Launching Solarize Union County

This program has concluded. Below is a description of how if happened:

Attention homeowners! Have you been waiting for the right time to ‘go solar?’  Interested in saving money while saving energy? What about supporting your local community while installing a solar thermal system for a fraction of the price? Here at Oregon Rural Action our members have been rolling out Solarize Union County! Solarize is a community-wide bulk purchase campaign that provides a simple and affordable solution for homeowners to install solar panels on their homes.

How does it work?

We’re thrilled to announce we’ve partnered up with Union Wallowa Baker Federal Credit Union and Union County to offer unbeatable financing opportunities to help cover up-front costs of a system. By organizing a community to sign up and install solar together, we get access to wholesale prices that would not be available on the open market. After receiving the state and federal tax credits that are available, your system will be a fraction of the price. Solarize prices are good until August 31st, so sign up for a site assessment today!

Free workshops makes going solar easy and affordable

Our members have done a lot of the legwork for you, so the process is easier than ever. Attend one of our free informative workshops through this summer covering topics such as the size of system to purchase, budgeting and financing and how to get started. Click here to check out our Events page to find out when the next info session is.

Free Site-Assessments provided by Mr. Sun Solar

Attend one of our upcoming workshops and you can sign up for a free site assessment from Mr. Sun Solar. Can’t make one? That’s ok. Register on our website and we’ll get you scheduled. Mr. Sun Solar owner, John Patterson, will come to your house and provide you with all the information you need to find out if solar is right for your family.


We’ve added Solar Electric Systems in 2013

Blue Mountain Solar of Cove Oregon has been selected to provide a grid tied photo voltaic system to the program this year.   This local company has a proven record of installing quality systems with reliable service here in Eastern Oregon in the past decade.  With both federal and state tax credits available, now is the time to consider going solar.


Supporting your local economy

Both Mr Sun Solar and Blue Mountain Solar are Oregon companies based in Portland and Cove, Oregon, respectively. These contractors have pledged to train and hire local help to install these systems so that solar is a reality for Eastern Oregon for years to come. Supporting the project means more money stays in our community and supports local workers.
