Solar power FAQs

Solar power can be an excellent investment to lower your energy costs over many years all while reducing your carbon footprint. However, solar energy isn’t for everyone. Whether it’s a good investment for your home will depend on how much direct sunlight your roof gets and how much you currently spend on electricity.
The amount you can save by investing in solar power depends on your regular energy usage and how long it takes to recover your installation costs, which is unique to each household. As of April 2023, Oregon residents paid an average of $117 per month on electricity. As a result, the average savings could be as much as $1,404 per year if you invest in a system covering all of your energy usage.

Unlike traditional electricity generation, which burns fossil fuels to power your home, solar energy doesn’t emit carbon dioxide that contributes to climate change and creates pollution. Solar energy is a clean and renewable resource that uses the sun’s solar rays to power your home or business. This form of energy has the potential to significantly help the environment.
The average Oregon home needs anywhere between 20 and 27 solar panels, but the number of solar panels you’ll need to power your home depends on several factors. Your typical energy consumption, the amount of sunlight, the temperature, and how much energy you want to offset can all play a role in determining how many solar panels you need.
