SolarCity, a national provider of solar financing, design, installation, monitoring and related services, has introduced PurePower, a residential solar service, to Oregon homeowners.
SolarCity's PurePower can enable Oregon homeowners to power their homes with solar electricity and pay the same rate they were previously charged for electricity from the utility company, SolarCity says. PurePower pricing for a 3.5 kW solar system in Oregon, for instance, would start at $30 per month, with no up-front cost, on approved credit.
‘Financing has traditionally been a barrier to going green, and especially to going solar,’ says Portland Mayor Sam Adams. ‘This summer, we launched Clean Energy Works Portland, a program to remove up-front cost barriers so homeowners can do energy retrofits. Now, with SolarCity's innovative approach, Portlanders will have one more affordable way to reduce their emissions, save energy and contribute to Portland's sustainability.’
