The Oregon Community Solar Program* might be the solar path for you if you rent, live in a multifamily building, lack the roof space for rooftop solar or don’t have the means to invest in rooftop solar, Through this program, residential and business customers of Portland General Electric, Pacific Power and Idaho Power can subscribe to a portion of a community solar project that is shared with other customers. These projects can be located on buildings—like businesses, government buildings, schools or churches—or free-standing in undeveloped areas. If you subscribe to a community solar project, you receive a credit on your monthly utility bill for the electricity generated from your portion of the system.
*The Oregon Community Solar Program is administered by the State of Oregon. Participation in the Community Solar Program allows customers to offset their energy usage with electricity generated from a certified community solar project.
