Oregon Community Solar Program
The Oregon Community Solar Program gives customers of Portland General Electric, Pacific Power and Idaho Power an opportunity to subscribe to a portion of a community solar project that is shared with other customers. These projects can be located on buildings—like businesses, government buildings, schools or churches—or free-standing in an undeveloped area. If you subscribe to a community solar project, you receive a credit on your monthly utility bill for the electricity generated from your portion of the system.
Community solar can be a great option for renters, people who live in multifamily buildings, homeowners or businesses that can’t serve their full energy needs with rooftop solar, and other customers who want to use clean energy but may not have a sunny roof of their own or the means to invest in a rooftop system.

The Oregon Community Solar Program is administered by the State of Oregon. Participation in the Community Solar Program allows customers to offset their energy usage with electricity generated from a certified community solar project.
Community Solar Development Assistance
The Oregon Community Solar program provides opportunity for community-driven solar projects that will serve local communities. Because few people have developed community solar projects before, Energy Trust has developed an incentive to help local community organizations navigate the financial and technical hurdles of a typical community solar project.
Public or nonprofit organizations interested in developing a community solar project of any size are eligible for this incentive. Additionally, private developers working on a small community solar project—up to 360 kW-AC in size—are eligible to receive the incentive.
Eligibility criteria, requirements, incentive details and process for applying are described on the application forms:
First complete the Project Enrollment Application (Form 210CS) >
Once your Project Enrollment is approved, submit the Request for Funding (Form 230RF) >
