NW Natural is partnering with Energy Trust of Oregon and local nonprofit lender Craft3 on a groundbreaking new program that removes a major barrier to homeowners making energy-efficiency improvements: upfront costs.
Instead of paying out of pocket for these home energy upgrade projects, qualifying NW Natural customers in Washington will now be able to make monthly payments on their already low natural gas bills.
Individual loans are available for up to $15,000 to install high-efficiency gas equipment, such as, fireplaces, furnaces and tank water heaters; insulation; windows and air sealing - that qualify for Energy Trust cash incentives.
On-bill Repayment is being piloted in Washington state. Customers interested in this program can apply at www.energytrust.org/repayment.
