Oregon Loves Solar Power
Oregon’s power company such as Pacific Power has many state and local rebates available depending on what city you live in such as Oregon’s Solar Electric Incentive Program. Oregon has a law that makes solar systems exempt from property tax increases which means that you can enjoy the benefits of an increased home value without having to pay the increased taxes. As we discussed earlier, the state also has an incredible net metering system in place to save homeowners money throughout the year.

Cost of Solar in Oregon
Solar Installation Process in Oregon
The cost of a solar energy system is different for every homeowner. There are many factors that will determine the exact cost such as; materials, installation, and labor for your solar energy system, the size of your home, type and size of your roof, energy consumption, the amount of panels, cost of permitting, etc. The federal, state, and local incentives will also have a big impact on the final cost. The only way to know exactly how much solar will cost for your home is by contacting us to receive consultation by a solar expert. We know it can be helpful to get an idea of the local data though: According to EnergySage, the average cost of an installed solar panel system in the state of Oregon is $10,795 to $14,605. Many customers have actually been able to save money by going solar due to the current low financing rates. If you’ve got a credit score over 650 and an income of over $40k/year then you have a really good chance to qualify for solar financing in Oregon. When you work with Noble Solar, we’ll include the cost of labor in our initial quote to make the breakdown as simple as possible.
The installation process for those living in Oregon is similar to the installation process in any other state. Many homeowners choose to stay connected to the grid so that they can benefit from the potential savings of the amazing net metering program that Oregon offers. Solar can be installed year round in Oregon, but we recommend a spring installation date because it ensures that your system will be up and ready to go by the time summer comes around. This also allows installers to avoid a winter installation. The installation process usually takes less than one day to complete but may take longer depending on the size of your system.
