Portland Solar Power FAQs

  • The size of the array and the price through the local installer both affect solar pricing most directly. The median cost in Oregon for a solar array is $3.57 per watt. A standard 7.3 kW panel would therefore cost about $21,106 as a median price in the state. It’s important to shop around with different installers to find the best price and option for you.  

  • Solar power can be a good long-term investment. Although upfront costs are high, you could potentially save thousands  in the decades after your solar purchase in Portland. Further, energy prices rise over time, so cutting back on energy bills from generating electricity can mean significant savings.
