    Energy-efficiency measures must be installed in a permanent structure. Trailers or moveable structures are not eligible for incentives.

    The project site must be located in Oregon and served by Portland General Electric, Pacific Power, NW Natural, Cascade Natural Gas or Avista, on a qualifying rate schedule.

    Energy Trust must conduct pre- and post-verification for the installation.

  2. Get started on your project.

    Lighting projects:  Find a trade ally contractor to work with on your lighting project.


    Energy-efficient equipment upgrades:  Contact the Energy Trust program delivery contractor in your area to determine what free technical services and cash incentives are available for your grow facility.

  3. Complete the appropriate incentive form for your cash incentive

    Be sure to check all of the “Qualifying Criteria” to ensure that your equipment qualifies for Energy Trust incentives. You must return a complete and signed incentive form with your invoices for your equipment to Energy Trust within 180 days of purchase and before the end of the calendar year to receive your incentive. Your incentive check should arrive within 4-6 weeks. View our forms and resources page for cannabis forms.

Energy Trust offers free technical services and cash incentives to cannabis grow facilities for:

  • High-efficiency lighting and lighting controls, including LEDs. Energy Trust lighting specialists can work with you or your lighting vendor to specify qualified equipment.
  • Technical studies to identify energy-efficiency opportunities for HVAC, insulation and other improvements, for qualified projects. Energy Trust can pay up to 100 percent of the cost of a study.

Cash incentives are based on estimated annual energy savings and are available at $0.25 per kilowatt hour and $2.00 per therm. Incentives can cover up to 50 percent of your project cost and can be provided directly to the equipment vendor or contractor.
