Our commitment, as a full-service provider, is to offer you quick installations—usually within 1-2 months—with superior customer service at an affordable cost. If you’re still on the fence about the viability of Portland’s solar industry, we want to share the biggest reasons we find Portland a key city built for solar savings.
Utilities and Net Metering— Net metering is a specialized service utility companies may offer, and in the state of Oregon it is required. With this policy in place, it means any energy you produce over your usual production is sent back to the grid and redistributed to others in need. At the end of the month, the excess energy you’ve generated and shared carries over as credit toward your next month’s bill.
Solar Panels and Property Tax— Solar panels can add value to your home and, in certain states, this extra value counts toward your total estimation when paying property taxes. Oregon exempts solar panels from that process—you add extra value without paying extra property taxes.

Investing in clean energy saves you on your monthly bills and improves the value of your home. Once you make the choice to own your power, we make it easy to start with exclusive financing options.
With BluePower Plus+, you gain access to a plan providing a long-term return coming from owning your system alongside the best financing aspects of a solar lease—also called a power purchase agreement (PPA). It starts with getting your system installed with 18 months of free solar power.
Our SmartStart program helps you save money from day one and over the first five years of your solar system’s lifespan. You will start with a low-cost, promotional payment from your lender for the first 18 months. After the promotion ends, Blue Raven Solar will send you a check for 42 months as a rebate to keep your monthly payment consistent.
Call to see which option works best for your monthly finances to power your home with solar energy.
With the solar industry expanding and innovation skyrocketing to meet the need, solar panels and associated system equipment are reaching new, affordable prices—making now one of the best times to invest in renewable energy.
Your solar system will be customized to match your energy needs and financial situation, and we offer a 25-year manufacturer warranty and other guarantees like a production guarantee and a 10-year workmanship warranty for peace of mind over the life of your system.
Having a solar system on your Portland roof gives you the power to turn sunshine into electricity to power your home. Photons from the sun strike your high-quality, monocrystalline, black solar panels and activate the electrons in the photovoltaic cells—creating a circuit—which inverters then route into your home as electricity.
Burning fossil fuels expels tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which worsens the greenhouse effect causing our global climate change. With solar power, you reduce the demand for energy produced by fossil fuels, making greenhouse gas emitting energy sources a less attractive option in the electricity industry.
The utility company essentially rents you the right to keep your lights on. They also raise their prices by an average of 1.8% every year. When you invest in solar power, not only do you take control of your power, but the amount you pay on your monthly loan remains steady. By installing clean energy on your roof and taking advantage of the incentives and rebates, you can avoid most of those rising power prices.
Every step in our process is designed to keep you up-to-date about which options fit your situation. We consult with you about the personalized design and proposal, work through all the permitting and proper licensing paperwork, and then it’s on to installation, inspection, and energization.
