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.

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
