An energy efficiency program that makes ductless heat pump systems available at a discounted price is offering a final workshop in Jackson County at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25 at the SOU-RCC Higher Education Center in Medford.

Energize Rogue is a limited-time group purchase campaign that simplifies the installation process for customers and provides guidance on incentives and financing.

In addition to a discounted group purchase price and lower energy usage, Ashland Electric Utility customers may be eligible for a variety of incentives, with rebates from $500-$1,200 offered through the City’s Conservation Division. Residences served by Pacific Power may qualify for $800 in cash rebates through the Energy Trust of Oregon, if upgrading from another electric heat source. Residential customers may also qualify for the State of Oregon Residential Energy Tax Credit.

Since February, the Energize Rogue campaign has resulted in 84 ductless heat pump installations in the Rogue Valley — with about 40 of them in Ashland. Energize Rogue is project of the regional nonprofit Spark Northwest with Rogue Climate as its local community partner.
