City of Portland Home Energy Score logoEarth Advantage is supporting the implementation of the City of Portland’s Home Energy Score program. 

The City of Portland ordinance goes into effect on January 1, 2018 and requires homes listed for sale in the Portland real estate market to receive a Home Energy Score, which provides information on a home’s relative energy performance. 

Earth Advantage plays two primary roles to support the City of Portland:

Real estate firms and title companies are also welcome to engage with Earth Advantage-approved Portland Home Energy Score trainers who can provide in-person presentations on the City of Portland Home Energy Score program.
