SALEM —The Home Energy Performance Score Stakeholder Panel will hold a public meeting on March 11 at 9 a.m. in Room 115 of the Market Street Building located at 1600 SW 4th Avenue in Portland.

The panel helps the Oregon Department of Energy implement and update the home energy scoring system rules and works toward greater market standardization for home energy scoring in Oregon. Panel members include energy efficiency experts, utilities, a home builder association representative, and home appraisers.

Home energy scoring systems help homeowners and homebuyers better understand a home's energy use, and how even small improvements can make a big difference in energy savings. Investing in energy-efficient homes helps Oregonians save money now and supports a cleaner, safer, and more sustainable energy future. Learn more about home energy scoring on ODOE’s website.

At Monday’s meeting, representatives from Eugene Water and Electric Board, City of Portland, and Oregon Department of Energy will update the panel on stakeholder and partner activities. The panel will then review and vote on a statewide scorecard for Oregon. Currently, the City of Portland and Eugene Water and Electric Board have established their own versions of a scorecard, which meet all requirements of Oregon rules. A new statewide scorecard would provide those interested in developing additional programs with a template to work from while allowing local control of design elements.
