Don’t rent your power. Own it.

Our solar services


Keep the lights on when the power goes out and use the energy you generate. 


Produce your own power and protect your family against rising energy costs.

Does solar really work in Portland?

Yes, it does! Here’s how.

During our long sunny summer days, your solar panels will produce more energy than your home will consume. That excess energy is sent back to the grid, and you are given credits. You can use those credits during our short winter days when your system isn’t producing as much power.

Consider it your own solar savings account.

Why A&R Solar?

Our experience

We’ve completed more than 2,300 solar installations totaling 70,000 solar panels since 2007. We’ve been at this for a while.

We're trusted

We are proud to be a Tesla Powerwall Certified Installer and Energy Trust 3-Star Contractor. We also have 5-star Yelp reviews and a list of references who are happy to talk about their experience with our team.

Our commitment to quality

Our staff works exclusively on Northwest solar installations (we’re also your neighbors). We don’t use subcontractors or call centers. In fact, the people you speak to from our team might also be employee owners.

Going solar will be one of the best decisions you make

Since our founding in 2007, A&R Solar has installed 75,000 solar panels for 2,300 homes and business owners across Oregon and Washington.

Believe or not, the Portland area is perfectly suited for solar power. During our long summer days, you’ll send extra energy back to the grid, resulting in credits with your utility that you can use during the winter months.

Our team focuses on quality and craftsmanship on each project, whether it’s a 5kW solar energy system for a home or a 500kW solar farm for an electrical utility. We work to empower residents of Portland, Vancouver, Beaverton, Hillsboro, West Linn, and beyond with the latest PV solar technology like Tesla Powerwall and our deep experience and passion for the industry.

Join the thousands of people across Oregon, including your neighbors, who have taken advantage of financial incentives to install solar. It’s a decision that benefits their pocketbook, their planet, and their community.

How will solar save me money?




Does solar work in Oregon?

Yes! Our long summer days make it perfect for solar. A program called net metering allows home and business owners to build up credits during the long summer days when solar energy systems are producing excess power. That energy gets pushed back to the grid and used by neighbors. The solar homeowner gets a credit on their electricity bill.

Our craftsmanship shows in every job

A&R Solar installs solar energy systems for homes and businesses across Oregon and Washington. We have offices and staff in Portland, Vancouver, Bend, Seattle, and the Eastern Washington area.

We have been designing solar energy systems for Northwest homes since 2007. Our system designers live here and have deep experience creating systems that maximize solar potential for each unique project.

Here are two other things that set us apart: We don’t use call centers. We don’t subcontract our electrical work or our system designs. When you talk to an A&R Solar representative, that person is an employee, perhaps even an employee owner. Ask them about their experience working for our company.

And here are the things we promise:

  • We’ll show up when we say we’re going to.
  • We’ll do what we say we’re going to
  • We’ll communicate professionally should complications arise.
