Re:      Changes to energy efficiency rebates and Oregon State tax credits

     If you’ve been considering taking advantage of our rebate program, now is the time to act to maximize the benefit and put more money back into your pocket. Bonneville Power Administration has announced reductions and eliminations to some energy efficiency incentives beginning October 1 of this year, and the Oregon State Residential Energy Tax Credit program is set to expire on January 1, 2018.

     Below is a chart that will help you see measures that are changing, and what you stand to lose by waiting. If you’ve been on the fence about replacing an outdated water heater, for example, upgrading an old furnace for an energy efficient heat pump or ductless heat pump, or many other energy saving measures, now is the time to take advantage of maximum savings.

     Each of these measures will help save money on your electric bills in addition to the rebate and tax credit savings you receive now. Part of your electric rate is mandated to go to BPA energy efficiency, and this is the way you get your dollars back.

     Please call our trusted energy efficiency partners at 1-888-883-9879 to get started. Find rebate forms and more information on our website at:

www.blachlylane.coop/content/residential-rebates-and-direct-install-program or by calling our office.
