Appliances & Smart Thermostats

The PUD administers a rebate program for customers who install electrically efficient measures such as heat pumps, weatherization, appliances and lighting with funds provided by Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). BPA determines what measures result in actual energy savings and what they will pay for a rebate.  Rebate measures increase, decrease and sometimes completely expire based on the state of the market or other new information based on their analysis.
