Salem Electric offers a rebate to residential customers who install solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Customers have the option of receiving a rebate or a loan; customers cannot take advantage of both incentive programs. The rebate offered is $600 per kilowatt (kW) for the first three kW and $300/kW for any additional capacity, up to a cap of 50% of project costs. In order to take advantage of this rebate, systems must be 25 kW or smaller.

System owners must apply for the rebate and be approved prior to beginning work on the system. Systems must be net-metered and meet the equipment requirements established by the Oregon Department of Energy (ODOE). System owners must use an installer certified by the ODOE. Salem Electric will conduct a final inspection and issue the rebate after the final inspection. For more information, see the program website or program brochure.
