You are here: Home Residential Solar Steps to Solar Solar Water Heating Incentives



Incentives provide funding to reduce the upfront cost of installing a qualified home solar water heating system. The amount of the cash incentive depends on your utility and how much energy your system will save annually.

Energy Trust of Oregon Incentives

To make it easy for you, the cash incentive is applied up front—like a coupon—reducing the amount you pay to your contractor. Once your project is complete, we verify that it was properly installed and then reimburse your contractor for the amount of the cash incentive.
