The public perception around residential solar energy systems has come a long way in Beaverton.
In a pilot program conducted in 2010, residents identified the cost of solar panel installation and procedural difficulties (permitting) as significant barriers to widespread solar adoption.
However, with a goal of Net Zero Emissions for electricity by 2035, the city has addressed these challenges by bringing state solar incentives into the local economy while streamlining a complicated permitting process.
Currently, 80% of Beaverton residents are somewhat or very interested in renewable energy solutions. Given the success of the city’s initiatives to address consumer concerns, the “silicon forest” has made installing solar easy and more affordable than ever before.
Despite having more than 200 cloudy days each year, Beaverton is ideal for installing a solar energy system. That’s because solar panels actually work more efficiently in temperate environments.
With Beaverton’s relatively cool, long summer days it’s not uncommon for solar panel production to exceed a home’s energy usage, which means solar panels can eliminate your electricity bill altogether.
But what about the winter months when solar panels produce less energy than a home consumes?
To address this very real concern, Portland General Electric offers a net metering program that credits solar homeowners for the excess energy produced in the summer. All the excess energy is then “banked” in the form of solar energy credits with PGE.
These energy credits can be applied to future billing periods, which help reduce or even eliminate an electricity bill. So depending on the size of your roof, it’s completely possible to produce 100 percent of your home’s energy.
