Energy Trust of Oregon offers the Industrial and Agricultural Production Efficiency Program to customers of Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural and Cascade Natural Gas. In order to qualify for these rebates, customers must be contributing to the Public Purpose Charge. Energy Trust offers technical assistance and cash incentives for industrial processes of all kinds — including large industrial, manufacturing and small industrial, wineries, food processing, cold storage, agricultural, greenhouses, irrigation districts, and water/wastewater treatment. Standard prescriptive incentives include lighting, green motor rewinds, heat pumps, variable speed drives, and premium HVAC equipment. Other rebates designed to fit the needs of specific industrial processes also exist. For example, there are irrigation system rebates for agricultural customers and compressed air rebates for small manufacturing customers. Customers interested in participating in the program should contact an Energy Trust representative to find out which rebates best fit their particular facility. Steps for reserving incentive funds for projects vary depending on the type and magnitude of the project.
