Federal Tax Credit for 2014 installations

Congress passed legislation that retroactively extends federal residential energy efficiency tax credits to 2014 installations. Consumers who installed a DHP or HPWH in 2014 may be eligible for a tax credit of up to $300. Let your customers and installer partners know so they can take advantage of this extension. Learn more about the tax credits and eligibility requirements from ENERGY STAR®.


State Tax Credits

Oregon updated its residential energy efficiency tax credits for 2015. HPWH tax credits are now linked to the Northern Climate Specification, with up to $585 for Tier 1 and up to $985 for Tier 2. DHPs installed as the primary heating source in new or existing homes are eligible for a tax credit of up to $1,000 to $1,300, depending on the HSPF. Auxiliary applications—installations in previously under-conditioned spaces that have been converted to be part of the residential dwelling—are eligible for a tax credit of up to $625. To learn more about these credits and eligibility requirements, please visit Oregon’s Department of Energy here.


Montana’s energy conservation tax credit is available to homeowners who have installed a HPWH or DHP, with credits of up to $500 for individuals and up to $1,000 for couples filing jointly. To learn more about this credit and eligibility requirements, please visit Montana’s Department of Environmental Quality here.
