We used Smart Solar Energy out of Medford Oregon to get solar panels installed on my home. They were referred to us by a friend and Jordan was the salesperson who helped us. He was very knowledgeable and explained all the pros and cons of going solar. In the end, the pros outweighed the minimal cons and helped my wife and I make the decision to go solar. The pricing was very competitive and the installation was done professionally. We always felt like we were being kept in the loop with them. They even checked back in to see how we were doing after the installation. Overall, we’re very happy with our decision and are glad to be saving some money!

I care about saving money. I care about the investment known as my home. Working with Smart Solar Energy has been such a pleasure! As someone who cares about the environment, it’s important to me to make sure the company I go with feels the same way. They did a very thorough job and were careful to make sure I was aware of what the next steps were in the installation process. The process of getting the roof surveyed and getting solar panels was pain and stress free. I highly recommend Smart Solar Energy out of Bend Oregon because of the quality and respect they provided to me in this process of getting solar panels on my roof. As Oregon is progressing towards renewable energy, I’m glad Smart Solar Energy is the team I'm with. They work with you and for you. I highly recommend!

The search for solar is a daunting and scary task. With so many choices and so many options it makes it tough to decide which direction to go. Everyone is looking to make your money. Thankfully, I came across Smart Solar Energy in Portland, Oregon. The salesperson was incredibly honest and straightforward. The process was handheld all the way through till the end and they dealt with all my senseless worries and any problems that occurred extremely professionally and quickly. I recommend them to any and everyone that asks me about the solar on my home. Oh, and the work was done very nicely, panels look great, crew was very clean, and my place was left spotless after all was said and done. Highly recommend Smart Solar Energy to anyone looking to go solar!

After almost 2 years of research and multiple solar power company interviews, none of them compared to Smart Solar Energy. They were very professional and thorough. I didn’t feel pressured anytime during the process. The solar consultant understood my needs and some of the headwinds I was facing with such a long term commitment. The fact that their installation company installed more solar in Oregon and Washington than anyone else, combined with the high quality panels made my decision that much easier. The installation went flawless even though some uneventful weather delayed it. The entire process from start to finish took about 40 days. I highly recommend that Smart Solar Energy out of Longview, Washington be one of your finalists when it comes to your solar energy needs.

Just had my solar installed last week! After a year of research and quotes from companies, reviews, systems, material, panels used I finally decided on Smart Solar Energy out of Salem Oregon. Boy did my research payoff. Jordan the salesman explained everything. He didn't waste my time by trying to push me in a direction I wasn't interested. He was knowledgeable and helped me come up with a plan that fit best for what my wants and needs were. Then it moved to my project manager. He was there to explain where we were in the process and ensure it all was taken care of. Install day came. They did a great job and it looks great. They explained what they were doing throughout the process and how it all works together. After install they contacted me to explain how to monitor the solar being produced.

Are you ready to make the smart switch to green energy? Let’s talk.

Life is full of tough decisions.

We just think switching to solar in Hillsboro doesn’t have to be one of them…

We’ve all heard about the need for clean, renewable energy. Unfortunately, the way that most electricity is currently produced is expensive, dirty, and unsustainable. These are serious issues. That’s why we’re dedicated to providing the city of Hillsboro with a complete solar solution that’s easier to use and more affordable than ever.

Here’s how it works:

First, we’ll perform one of our proprietary Solar Audits to confirm whether or not your property is a good candidate for solar. If it is, one of our engineers will produce a computer based design of your home with your solar panels. We understand that each property is different so we go to great effort to insure your system is unique to your specific solar energy needs. Once the assessment is complete, Smart Solar Energy will obtain all necessary permits and install the system on your property. A certified electrician will then connect it to your existing meter. We will then arrange to have the city of Hillsboro come and install what we call a net meter.  A net meter spins in both directions letting you know when you’re consuming electricity and when your solar system is putting it back into the power grid.

You’re probably thinking, “Solar is expensive in Hillsboro. How do I pay for it?” You’re right. Traditionally, solar technology has been extremely expensive. But over the past ten years the price of switching to solar has dropped by a whopping 65%. What’s more, with federal and state solar incentives at an all-time high, you can actually get paid thousands of dollars to go solar in Hillsboro with little to no upfront investment. Smart Solar Energy makes it easier than ever before for people in Hillsboro to own solar, all while putting an end to your monthly power bill. And instead of using fossil fuel generated electricity that is harmful to the environment, solar energy is completely clean and sustainable. The bottom line is that with Smart Solar Energy people in Hillsboro can enjoy risk free access to renewable power that puts money in your pocket and is helpful to the environment.

Washington and Oregon Solar Tax Incentives

Solar incentives improve your annual savings by drastically reducing your solar panel costs.

Whenever you get solar for your home or business, you can take advantage of Battery Backup incentives, Energy Trust of Oregon incentives, and Federal Solar Tax Credit incentives, all while increasing the value of your property by nearly 3%!
The fact of the matter is that people in the Pacific Northwest have the opportunity to take advantage of incredible financial benefits when switching to solar. People are reducing their electric bills and helping the environment by installing solar panels on their home or business.
