OSEIA creates blueprint to increase Oregon’s solar power

By Kelsey Misbrener The Oregon Solar Energy Industries Association and The Green Energy Institute released The Oregon Solar Plan, which outlines strategies to increase solar power in Oregon to enable the state to generate 10% of its electricity from solar energy in ten years.

To reach 10%, Oregon would have to install 4 GW of solar capacity, which is enough to power more than 500,000 homes.

Ensure rooftop payback does not exceed 10 years
Grow the solar workforce
Reduce soft costs
Reduce barriers to entry
Develop long-term state policy
