How to Apply for a Rebate

The following steps explain what you will need to do in order to participate in the Weatherization Incentive program. For details about program qualifications, please refer to the audit report from Canby Utility for your residence.

  • Decide which energy efficiency improvements you would like to install.

Approximately one week after your Home Energy Audit, you will receive an Audit Report letter in the mail. This report will contain recommendations for energy efficient home improvements. Carefully review the report and decide which energy efficiency improvements you would like to make.
Important: Pre-approval of your project is required before you begin work.

  • Determine who will complete the work. 

NOTE: Canby Utility reserves the right to inspect completed work, and will only pay rebates on work that meets Canby Utility’s specifications.
Option A: Hire a contractor to perform the work.
Option B: “Do It Yourself” (You are the contractor).
Your contractor and/or you will need to follow Canby Utility’s weatherization specifications to qualify for a rebate. Call 503.266.1156 to request an electronic copy of the specifications manual.
NOTE: Due to size of the manual, it is only available in electronic format.

  • Complete the Rebate Application

Option A: Hire a contractor to perform the work.
Before you get started, the contractor should perform an on-site bid to determine actual job costs.
A contractor must follow the requirements described in Canby Utility’s weatherization so the work will qualify for the rebate. Contractors can call 503.266.1156 to request an electronic copy of the manual. Please refer to the Canby’s “Residential Weatherization Rebate Form,” “Blower Door Guided Air Sealing Form,” and/or “Residential Window Form” for all documentation requirements.

Option B: “Do It Yourself” (You are the contractor).
For Do it Yourself projects, Canby Utility will rebate up to 100% of the cost of the materials, but not your labor costs. Save your receipts – Canby Utility will require copies of all receipts upon job completion. Please refer to the Canby’s “Residential Weatherization Rebate Form,” “Blower Door Guided Air Sealing Form,” and/or “Residential Window Form” for all documentation requirements.
You and/or your contractor will need to complete and sign the “Residential Weatherization Rebate Form,” “Blower Door Guided Air Sealing Form,” and/or “Residential Window Form.”

Payment of rebates is subject to inspection and approval of completed installation.

  • When the project is complete, notify Canby Utility to request an inspection.

Once your project is complete, notify Canby Utility. Projects must be completed within 90 days of the date on the audit report.
NOTE: Rebates will be paid only if electric heat is the primary heat source at the time of the inspection and will remain the primary heat source.

  • Rebate released.

Funds are not released until your completed work has been inspected and/or approved. You must also provide copies of your contractor’s invoice(s) or your receipts for materials. After Canby Utility has received all necessary paperwork, your rebate check will be mailed as soon as possible.
