Solar and Storage Development Assistance

Considering solar to lower energy bills, curb carbon emissions and guard against long-term energy price increases? Interested in battery storage for backup power? Energy Trust of Oregon can help get your project started. We offer cash incentives to help with initial solar planning and can connect you with qualified solar trade ally contractors.

To help you determine the solar and storage potential of your project, we offer a Solar Development Assistance incentive up to $2,500 and a Battery Storage Development Assistance incentive up to $5,000 to offset the upfront cost of a feasibility report, which will provide you with a custom system design and cost-benefit analysis.

Qualifying project or customer types include:

  • New Building
  • Solar + Storage
  • Nonprofit
  • Public
  • Tribe
  • Utility Grant Applicant

You may also qualify for assistance with solar planning for new buildings.

A solar trade ally contractor can help you understand what solar or solar plus battery storage options are most appropriate for your site. They will also line up your Energy Trust incentives and can help you connect with grants or other funding for which you may be eligible.

To learn more Solar Development Assistance and Battery Storage Development Assistance, talk with an Energy Trust solar trade ally.
