Two things affect the performance of solar panels, heat, which causes internal resistance and snow load that blocks light. The dominant weather pattern in Washington and Oregon is cool, temperate and with very small amounts of snow. The Pacific Northwest actually receives more solar energy than Germany, which happens to be the world leader in solar power production.
The Washington Net-metering act (SSB55101) provides some of the highest paybacks in the US for solar power. Selling back power for almost six times the amount you purchase it overcomes any area weather discrepancy. With our green loving community, heavy incentive programs and increasing need, the Pacific Northwest is set to be the solar center of this country. Don’t take my word for it, take a look at what some others have to say! Both Seattle and Portland are designated “Solar Cities.”
We are lowering upfront costs through new technology and, yes, we are aware that they are interviewing a competitor. Many in this industry, including us, believe that the market is so huge that we are all on the same team.
