Selling your home? Call us to get your Home Energy Score!

Starting on January 1, 2018, anyone selling a home within Portland’s city limits will be required to provide a Home Energy Score and Report detailing:

  • How much energy the the home uses
  • Any associated energy costs
  • Cost-effective solutions for making the home more energy efficient

This Home Energy Score and Report must be included in any listings, ads or online postings you put out for the sale of your home.

Luckily, getting an assessment is easy! Community Energy Project has been approved by the City of Portland to provide home assessments and produce the reports needed to meet the City’s new Home Energy Score requirements.

What to expect from a CEP Home Energy Inspection

An authorized Home Energy Assessor from Community Energy Project will come to your home and take about an hour to assess its energy use. They will collect information about your home’s foundation, insulation, walls and windows as well as heating, cooling and hot water systems. They will not ask you questions about your personal energy use.

The Home Energy Assessor will enter the information they gather into the U.S. Department of Energy’s Home Energy Score software to score your home.

Once your assessment is complete, your home’s Home Energy Score and Report will be available at the Green Building Registry.
