OPUC Certifies First Oregon Community Solar Projects

Oregonians can get the benefit of solar power, whether renting or owning

The Oregon Public Utility Commission (PUC) approved the first three projects to begin operation in Portland General Electric’s (PGE’s) service territory as art of the Community Solar Program at a public meeting on Thursday, February 11, 2021. Project subscribers will see their subscription charges and credits on their PGE electric bills as early as March.

The PUC approved the following Community Solar Projects:

  • Dunn Road – A 1.8 megawatt photovoltaic project located north of Sandy in Clackamas County
  • Mt. Hope – A 2.5 megawatt photovoltaic project located southwest of Molalla in Clackamas County
  • Williams Acres – A 2.5 megawatt photovoltaic project located east of Woodburn in Marion County

“This is an important milestone to enable more Oregonians, regardless if they rent or own a home, to access solar generation through projects of their choice,”

– Megan Decker, PUC Chair
