Energy from the sun can be directly converted to electricity using solar cells, also known as photovoltaics or PVs. Today's solar electric systems have 20 to 25 year warranties, are pollution free and can be used to offset your utility power or as stand-alone power for remote applications. The down side to this technology is that it costs three to five times more than utility power.
CPI has developed an incentive program for those wishing to harness power from the sun. The rebate amount is $500 per kW (maximum $3000) for residential applications. The system must be installed or verified by a State of Oregon certified contractor and qualify for the Oregon State tax credit. Rebates depend on funding availability.Solar installations must be pre-approved on a first-come, first-served basis.
Customers who install a residential PV system may also be eligible for our net metering program where you can sell power you don't use back to us.
