PORTLAND, OREGON – Smart Solar Energy, a new Portland-based solar energy service provider, is offering a new, customer-centric brand of exceptional residential and commercial solar energy service to Oregon and Washington homeowners and commercial property owners. Solar energy is the fastest-growing form of renewable energy, and solar production is expected to grow by more than 100% over the next five years. Going solar is more affordable than ever, and Smart Solar Energy aims to provide educational resources for Pacific Northwesterners about the benefits and cost-savings of solar panels. Smart Solar Energy offers solar cost calculators and free home solar audits in Oregon and Washington to allow homeowners to make a well-informed choice about switching to solar.
Smart Solar Energy was founded by Jordan Showers, a Portland entrepreneur with a long history of developing trusted relationships with clients. Before founding Smart Solar Energy, Showers spent a decade leading sales teams in the home security and enterprise SaaS industries. Showers founded Smart Solar Energy on the belief that every homeowner should be able to enjoy the cost-savings and self-sufficiency that green energy provides.
“We are excited about the opportunity to serve Oregon and Washington homeowners with the best solar service in the Pacific Northwest,” said Showers, CEO of Smart Solar Energy. “Switching to green energy now is the smart choice. The current incentives available to those who install solar panels are unbeatable. At Smart Solar Energy, we have done all the research, and we share all of our insider knowledge about solar, so that our customers can become solar experts who feel confident in their decision to make the switch to clean power. Every Smart Solar Energy customer also benefits from the best service, warranty, and labor guarantees in the northwest, because customer satisfaction is our highest priority.”
Homeowners in Oregon and Washington as well as commercial property owners benefit from valuable solar incentives that dramatically decrease the cost of going solar. Government-sponsored solar incentives in Oregon and in Washington are among the best in the country. Washingtonians who install solar on their home or commercial business do not pay any taxes on the purchase of their solar panels, reducing the overall cost of solar panels by $2,000 on average. Oregonians who install solar benefit from an incentive from the Energy Trust of Oregon. Customers of Portland General Electric (PGE) and Pacific Power can take advantage of a cash rebate that goes directly toward the cost of a solar integrator and reduces the overall cost of a solar system. Additionally, solar customers in every state benefit from a solar tax credit from the federal government. The federal solar incentive reduces the barriers to entry of purchasing solar by a 26% tax credit. There is no ceiling on the Federal Solar Investment Tax Credit. Only solar systems installed in 2021 will qualify for the federal solar tax credit at the 26% rate. In 2021, the credit will be reduced to 22%, and further reduced to 10% in 2022.
Smart Solar Energy encourages all Oregon and Washington homeowners to do their research on solar before these tax credits change in order to get the best possible discount on their home solar system. To help homeowners make the smart choice about solar, Smart Solar Energy prides itself on maintaining a robust library of solar energy resources, including videos about solar energy, e-books on solar energy topics, a solar energy blog for the latest news in solar, cost guides for Oregon solar installations and cost guides for Washington solar installations. Smart Solar Energy also offers free home solar audits for any residents of Washington and Oregon. Solar audits can be conducted in-person, respecting social distancing guidelines, or virtually.
