Most solar systems and other renewable energy projects in Oregon are eligible for a combination of utility rebates, state rebates, and a federal tax credit.
These incentives help offset the cost of the initial investment to install a solar system, which in turn shortens the amount of time required for your power bill savings to result in a net positive return on your solar investment.
Rebates & tax credits
The incentives you may qualify for depend on which utility’s territory your project will be built in. But nearly all Oregon projects will qualify for these two:
- The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 included many tools to support residential, commercial, and institutional solar electric system investments. The most significant has been the extension of the 30 percent federal investment tax credit (FITC) for solar projects until 2032.
- The Oregon Department of Energy runs the Oregon Solar + Storage Rebate Program (OSSRP), which makes up to $5,000 available per residential project. There is also additional money available for qualifying low-income service providers. We are an approved contractor with the Oregon Department of Energy, and can help you reserve a OSSRP solar incentive for your project.
Additionally, many Oregon utilities offer a rebate or incentive program to support solar or solar-and-storage installations.
Don’t assume that these programs will always be available. Each fiscal year, the agency responsible for an incentive can change the amount or discontinue a program. And the OSSRP and some utility rebates can run out of available funds in a given year.
