Why Our Rebate Programs May Differ From Pacific Power
Pacific Power customers pay a 3% tax on their monthly energy consumption. These funds go to an organization called the Energy Trust of Oregon (ETO). This organization is tasked with using the millions of dollars it accumulates to facilitate various conservation and rebate programs for Pacific Power customers.
Douglas Electric Cooperative is locally owned and governed by its members. Our conservation program funds come not from a tax, but from Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), where we are allowed a discount based on the amount of power we purchase from them. That credit is available only if used to fund conservation programs. BPA establishes the eligibility criteria as well as the credit amount for these programs.
Program criteria may be different than ETO and credit amounts may be higher or lower depending on the measure installed or purchased.
