Water and Energy Rebates Rebates for purchases of qualified Energy Star appliances, or WaterSense labeled 1.28 gallon per flush toilets, are available to City of Ashland electric and water utility customers using a simple one page form, along with proof of purchase receipt.
This program is designed to encourage Ashland citizens and businesses to invest in photovoltaic generation installations by paying rebates for qualifying installations, as well as a net metering policy that provides credits for excess generation of energy.
Energy Efficiency Programs
QUALIFYING SOLAR ELECTRIC INSTALLATIONS* THAT PASS THEIR ELECTRIC INSPECTIONS BEGINNING JANUARY 1, 2023 CAN RECEIVE INCENTIVE PAYMENTS OF $600 FROM THE CITY OF ASHLAND.
Due to robust installations of solar systems in Ashland, the City has expended our entire solar incentive budget for two years in the first year of our biannual budget period. the larger solar incentives offered by Ashland than by other utilities in Oregon have resulted in increased installations by solar contractors from all areas of the state and out of state. To extend the availability of solar incentives we need to supplement our solar budget and adjust solar incentives to be more in line with other utilities.
* Qualifying systems will have at least 2,500 Watts of modules with TSRFs (total solar resource fractions) of at least 75% that are independent (independent maximum power point tracking) from modules with less than 75% TSRFs.
