oregon has helped participating customers of Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural and Cascade Natural Gas save more than $1 billion on energy costs.

One of the services that the Oregon Energy Trust offers is home-assessments for energy-efficiency performance. They will show you how every component in your home, such as your water heater, insulation, and windows, work together and how you can improve energy efficiency in your home. They write you up a customized report that shows what you are currently paying for your energy bill and what you could be paying if you maximized your home’s energy efficiency. Investing in energy efficient appliances now will often save you a lot more money in the long run.

The Energy Trust also offers cash incentives to customers for energy efficient heating-related home improvements, such as gas furnaces and heat pumps, and assists with finding qualified contractors to install those improvements. Ultimate Comfort Heating is a highly rated Portland Oregon HVAC Company, who specializes in installing energy efficient appliances and components. In association with the Energy Trust of Oregon, Ultimate Comfort Heating can help you with your Portland heating and cooling needs. Partnerships between the Energy Trust and heating and cooling specialists like Ultimate Comfort Heating really contribute to cutting down on energy costs and help build a sustainable energy future for the Portland Metro Area.
