Hotel and restaurant operations depend on energy-intensive equipment—and energy expenses can be quite inhospitable. Energy Trust offers cash incentives for investing in energy-efficient equipment, including high-efficiency motion sensor nightlights, packaged terminal heat pumps, high-efficiency gas fryers, gas convection ovens, vent hoods, ice machines and more. Learn more about incentives and get started here.
The following equipment purchases will be eligible for a bonus incentive until December 31, 2017. Invoices and applications need to be submitted by January 5, 2018.
In other words, instead of an incentive of $800 per vat for your ENERGY STAR certified Gas Fryer, you will receive an incentive of $1,100 per vat.
Follow these steps to complete your application:
1. 120P Incentive Application Form: Completely filled out with signature typed or signed (Click for 120P)
“Site Address” is where the equipment is installed
“Mailing Address” is where the incentive check will be sent
Incentive checks are mailed within 60 days from receipt of all complete and accurate information and documentation of an application
2. W-9: This is the most commonly forgotten piece. (Click for W9) The W-9 must have:
A legal business name (or legal personal name) listed under the appropriate type of entity (e.g., individual, LLC, LLP, corporation, government)
A clearly written EIN (or SSN)
3. Itemized Invoice: For the qualified equipment, including model numbers.
4. Utility Information for the Site Address:
If applying for incentives for Gas Equipment (including gas water heating): Provide a copy of the site’s gas bill (NW Natural, Cascade Natural Gas).
If applying for incentives Electric Equipment: Provide a copy of the site’s electric bill (Portland General Electric or Pacific Power).
You may submit your completed Form 120P, W-9, invoice, and utility bill(s) via fax, email, or mail. It is recommended that you keep a copy of your application, documents, and submission of your application for your records.
