Utility Independent Home Rebate Program

April 09, 2002


The Oregon Office of Energy offers financial and technical support for people interested in buying a solar electric system for their home. In addition to the residential tax credits, the Oregon Office of Energy offers a rebate of up to $2,000 (while funds last). A rebate for the project can be reserved for 120 days. If the project is not completed within 120 days, the funds are made available to the next person on the list. The rebate is expected to cover the first 20-30 customers. The solar electric system must provide a minimum of 10% of the annual energy needs for the home, cost less than a power-line extension, be a new system with equipment specifically designed for photovoltaic use and be installed by a qualified installer.
