Decide Today. Save Over 50%!


Going Solar Today Could Save You Over 50% Off Of Your Total Cost!

Unless new legislation is passed, 2017 is the LAST YEAR to claim BOTH the State and Federal Tax Credits to install solar.


Historically, homeowners have enjoyed reduced costs of going solar by taking advantage of both Oregon’s Residential Energy Tax Credit (RETC) and the federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC). However the RETC is scheduled to sunset on December 31st 2017. This means that unless the RETC is extended, 2017 is the last year you can claim the OR income tax credit and deciding to go solar today could save you 30-50% as opposed to waiting until 2018. If you’re on the fence about going solar, now is the time to act!

As an added bonus…….If you are a Pacific Power or Portland General Electric customer you can also take advantage of cash incentives taken off the gross cost of your system to immediately reduce your cost to go solar!
