Plant an ecoroof, get money back

Portland reopens subsidy program


Portland’s Bureau of Environmental Services is reopening its subsidy program to encourage Portlanders to add ecoroofs, vegetated surfaces atop buildings that provide several environmental benefits.

The incentive pays $5 per square foot toward the cost of new ecoroofs, which typically cost $5 to $20 a square foot.

Industrial, residential, commercial and mixed-use projects are eligible.

Application materials and more information are available at www.portlandonline.com/bes/ecoroofincentive. To receive an application form in the mail, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 503-823-7914.
