Oregon Commercial Energy Efficiency Programs

Avista offers our commercial 420 and 424 rate schedule customers' incentives to help conserve natural gas. Efficiency is one of the easiest ways for a business to reduce operating expenses. Many projects not only save natural gas, but other resources as well. If you don't see what you're looking for in the rebate and incentives below, chances are, we can help you with a custom or site-specific project.

For your convenience, below are three basic paths to start saving energy.

Custom or Site-Specific Rebate Programs**

Site-Specific (custom) incentives are available for many natural gas energy efficiency projects that fall outside the parameters of our prescriptive programs listed above. Whether you're planning on a new building or upgrading an existing one, we'll gladly help identify cost-effective opportunities within your facility that take advantage of incentives and may help you operate more efficiently.

Some examples of energy saving opportunities that may be identified are heating equipment, controls, insulation, new construction built above code and other processes that may be unique to your facility.

Incentives are calculated after a study is completed for the proposed efficiency measure and project costs are determined.

**Eligibility and programs defined through Avista Utilities Oregon tariff schedule 492.
