More than 8,000 homeowners across Oregon have installed a solar electric system with cash incentives from Energy Trust. The cost of solar electric equipment has been steadily falling over the last several years. And the federal government recently extended the Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which returns 30 percent of the cost to install the solar energy system to the purchaser. With this combination of state incentives and federal tax credits, Portland homeowners can offset up to 80 percent of their initial investment in rooftop solar!
There’s never been a better time to go solar!
