Weatherization Program – Insulation & Windows

UEC members who want to install  energy efficient weatherization measures may be eligible to participate in Umatilla Electric’s Weatherization Program.  Homeowners may choose between a cash back rebate or low interest financing for qualifying weatherization measures. A FREE home energy audit is required. Weatherization measures may be installed by one of the installers listed on our Participating Installer list or by the homeowner. Loan requests over $15,000 will require approval from the UEC Board of Directors. This program may be changed or terminated without prior notice.

Audit-blowerdoor-setupThe first step in to participating in the Weatherization Program is to call UEC to schedule your FREE home energy audit.  This provides important information about your home to you the homeowner as well as the participating installer. Weatherization measures are only eligible for existing homes to upgrade the existing conditions.  Window replacement is a part of the Weatherization program; however “Priority 1” weatherization measures that may be identified during the course of the energy audit are required to be installed at the same time as the window replacement.  “Priority 1” measures include attic insulation, underfloor insulation, duct and whole house air sealing.

After the audit is complete contact one or more participating installer to schedule a bid appointment.  Each installer will provide you with and UEC with a copy of the bid proposals. When you have made your decision, contact UEC to let us know which installer you prefer.


Following the completion of your weatherization measures, a UEC representative will contact you to schedule an inspection. This inspection helps to make sure that the measures are installed Audit-paperworkcorrectly and that you are satisfied with the installation. Homeowners who are installing the weatherization measures should be sure to save all receipts for materials associated with the installation. Upon inspection approval your rebate will be processed and you will receive your check directly from Umatilla Electric.

Umatilla Electric will pay depending on the energy savings that you achieve. This will be calculated based on information specific to you weatherization project.  Existing site-built or manufactured homes are eligible for a UEC weatherizatin rebate; tenants as well as homeowners qualify.

All persons appearing on the title of the land where the weatherization measures are to be installed must be included in any loan application.  Upon approval of the application, you will be contacted to schedule an appointment to sign the contract.
