Join the energy revolution by tapping in to clean renewable power.
Cascade Coast Solar is the premier photovoltaic system installer on the central Oregon coast, actively generating the benefits of a green energy revolution to home owners and businesses around Lincoln County and surrounding communities. We will visit your home or business and determine if your roof or ground site receives enough sunlight to warrant installation of a solar array. If it turns out that your site is appropriate, Cascade Coast Solar will guide you through the process of permitting and approval for the many incentives that homeowners and business qualify for. After 3 years of service and 46 systems installed (and counting), Cascade Coast Solar has many satisfied customers who are eager to share their experiences. Solar energy is filling in the gaps during power outages, providing energy to neighborhoods, cutting energy costs for consumers, and reducing the necessity for more toxic and dangerous methods of energy production.
What’s the environmental impact and benefit of solar energy?
It’s BIG. The average solar power system will offset 178 tons of CO2 over 30 years. That’s like avoiding 390,300 miles driven, planting 10 football fields full of trees or eliminating 174,907 pounds of burned coal. Makes you feel good, doesn't it?
The Solar Arrays that we install typically pay for themselves after 7 years. After that, your home will be receiving free electricity. With financing from local lenders, finance payments are usually less than the price consumers are paying for their electric bill. Invest in panels that will continue producing into a future where energy costs are almost certainly to grow.
What is more reliable than the sun coming up in the morning? The Oregon coast is notorious for its overcast but that doesn’t stop the photovoltaic panels from providing electricity to your home. Any energy that is beyond what your household uses is put back onto the grid and will most likely go to power your neighbor, producing the power your community consumes.
In areas where consumers frequently loose electrical service or are among the last to have their service restored, the SMA inverters we install come with a grid system disconnect so that a household can still access up to 2000 Watts if they are totally without grid power making our systems ideal for those in remote, rural places and for homes that may need the use of critical utilities during an outage such as a water pump, a refrigerator, or even a load of laundry.
If you’re a homeowner, Cascade Coast Solar will help you capture the various local utility, state, and federal incentives that you qualify for. For a business on the central Oregon coast, you may qualify for a REAP Grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture that will absorb 25% of the total cost. We will help with the paper work for these many rebates, making it simple. To benefit from Oregon tax incentives of up to $6,000.00, it’s important to sign up with Cascade Coast Solar before December 31st, 2017.
The roof mounted solar arrays that Cascade Coast Solar installs have no moving parts. These systems are likely to far exceed their 25 year guarantee. The certified, engineered Ironridge roof racking system will hold your array in place through hurricane force winds.
A home’s value increases several thousand dollars over the cost of the system immediately after install. A home with solar panels typically sells 15% faster when placed on the market. A 3.3kW system can add $17,000 to your home’s value. Because of all the benefits mentioned, a home with a roof mounted solar array just looks more attractive.
“Maximizing the value of the returns of your hard work is important. Why earn a one-percent return from a traditional savings account when you realize a significantly higher yield by investing in solar? The average return on investment on a SolarWorld solar system is between eight and 10 percent—greater than a savings account and more stable than the stock market.” – Solar World.com
