Benefits to Your Business

First Alternative Natural Foods Co-op


Environmental responsibility and stewardship are important to many people. A solar system not only contributes to a cleaner and healthier environment, it presents a powerful clean energy commitment to your customers and the public.

By integrating a solar energy system into your business property, you will set your business apart from the norm, and be able to take advantage of very significant financial incentives.
Financial Incentives

  • Energy Trust of Oregon (ETO)

    See here for current incentives.

  • Other Utility Incentives

    Smaller utility co-ops which include CPI, Central Lincoln PUD and EWEB may offer incentives that range from $.50 per DC watt to $1.00 per AC watt up with varying maximums.

  • Oregon Energy Incentives Program

    Up to 30% of the installed system cost, before Energy Trust incentive.

  • Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS)

    Your business may be able to recover investments in solar systems through rapid depreciation (5 year) deductions on federal tax returns.

  • Federal Rural Energy (REAP) Grants

    Businesses in rural areas may qualify for USDA Rural Energy Grants that can provide 25% of the cost up to $20,000.

  • State of Oregon Depreciation

    Like the Federal MACRS above, you may be able to take a rapid 5 year depreciation on state tax returns.

  • Green Tags

    Green Tags are certificates that represent the environmental benefits from a specific amount of electricity from solar panels (or other renewable sources); their value is market driven.
