Portland's pioneering community solar-power program is coming to North and Northwest Portland, giving residents there the chance to install home solar electric systems at a steeply discounted rate. Two neighborhood coalitions -- North Portland Community Services and Neighbors West-Northwest -- are organizing the program, which lets residents join to purchase home solar-power systems as a group, netting wholesale prices. Additional tax credits and a cash-incentive program help bring down costs even more.
Top federal officials Thursday unveiled plans to accelerate large-scale solar energy developments across the West. But as Rob Manning reports, those plans don’t include Oregon.
