Welcome to the Oregon Department of Energy’s Energy Efficient Wildfire Rebuilding Incentive Program. In 2021, the Oregon legislature passed HB 5006, allocating about $10.8 million to the Oregon Department of Energy for a new program incentivizing energy efficient rebuilding of residential and commercial structures destroyed during the 2020 Labor Day wildfires.
The program will help those wildfire survivors rebuild site-built homes, manufactured homes, multi-family homes, and commercial structures with current- or above-code energy building standards.
If you are submitting an incentive application for a project for the first time, select the option to apply for an Energy Efficient Wildfire Rebuilding Incentive. This includes those applicants who when applying have completed their projects.
If you have already applied and wish to change information you submitted in your application, select the option to amend your application. If you previously applied for an incentive and have now completed your project and wish to receive your incentive, select the completed project option.
Your application progress will be saved each time you click the ‘next’ button in the application. If you leave a page before clicking ‘next’ your progress on that page will be lost. If you have not submitted the application, the next time you log in you can continue the same application at the last saved location by selecting the option "I am applying for an Energy Efficient Wildfire Rebuilding Incentive".
The program is not currently accepting new applications or application amendments. Beginning June 1, 2023, new or changed applications will be placed in a processing queue in which all review, verification, and reservation activities will be put on hold. If the legislature gives ODOE authority to extend the program, we will process any new or incomplete applications under the new rules at that time.
