Be Energy savvy and keep cool this summer while saving energy and money

An energy assessment will help you button up your home to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter. There’s no use letting that conditioned air leak out of your house once you’ve paid to get it cold or hot.

It’s super easy to see if solar is a good fit for your home. By signing up for a solar assessment, we’ll put you in touch with a qualified local professional to get you started. Your contractor will:

  • Assess the solar potential of your home and determine if your home is a good fit for solar power
  • Help you determine which incentive route is the best fit for you (see overview/samples/estimates below)
  • Provide you with a bid with estimated annual energy production and utility bill savings
  • Help you apply for tax credits and incentives
  • Provide you with maintenance and warranty details
  • If you decide to go solar, acquire all permits, install your solar electric system, and coordinate all inspections

You can learn about the cash incentives and tax credits available for solar installations on the Bend Energy Challenge website solar.
