Upgrade your new or existing commercial facility to be more energy efficient.
SUB works with you, your contractor and/or your vendor to qualify your project for SUB’s incentives to help pay for improvements.

Carefully read the SUB ESD Programs Incentive Application, print, fill out, sign and submit to SUB your pre-application for incentives. Please also submit the scope, bid, estimate or your project proposal. Call 541-746-0963 for more information.

Standard Incentive amounts greater than $20,000 will be adjusted by the following formula:
