Avista Utilities offers a variety of equipment rebates to Oregon residential customers. Rebates are available for boilers, furnaces, insulation measures, windows and programmable thermostats. All equipment must meet certain energy efficiency standards listed on the program web site. A complete rebate application must be turned in along with a copy of the customers' final invoice to qualify for the rebate.

Avista Utilities also provides a free in-home inspection to evaluate the cost and benefits associated with weatherizing your home. This free analysis is available to qualified Oregon residential customers who use natural gas as the main source of heat and whose houses were built before 1980. Weatherization Analysis Request Forms can be found on the program web site.

After the home inspection is complete, the customer may request either a loan or rebate from Avista Utilities for weatherization work not yet started or completed prior to the Home Energy Analysis. Incentives are calculated after the in-home inspection is completed.
