PCC Rock Creek's 500kW ground mounted solar array

Join us for a free Basics of Going Solar workshop and tour of PCC Rock Creek's solar array.  

1pm Workshop Begins

2:30pm Solar Tour

About the Workshop:

The Basics of Going Solar workshop covers why solar is a smart choice for Oregon.

Come find out:

  • How well solar works in Oregon's climate
  • Available solar technologies and how they fit into your overall energy use
  • What makes a good site for solar
  • The financial considerations of going solar including incentives and tax credits
  • Leasing, power purchase and financing options

Residential tax credits and incentives often pay for up to 75% of the cost!

About the Tour:

Visit the largest ground mounted solar array in the Portland Metro area, approximately 35,000 square feet of solar. This area also doubles as a sheep pasture, so be sure to bring appropriate footwear for the tour (i.e. boots or sneakers. Closed toe shoes are a must)

PCC Tour and Workshop will be led by Solar Oregon Board Member, Bruce Barney.
