Weatherization Program

Fort Rock State Park

CEC is pleased to offer a residential weatherization program to our members with older, electrically heated homes. This program can help owners of electrically heated homes improve efficiency, control heating costs, increase comfort levels AND receive a cash discount to help offset the cost of the energy improvements.

Eligibility

Owners of site-built electrically heated homes, constructed before 1992, and all manufactured homes may be eligible. The Oregon Building Code required site-built homes built after 1992 to be weatherized at the time of construction.  If your site built home was constructed between 1992 and today, click this link for programs your home qualifies for.

How much is the financial incentive?

  • $ 0.30 per square foot of ceiling insulated.
  • $ 0.45 per square foot of floor insulated.
  • $ 0.50 per square foot of wall insulated.
  • $ amount varies by residence for air sealing.
  • $ 3.00 per square foot of window area to replace single pane window with any frame type (wood, metal, vinyl, etc.) and double pane windows with metal frame
