Solar incentive and tax credit changes in 2014
Builders interested in providing solar technologies for home buyers should be aware of 2014 changes in Energy Trust residential incentives and the Oregon Department of Energy Residential Energy Tax Credits for solar electric systems.

The following changes went into effect January 1, 2014:
  • Energy Trust now offers separate incentives for residential customer-owned and third-party-owned (leased) systems.
  • Energy Trust incentive caps increased for residential customer-owned systems in both Portland General Electric and Pacific Power territories. Additionally, the per watt incentive rate has increased for customer-owned systems in PGE territory.
  • The Oregon Department of Energy reduced the Residential Energy Tax Credit from $2.10 per watt to $1.90 per watt. The project cap of $6,000, or 50 percent of cost, remains the same.
 2014 Energy Trust residential solar electric incentives
Incentive Rate Project Maximum Incentive Rate Project Maximum
PGE Residential Solar Electric Incentives:
Customer-owned $1.00/watt $10,000 $0.75/watt $5,000

Happy Holidays and Generators

If you leave your homestead during the Holidays, remember to set your auto gen start to auto! You want your batteries to be happy when you get back so the lights come on. We've had customers come back to flat batteries because the switch was in manual off, and other customers come back to an empty fuel tank because they were charging when they left, forgot to switch to auto and the generator ran itself out of fuel :(

This one is an 80 kW John Deere turbocharged diesel with plenty of fuel. Large or small, Willpower will get you the energy you want!

Happy Holidays

Solar Basics

Solar Efficiency is determined by the Total Solar Resource Factor (TSRF) at a given location. Solar Collectors gain their maximum efficiency and power output under full direct sunlight. Maximum efficiency and return on investment (ROI) of a stationary PV system is achieved when solar panels are oriented between Southeast and Southwest at a 15º to 45º tilt, and experience no shading from trees, buildings or other objects throughout the day. A roof with an east-west peak and a south face makes an ideal and cost-effective location for a solar array.

Pole, ground mount and pole mounted trackers are also popular solutions.

If you think you have a suitable site for solar power, Willpower Electric, LLC will be happy to make an accurate assessment for you. We will determine your anticipated annual solar power production from the available space, calculate the TSRF, and accurately predict the expected annual savings on your power bill.

Willpower Electric, LLC’s design process includes obtaining Electrical Permits, Energy Trust Incentive Reservation, and Oregon Department of Energy Residential or Business Energy Tax Credits when applicable. We also provide the necessary documentation to receive the 30% Federal Renewable Energy Tax Credit for businesses or individuals.

Installation and follow through include system commissioning, final inspections by local Building Department and Energy Trust, a complete and bound owner’s manual, training, and an unconditional 2 year warranty on materials and workmanship in addition to manufacturer’s warranties on inverters, solar panels and balance of system components.

Let us know your questions.
