Water Assessment and Home Energy Review
Learn about opportunities to save water, energy and money at home. Gresham water customers can call to schedule a Water Assessment and Home Energy Review. This City pilot program is a collaboration with Energy Trust of Oregon.
- It's free and lasts two hours.
- Most improvements are easy to implement and cost effective.
- Residents may receive free showerheads, faucet aerators and compact fluorescent light bulbs.
- Participants may qualify for our new toilet rebate program.
How it Works
During the two-hour assessment, a professional advisor reviews the home from top to bottom seeking out areas of water and energy waste. The customer receives helpful tips and information, and even some free products that can help with savings right away.
At the end of the assessment, the customer receives a list of prioritized recommendations and information on cash incentives, tax credits and local rebates available for making improvements.
Water conservation assistance may include:
- Checking toilets for leaks and replacing the flapper valve if needed.
- Measuring the flow rate for all faucets and showerheads, and replacing them with high-performance devices as needed.
- Checking toilet tank sizes.
- Instruction how to read the water meter and check for leaks.
- Toilet rebate information and additional water conservation materials.
- You have a City of Gresham residential water account.
- You live in a single-family residential home, ideally built before 1992.
- You heat your home using Portland General Electric, NW Natural, Pacific Power, or Cascade Natural Gas.
