Oregon Solar Incentive Program

Capacity for the Oregon Solar Incentive Program will be distributed by Oregon Administrative Rule initially through a lottery process and then through a first come, first served process until the capacity limit is reached for the current reservation period. We will e-mail you when your reservation is approved and provide your reservation start date. Existing net metering customers cannot be enrolled in or convert to the Oregon Solar Incentive Program.

A deposit is required, but it will be refunded with Pacific Power’s first solar payment to you. You must meet the following deadlines or your deposit will be forfeited:

  • Interconnection Application submitted within two months of your reservation start date.
  • Solar system must be fully operational within 12 months of your reservation start date.

Here’s what you’ll need to complete your online Capacity Reservation Application to reserve your place in the Pacific Power Oregon Solar Incentive Program.
