Your Questions Answered

Am I eligible to receive energy assistance?

Households are eligible when their total gross income is 70 percent or less than the statewide median income as determined by the State of Oregon.

How is the payment made?

Payments are made directly to your fuel vendor (electric, oil, propane, wood or gas). It generally takes 3 to 6 weeks after the application process before payment is received by your utility.

Where am I able to apply for energy assistance?

Oregon Energy Fund works with 30 partner agencies located throughout Oregon to help Oregonians facing hardships with emergency energy assistance during the winter months. If you are behind on your energy bill do not wait to be "disconnected" it will only cost you more money. Please reach out to your utility company for assistance today.

What are the income guidelines?

Eligibility is based on the total gross household income received by all members living in the home at the time of application (families sharing a dwelling must apply as one unit). Income includes wages, unemployment compensation, TANF payments, Social Security, SSI, pensions, VA, grants and other regular payments. Income does not include food stamps, loans, subsidies, etc.

5 must-do energy steps

Lightbulb Switch to LEDs

When you’re spring cleaning, switch out a few bulbs. LEDs use about 80 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs and last up to 25 times longer. Thanks to Energy Trust of Oregon, you can find reduced prices on LED bulbs for can lights, table lamps and other fixtures at Costco, The Home Depot and Lowe’s. Look for signs or ask at the store.

Temperature Set the Temp

Install a programmable thermostat to lower utility bills and manage your heating and cooling systems efficiently. Set your thermostat at 68 degrees or as low as possible during the day. Set it at 50 to 55 degrees at night or when you are gone.

Filter Check Filters

Clean or replace filters on furnaces, air conditioners, or heat pumps once a month or as needed. Also, make sure to maintain the system according to manufacture’s instructions. Replace clogged air filters on an older car with a carbureted engine to improve gas mileage by as much as 10% and to protect your engine.

Plug home electronics, such as TVs and DVD players, into power strips; turn the power strips off when the equipment is not in use—TVs and DVDs in standby mode still use several watts of power.

Save Water

Save water by not letting water run while you are shaving. Fix leaky faucets, thirty drips a minute of hot water wastes 50 gallons of water a month. You can also install water-saving faucet aerators on sinks you use most commonly use.
