Neil Kelly Home Performance has been selected as one of eight local contractors qualified to implement Phase II of the City of Portland’s Clean Energy Works Portland Pilot Program.
This phase of the pilot program aims to help 50 local residents reduce carbon emissions and cut household energy use, while creating local jobs, by retrofitting existing Portland homes. The long-range Clean Energy Works Portland pilot goal is to upgrade 500 Portland homes before moving the full-scale program to the entire community.
The major barrier to any energy retrofitting has always been the upfront costs. This pilot program eliminates all up-front costs for participating Portland homeowners. Once qualified, these homeowners will receive low-interest, long-term financing for quick, easy and affordable energy efficient upgrades, with low monthly payments to be added to their local utility bills from PGE, PPL or Northwest Natural.
