Featured Reviews for Solar Energy Contractors in Portland, OR
Elemental Energy
Solar Energy Contractors in Portland, OR
"The Elemental folks installed an 8.8 kilowatt solar system on our roof. They were friendly, low-key and informative throughout the process, and there was excellent planning and coordination with us, with the electrician, and with the city inspectors. I appreciate their willingness to follow up with concerns and questions, even though everything was smooth sailing after. We have only been paying the minimal fees associated with our electric bill. We've purchased a used Nissan Leaf EV and expect to be net-zero for the year, even with charging that up! I would, and do, recommend them."

What types of residential solar power systems do solar energy contractors design and install?


Solar power systems are part of the growing energy efficiency trend. You may be wondering, what is solar energy, exactly? Solar energy is energy that comes from the sun, and is then converted into electricity and/or utilized for heating air or water.

The most common types of alternative energy systems for the home are solar electric, solar water heating and wind power systems. Solar professionals can help with everything from installing solar skylights to implementing complete solar energy systems.

Let’s say you want a solar electric system for your home. An off-grid system basically consists of solar panels and battery banks. These battery banks store the sun’s energy so you can use electricity at night or on a cloudy day. This system is designed to keep household electricity running for about two or three cloudy days; longer cloudy periods require a backup generator. To install an off-grid system, you’ll want to hire a certified Oregon solar energy contractor. You can find more solar energy contractors in Vancouver, Gresham, Bethany, Beaverton and Hillsboro.

Along with off-grid solar, wind and hybrid energy systems that include batteries and backup generators, there are also grid-tied solar and wind operations. Grid-tied systems are attached to your Portland, OR utility company so if you produce more energy than you use, your meter goes down and you build up energy credits.

Installing solar skylights can save electricity. Sun tunnel skylights are tubular daylight devices that capture sunlight through domes on your roof. Attached to these domes are highly reflective tunnels that draw natural light down into closets, hallways and stairways.
