How is a home energy score calculated and what does it mean? 
How will program requirements impact home sellers? 
How could a home energy score help your buyers and sellers? 
How can I find a qualified home energy assessor?

Earth Advantage has developed a city-approved training based on the final rulemaking to help real estate professionals answer common questions and to provide a comprehensive overview of the current program requirements. Join us for this update webinar to gain insights into the final rulemaking results and get your questions answered. 

The City of Portland Home Energy Score Program will go into effect on January 1, 2018. Final rulemaking was completed by the City of Portland on September 13, 2017. The ordinance (Portland City Code Chapter 17.108) requires sellers of single-family homes to:
  • Obtain a home energy report, including a home energy score, from a licensed home energy assessor;
  • Disclose the score and report prior to listing a home publicly for sale in Portland on or after January 1, 2018.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the relevance of energy efficiency to home buyers
  • Find out how the Home Energy Score Program will work
  • Understand what makes an above- or below-average score
  • Learn how to describe the score to buyers/sellers
  • Gain resources and info to support and best serve your clients
