What is Community Solar?

Community Solar provides access to the benefits of solar energy to those who may not have suitable land or roof space for a solar array. The program reduces customers’ monthly electricity bill by allowing them to subscribe to a portion of the project and receive bill credits on their monthly electrical bill for their portion of the electricity generated.

Who benefits from the Oregon Community Solar Program?

Community Solar is expanding solar access to everyone in the Community.

  1. Project landowners benefit by receiving bi-annual rent payments, a construction bonus and those who choose to participate in the program will receive credits to go towards their utility bill.
  2. Neighbors and the wider community benefit as they can subscribe and receive bill credits to offset their utility bill. Not only is it reducing the carbon footprint of the community, but it also increases your control over your electrical bill.

Who is eligible to participate in the Oregon Community Solar Program?

Everyone can participate, property ownership is not a limiting factor of Community Solar. Most Oregon customers of Portland General Electric, Pacific Power and Idaho Power are eligible to participate in the Oregon Community Solar Program. You can participate if you are a resident, a business, nonprofit or government entity.
