$2,400-9,000 Energy Trust Incentive

Generous state and federal incentives can greatly decrease the cost of going solar and provide a huge boost to your long-term solar savings. 

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.
  • Renting your power adds up to thousands of dollars wasted each year.
  • Instead of renting your energy, why not own your own power plant?
  • Take back control of energy costs with solar power.

I had solar arrays installed on 2 homes. One had unforeseen structural issues that Green Ridge remedied at their cost in order to pass the city of Portland inspection. On the other home I ended up with a more powerful array than I expected at no extra cost. I highly recommend this company. They install top line products. Emma Purice was great to work with, very pro-active, excellent customer service/coordination. The crew was fast professional... 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 26% tax credit on the entire cost of your solar project. But don’t wait, the tax credit decreases to 22% in 2023.

Homeowners on Pacific General Electric (PGE) can earn a $0.30 per Watt rebate for their solar install, with a maximum rebate of $2,400.
Pacific Power customers can earn a $0.20 per Watt rebate for their solar install, with a maximum rebate of $1,200.

 

Solar Within Reach is a solar incentive program for income-eligible Oregon residents. Solar Within Reach is run by Energy Trust of Oregon and provides elevated incentive rates for households that meet certain income requirements.

Qualifying residents will receive up to $1.50 per Watt discount on their solar installation, with a maximum discount of $9,000 per home.

To qualify for Solar Within Reach, homeowners must:

  • Be a Pacific Power or Portland General Electric customer
  • Have gross annual income at or below the income threshold for their household size (see chart below)
  • Work with a qualifying Solar Trade Ally Contractor, such as Green Ridge Solar.

Solar + Storage is a rebate program run by the Oregon Department of Energy. The program makes solar and\\or battery installs more affordable for Oregon residents.

To qualify for the Solar + Storage Rebate, low-income or middle-income homeowners must be eligible for (not necessarily enrolled in) one of the following programs:

  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
  • Oregon Energy Assistance Program
  • Low Income Weatherization Assistance Program

Rebate rates for solar installs are determined based on income levels:

  • Low-income and middle-income residents: $1.80 per Watt (DC) of installed capacity, up to 60 percent of the net cost or $5,000, whichever is less
  • Non low-income or middle-income residents already eligible for a utility incentive: $0.20 per Watt (DC) of installed capacity, up to 40 percent of the net cost or $5,000, whichever is less
  • Non low-income or middle-income residents not eligible for a utility incentive: $0.50 per Watt (DC) of installed capacity, up to 40 percent of the net cost or $5,000, whichever is less

Note: The 26 percent Federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC) is not considered a utility incentive.

Rebate rates for energy storage are as follows:

  • Low-income or middle-income residents: $300 per kilowatt hour of installed storage capacity, up to 60 percent of the net energy storage system cost or $2,500, whichever is less
  • Non low-income or middle-income residents: $300 per kilowatt hour of installed storage capacity, up to 40 percent of the net energy storage system cost or $2,500, whichever is less
