Solar Planning

Planning Ahead for Solar

Energy Trust of Oregon offers cash incentives and technical support that makes it easy and affordable to add solar to your building design. The benefits of solar power—such as lower energy bills, reduced carbon emissions and protection from rising electricity costs—are all great reasons to reach for the sun. We offer cash incentives and technical support that make going solar easy and affordable. We can also help you design your building to be solar ready and reduce the cost of a future solar installation.
