Did you know? You can use your roof to generate electricity or to heat water for showers and laundry. Installing a solar system on your roof continues a great Northwest tradition - renewable energy.
Our Choice Energy Solar Program offers guidance, financial incentives and contractor lists for qualifying solar electricity systems.
Curious what a solar system might cost, or what the payback time might be? This website can help you calculate those figures: http://www.solar-estimate.org. Note: The PUD's residential electric rate is $0.064/kWh, so be sure to use that figure instead of the default rate in the form.
Tax credits may be available. Consult your tax advisor for rules regarding tax credits.

In partnership with the PUD and Bonneville Environmental Foundation, St. Helens High School has installed a 1.1 kilowatt solar electric system. The project educates students and teachers about the functions and benefits of solar electric power while providing clean energy to help offset a portion of the school's electric use.
