Why Home Energy Scores?
The Oregon Department of Energy's 2018 Biennial Energy Report took a deep dive into energy consumers in our state. Unfortunately, Oregon continues to see challenges faced by energy-burdened consumers.
An Oregonian is considered "energy burdened" when their household's energy-related expenditures exceed 6% of their income. In some Oregon counties, nearly half of the residents earning 200% or below the Federal Poverty Level are energy burdened.
Home energy scores can help consumers better understand a home's energy efficiency, and identify simple home improvements that can mean big savings for their energy bills.
