Solar for your Home

While Portland certainly endure long stretches of cloudy winter and spring days, we also enjoy lots of lengthy, uninterrupted days of summer and fall sunshine. In fact, Portland gets substantially more sun than Germany — the world’s leader in reliable, pollution-free solar energy use.

Participate in the solar revolution by yourself, with neighbors or your whole community. Own or lease a system or buy green power from your utility. Generate electricity to use in your home and receive a credit from your utility for any summertime excess. A solar water heating system can slash energy use by 15 percent or more.
