Considering solar? Take these five steps before signing a contract!

  1. Determine if solar makes sense for your home using the Google Project Sunroof website that will analyze the annual hours of usable sunlight your home’s roof will receive during an average year. Large trees directly south of your home will negatively impact solar generation.
  2. Ensure you are not over paying for a solar system by collecting three bids from three different solar installers.
  3. Complete the Clark Public Utilities Solar Payback Calculator to learn the return on investment timeline for the solar bids you received.
  4. Review the Washington Solar Consumer Protection Act Checklist.
  5. No solar contractor works with or for the Utility.  If they claim to, please call or email us at 360-992-3244 or [email protected].
