SOLAR FOR MY HOME
Despite the cloudy weather, solar power is increasingly becoming more popular with homeowners in the Paciﬁc Northwest. Homeowners who switch to solar energy are becoming more environmentally friendly while saving money on their utility bills, locking in their electricity rates, and increasing their property values. If you’re considering solar in 2024, you owe it to yourself to get the best possible education on your available solar options.
Most people think that solar energy is going to be expensive, and, in past years, they would be right—traditionally, solar technology has been extremely pricey. However, in the last decade, the cost of going solar has dropped by a whopping 55%. There are also a variety of Oregon and Washington solar incentives and no-money-down ﬁnancing options available that make it easier than ever to enjoy access to clean, renewable power that puts money in your pocket and is helpful to the environment.
The federal and state financial incentives for switching to solar in 2024 are unbeatable.

IS SOLAR WORTH IT?
When it comes to solar energy, last year’s facts are this year’s ﬁction. The solar industry changes at a rapid pace, leaving prospective solar buyers reading old news when trying to make a decision. This can often get in the way of homeowners making well-informed choices about their solar energy needs.
THE COST OF ELECTRICITY
Retail electricity rates have risen drastically across Oregon and Washington in the last 10 years. The trend of utility companies continuing to raise electricity rates is unlikely to change in the near future.
According to Zillow, homes with solar energy sold for nearly 3% more than comparable homes without. That means an average home with solar in the United States sells for an additional $9,274.
An average-sized residential system has dropped from the (pre-incentive) price of $40,000 to about $18,000 since 2010. That’s a decrease of over 55% in the span of 10 years.

Germany is a world leader in solar power production, yet it’s slightly cloudier than it is here in Oregon and Washington. Much like Germany, we benefit from long summer days with mild temperatures, which are ideal conditions for maximum solar production.
