Avista’s Steve Vincent for energy conservation work
involving R19 roof insulation at a city service center
building. The work is estimated to save 4,209 therms
of natural gas and $4,156.85 annually for the city.
Avista partners with customers in reducing natural gas use through cost effective energy conservation projects by providing cash rebates. The City of Medford continues to be a leader in the public sector in reducing operating expenses and its long term use of energy.

Avista recently presented the city with an incentive check for $14,732 for energy conservation work involving R19 roof insulation at a service center building. The work is estimated to save 4,209 therms of natural gas and $4,156.85 annually for the city.

Unfortunately it is very common for conservation projects in public buildings to not bother with utility cash rebates. However, the city is a standout exception, said Avista Regional Business Manager Steve Vincent. This demonstrates the city’s fiscal prudence with public funds.

“Partnering with Avista also helps the company achieve its own annual energy conservation requirements established by the Oregon Public Utility Commission,” Vincent said.
