    The Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE) acknowledges and extends its gratitude to the numerous solar contractors actively contributing to the success of its solar rebate program. This post aims to help you understand the program better, guide you through rules and requirements, and explain how to become an approved contractor.

    Program Overview

    The ODOE offers a solar rebate program that encourages the use of solar energy and storage systems in Oregon. Information about the program, such as the remaining program budget and details about individual rebate amounts, can be found on the program homepage, with additional resources available for homeowners and low-income service providers.

    It’s crucial to note that contractors must submit a reservation application before beginning the construction or installation of a solar system or a paired solar and storage system to be eligible for a rebate.

    Becoming an Approved Contractor

    Contractors interested in participating in the program can sign up through ODOE’s customer service portal. If you’re a first-time user, begin by clicking on “register” to create an account. Once you’ve registered, you can sign in and complete the necessary information. Afterward, the ODOE staff will follow up to confirm your successful enrollment in the program.

    Reserving Rebates for Customers

    Once approved, contractors can use PowerClerk to reserve rebates and complete the application process. To assist contractors in using the PowerClerk system, ODOE has developed an online user guide. For any queries or concerns, contractors can reach out to the Solar + Storage Rebate Team.

    Receiving a Rebate Payment

    ODOE collaborates with the Department of Administrative Services to issue contractor rebates. This process typically takes around two weeks. Be aware that the State of Oregon requires a W-9 on file before issuing any payments. Also, ensure your business name and mailing address are up-to-date on the form.

    For quicker and cost-effective transactions, contractors are urged to sign up for electronic payments. However, bear in mind that the Oregon Department of Revenue monitors state agency payments and can place holds if the payee owes certain types of obligations to the State of Oregon.

    Additional Guidelines

    As an approved contractor, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the program to best serve your customers. An extensive FAQ document is available for further clarification.

    Remember that solar and storage installations must be installed on real property in Oregon by an ODOE-approved contractor. The rebates are given to the contractors, who in turn pass on the savings to their customers.

    For paired solar and storage systems, they must be purchased simultaneously from the same approved contractor. Stand-alone storage systems or those added to existing solar systems are ineligible. Furthermore, solar installations must meet minimum Total Solar Resource Fraction measurements and other technical criteria.

    The systems must comply with specific rules and regulations set by the electric utility, as well as other technical and programmatic requirements. These can be found in the Solar + Storage Rebate Program Oregon Secretary of State Administrative Rules online.

    Your participation and compliance as an approved contractor play a significant role in the success and benefits of the Oregon Solar + Storage Rebate Program. Thank you for your service and dedication to renewable energy in our state.
