H.B. 2618 of 2019 established the Solar + Storage rebate program and allocated $2 million to the Oregon Department of Energy to administer it. Incentives are available for residential solar + storage systems, with higher rebate amounts available for qualified low-income residents, and those ineligible for an incentive from their utility. Rebates are paid directly to the program-approved contractor who installs the equipment, not the customer. 

Solar PV System Rebates:

  • Residents eligible for a utility incentive: $0.20 per watt DC, up to 40% of net cost or $5,000, whichever is less
  • Residents not eligible for a utility incentive: $0.50 per watt DC, up to 40% of net cost or $5,000, whichever is less
  • Low- or moderate-income residents: $1.80 per watt DC, up to 60% of net cost or $5,000, whichever is less
  • Low-income service provider: $0.75 per watt DC, up to 50% of net cost or $30,000, whichever is less

Energy Storage System Rebates:
  • Residents: $300 per kWh of installed energy storage capacity, up to 40% of net cost or $2,500, whichever is less
  • Low-income residents: $300 per kWh of installed energy storage capacity, up to 60% of net cost or $2,500, whichever is less
  • Low-income service providers: $300 per kWh of installed energy storage capacity, up to 60% of net cost or $15,000, whichever is less

Rebate requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis for complete applications. Incomplete applications will not be approved nor funds reserved until missing items/information are provided. In a calendar year, at least 25% of available rebate dollars will be reserved for systems for low- or moderate-income residential customers and low-income service providers.​
