Beginning January 1, 2018, single-family homes for sale in Portland are required to receive a home energy score assessment before they can be listed. The results of this score are disclosed to potential home buyers, allowing them to better understand the home’s annual energy use and costs. The home energy score is a rating between 1 and 10. If your home scores a 5, it is expected to perform comparably to an average home in Portland in terms of energy use. If your home scores a 10, it ranks among the 10 percent of homes expected to use the least amount of energy.
Four CEP staff members, Roc, Peter, and Jackie are certified to provide home energy score assessments. Community Energy Project can work around your schedule with appointments on evenings and weekends. Our assessments are a flat rate, regardless of the size of the home.
For low-income households, Community Energy Project is contracted through the City of Portland’s Bureau of Planning and Sustainability to provide home energy score assessments at NO COST.
