Pays For Itself Over Time

With solar, you can greatly reduce or eliminate your monthly energy bills. Instead of renting your energy, you are investing in huge long-term savings.

Don't be at the mercy of your electric company

  • Energy rates are constantly increasing.
  • Rates increased 15% over last 10 years.

WHY NATE WENT SOLAR WITH GREEN RIDGE

What our customers have to say

Ryan Rooney AvatarRyan Rooney
The Greenridge crew did a great job from start to finish. I went thru about twenty companies. Interviewing them and going thru my list of questions. Greenridge was one of my top choices. What real solidified the deal was a sales team, project management and the job walk. The sales team was not overbearing, informative and if they didn’t know they got the answer. The project management team was prompt and on time for the... read more

From beginning to end Green Ridge Solar was terrific. What we appreciated most was their handling of the permitting process which took 6 months, including getting easements from the power companies to put the array under their wires which cross the only clear areas of our ten acre forested property. The installation crew was exceptional. They were easy to talk to, answered our questions, made sure that what they were going to do was okay... read more

Grover House (Groverhouse) AvatarGrover House (Groverhouse)
I have worked with a lot of teams and this one is clearly fine tuned and driven by tech. I started with a recommendation from PGE to a list of contractors for solar and a battery. Green ridge was first to respond, fast with appointments, and present through the whole process. This was important to me as I wanted to ensure maximum offset of my electricity usage with all planned renovations in mind to my... read more

Now is the best time to go solar in Oregon

Thanks to a combination of federal solar incentives, state and local solar incentives, and historically low solar costs, it has never been cheaper to install solar panels in Oregon.

But don’t wait! Solar incentives are scheduled to decrease and disappear soon.

The federal government is offering a 30% tax credit on the entire cost of your solar project. But don’t wait, the tax credit decreases to 26% in 2033, then 22% in 2034, and expires in 2035.

Homeowners on Pacific General Electric (PGE) can earn a $400 solar rebate for installing solar panels.

Pacific Power customers can earn a $500 solar rebate for installing solar panels.
