In 2021, a heat dome event claimed approximately 100 lives across Oregon. In response, the state legislature passed SB 1536 to help vulnerable communities deal with extreme weather.
The Community Heat Pump Deployment (CHPD) Program is part of this effort. It offers financial help to purchase and install heat pumps in communities across Oregon. Earth Advantage, chosen by Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE), oversees this program in the Portland-Metro and Willamette Valley regions, collaborating with various partners to install heat pumps in the homes of eligible Oregon residents.
How it Works
It is easy to get started. Our partners can guide you through the process and determine if your home could benefit from a heat pump, and add you to an appropriate waiting list.
Why Heat Pumps?Heat pumps are an affordable and energy efficient system that transfers heat between indoor and outdoor environments. They provide essential relief during extreme weather conditions and protect the health and wellbeing of residents.
