Project Information:

Jim and Salle's Place Apartments

Project partners have scoped and organized funding to support 48.3 kW of community solar capacity on the Jim and Salle’s Place Apartments. The project will be one of the first of its kind to utilize US Department of Energy Weatherization Assistance Program funding for a shared solar project. The onsite community solar project will be able to utilize the state community solar program to provide bill credits directly to the tenants, reducing their annual electricity expenses by up to $220/year. The Jim and Salle’s Place Apartments offer affordable housing for low-income residents of southeast Portland. Residents of the apartment complex will be able to subscribe to the community solar project and will receive monthly bill credits.

Customers may only participate in a project that is located in their utility's service area.



The project size affects how many customer subscriptions a project can have and how big each subscription size per customer can be. An average residential subscription size is around 4 kW.

Project Size:



There are slight bill credit differences between Tier 1 and Tier 2 projects but the overall savings are usually similar. In Tier 2 projects, both bill credits and most subscription fees will escalate on an annual basis, while these stay flat for Tier 1 projects.

Project Tier:

Based on the bill credit rates listed for a residential subscription to this project, current administration fee levels, and 8,000 kWh of annual generation. For a more customized estimate of your bill impacts, contact the Project Manager or Subscription Manager of this project.

Average Savings:

Based on rates for a typical residential customer subscription (Jim and Salle’s Low Income Subscription)
