Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB) offers an extensive list of energy efficiency rebates for existing facilities that apply to both specific equipment, as well as customized rebates for more comprehensive facility improvements. Rebate forms are located directly beside the various program descriptions on EWEB's program web site. Business and industrial customers participating in the customized rebate program will have an EWEB representative visit the facility and evaluate its energy use. During the analysis, the representative will identify potential efficiency improvements, provide a customized savings estimate with simple paybacks and discuss possible cash incentives for installing electric energy saving measures.  Rebates exceeding $1,500 require pre-approval before installation.

The streamlined rebate program provides prescriptive incentives for businesses to install:

  • HVAC Equipment
  • Lighting Equipment
  • Windows
  • Office Equipment
  • Refrigeration Equipment
  • Commercial Food Service and Cooking Equipment
  • Insulation

Full details including rebate applications and incentive amounts are available on the web site above.
