Oregon allocates $10 million to solar + storage rebate program

During the final week of Oregon’s legislative session, HB 5006, the omnibus spending bill, has allocated $10 million to the Oregon Department of Energy for Solar + Storage Rebates. This is five-times the amount the program was originally awarded in 2019.

The program serves residential customers, low and moderate income customers and low-income service providers.

“This decision represents a strong step forward in OSSIA’s mission to expand solar markets and make solar accessible for all,” said Angela Crowely-Koch, executive director of the Oregon Solar + Storage Industries Association (OSSIA).

Under the program guidelines, low and moderate income customers may receive up to 60% of the cost of the storage system and other customers may receive up to 40%, up to $2,500. Low-income service providers may receive up to 60% of the cost of the storage system, up to $15,000.

“More and more customers are requesting storage systems connected to their solar systems to provide them with back-up power,” said Mark Farrell, board president of OSSIA and Oregon sales manager for A&R Solar.
