This free workshop covers the basics of why solar is a smart choice for Oregon homeowners. We have broken this workshop into 2 parts. The first part will cover:

  • How well solar works in Oregon's climate
  • Available solar technologies and how they fit into your overall energy use
  • How to choose a contractor
  • Site considerations

In the second half of the workshop we will cover the financial considerations of going solar including:

  • Financial incentives, tax credits
  • Feed in Tariff Pilot program
  • Leasing and power purchase options
  • Financing options

Residential tax credits and incentives often pay for up to 80% of the cost!

Plus Chief Stan Gibson will present the Fire Station's PV and Solar Water Heating systems!

Participants will come away with basic knowledge about solar energy systems and will be prepared to do more focused research on their own and start working with a contractor.
