There are a few things that make solar very viable right now in Oregon.
1. Net metering
2. Great tax credits and incentives
3. If you haven't heard yet.... Yes! Oregon has enough sun to make solar viable.
Net metering is the game changer that makes Solar very viable in Oregon. Net metering allows you to send excess power back into the grid and get credits for it. This allows you to "bank' credits on sunny summer months that you can use on rainy winter months.
Incentives and tax Credits can cover up to 70% of the cost of Residential systems and up to 85% of the cost for Commercial systems.
Oregon has a better solar resource than Germany, one of the biggest solar markets in the world. Our long sunny summer days produce a great deal of solar and due to net metering, (Explained above) we can make excellent use of our great Solar summers.
