Energy Trust, in partnership with Oregon Housing and Community Services, CASA of Oregon, NeighborWorks Umqua, St. Vincent de Paul of Lane County, and regional Community Action Agencies, will identify qualified homes and/or parks, seek additional funding opportunities and monitor the impact of retiring and replacing older (pre-1995) manufactured homes with new, energy-efficient models. This innovative approach will benefit manufactured home occupants and communities for decades. It can also provide non-energy benefits such as healthier living conditions and greater economic security.
The new manufactured homes in this pilot will meet the standards of the Northwest Energy Efficient Manufactured Home Program, NEEM, delivering the maximum cost-effective efficiency benefit. Incentives available to the customer for qualified products are based on the NEEM 1.1 specification; additional incentives are available for homes reaching NEEM 2.0 specification.
