My solar panels were installed almost two weeks ago. I have had comments from my neighbors as to how nice the panels sit on my house. The inspectors from my county engineers and electrical utility have all noted how neat and professional the panels and hookups are installed.

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 26% tax credit on the entire cost of your solar project. But don’t wait, the tax credit decreases to 22% in 2023 and expires in 2024.
