Savings Within Reach
Put savings within your reach with a $550 cash incentive.
Savings Within Reach, offered through Energy Trust of Oregon, makes it easier for moderate-income Oregon households to make energy-efficiency upgrades and home improvements.
Participating Savings Within Reach contractors, who install a 90 percent AFUE or greater natural gas furnace in your home, deduct $550 from your invoice so you can reduce out-of-pocket expenses. Gas furnaces used as backup for high-efficiency heat pumps, also known as hybrid systems, are not eligible.
Savings Within Reach On-Bill Repayment
Get energy-efficient upgrades now with easy, low-cost financing repaid through your NW Natural bill.
Savings Within Reach customers may apply for a 10-year Craft3 loan with a 5.99% interest rate (loan is 5 years for loans of $2,000 or less) for specific energy-efficiency improvements that receive Energy Trust incentives. The maximum loan amount is $7,500 and the length of the loan depends on the amount borrowed. Once approved for the loan, your monthly payment will appear on your energy bill after the project is complete.
