WATTSMART_OREGON_SIGN resizedLet us tell you about a beautiful town  in Oregon called Wattsmart. It’s a wonderful place, where everyone uses energy-efficient appliances, all homes are well insulated and hot apple pie shows up at your front door every day.

Well, that might be a stretch, but it doesn’t change the fact that we can all conserve more energy. That’s why Pacific Power has teamed up with Energy Trust of Oregon to offer cash incentives for energy-saving home upgrades. These upgrades will help you stay comfortable, plus save money.

While we can’t all live in Wattsmart, Oregon, Pacific Power is dedicated to ensuring we can  learn to live wattsmart! Visit Pacific Power’s website and you’ll find simple and effective strategies to keep your energy use low:

Updating your lighting – Switching from traditional incandescent light bulbs to ENERGY STAR® qualified bulbs is the easiest and most affordable step you can take to reduce your electricity costs.

Recycling old refrigerators – Refrigerators built before 1993 can use three times more energy than new high-efficiency models. By getting rid of a second fridge in your garage or basement, you can save up to $150 annually.

Weatherization – From insulation to new windows, weatherization helps prevent unwanted air escape or intrusion, controls moisture and keeps pollutants out.

Pacific Power and Energy Trust offer energy efficiency incentives for businesses, too.
