Energy Trust of Oregon Saving Lots of Thousands


So far this fall, more than 18,000 utility customers are taking action to reduce their power bills.  The free products and advice are offered thru the Energy Trust of Oregon program. "We've saved Oregonians over $600 million in energy costs, so we're having an impact." Energy Trust of Oregon spokesperson Megan Clark says all it takes is a phone call and a local energy expert will come out to your place. The short visit can make a big difference in the long run. "A lot of older homes, they're not up to current code in terms of insulation levels. That a really good place to start. So we'll look in your attic and look under your home and measure your insulation levels and determine if you have code levels and if not, we'll not only let you know that but we'll provide you the info to add insulation to your home." The program is funded through a charge that's already on most utility bills.
