Home Performance Ratings
This Initiative seeks to implement a Home Performance Rating System in Corvallis. The home energy performance rating allows prospective buyers and renters to make informed decisions on future energy use/cost. A certified professional evaluates a home’s performance by looking for air leaks, checking insulation levels inspecting windows and doors, making sure heating and cooling systems are maintained, checking, lighting and more then issues a score. Property owners will be incentivized to make energy conserving and renewable energy production improvements to achieve a high energy score.
