The popularity of electric vehicles (EVs) in Oregon has skyrocketed in recent years. And for this family in Hood River, Oregon, solar panels and battery backup were the perfect solution to power their home and their Tesla EV.
To accomplish this, we installed 28 solar panels and an LG Chem battery backup system. The solar system combined with the battery backup will ensure the EV is always charged and the house has a constant supply of power during any power outages.
With their new solar panels, they will produce nearly 100% of their power from solar and save an estimated $25,000 on energy bills in the first 10 years. That’s upwards of $55,000 over the next 25 years. And as energy prices continue to increase, those savings will only grow bigger and bigger. Plus, they will save even more on fuel with their Tesla EV.
If utility prices keep rising at they rate they have been recently, that savings can compound even higher! This is especially true in the Creswell, OR area, which has been installing more and more solar. This has meant millions in energy savings for those Creswell families and businesses.
