Go solar with confidence
Living and working in Hillsboro, Oregon, has its perks. For starters, it’s the number one green-power community in America. That’s because Hillsboro voluntarily purchases more than 1.7 billion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power each year, which leads the nation, and represents 63.7% of all power purchased.
Having set its sights on 75 percent green power by 2035, Hillsboro homeowners are realizing that installing solar panels can help realize their sustainability goals. With Oregon solar incentives on the federal, state, and utility level, the cost of installing solar is now more affordable than ever.
Solar panels in Hillsboro are a great way to reduce energy bills, add value to your home, and help the city realize its goal of 75% green power by 2035. Thanks to long summer days in the Pacific Northwest, solar panel production often exceeds a household’s energy usage. That means solar panels can eliminate your electricity bill altogether.
Additionally, both Portland General Electric and Pacific Power offer net metering programs that will credit you for your excess solar panel production. That means the power from your solar panels is never wasted.
A solar home will always use electricity from its solar energy system first, while excess energy is “banked” in the form of solar energy credits with your utility. These energy credits help reduce billable consumption in future billing periods. Most customers will accumulate energy credits in the summer months and begin using any available energy credits in the fall/winter.
