Power Hour | Homegrown Renewables: Community Solar

September 3, 2019

$65 – $75

This year for Earth Month (and beyond), we’d love to see our community take action in a multitude of ways to secure a healthy climate future. A super easy and convenient way to take action is to sign up to get your electricity from renewable solar energy that is produced right here in Oregon through Oregon’s Community Solar Program. We’ve put together this event so that you can learn about the program and find out how you can sign up for the program.

Oregon’s Community Solar Program has projects coming online this year for Pacific Power customers! Community solar allows subscribers to benefit from solar without installing panels on their own roof. Individuals, businesses, and organizations can subscribe to a central, off-site project and receive the energy benefits for their portion of the project on their current Pacific Power bill*.

This opportunity allows households that have traditionally been underserved by solar energy such as renters and those who live in multifamily residences to invest in clean, renewable energy without barriers such as not owning your home, high up-front costs, or having a shady roof. The added bonus is that you will pay less for the renewable energy than your current electricity rates! Additionally, income-eligible households can save up to 40% off the cost of their electricity.

Come learn more about Oregon’s Community Solar Program! You will see where projects are being built in Oregon and how to subscribe!

Right now, through Sunday, May 15th, Oregon Shines will donate $25 to TEC for each community solar subscription. It’s a win-win for our community!

*If you are a CEC customer learn more about their programs here.
