Hire Electric’s “Made in Oregon” Solar Package:
- SolarWorld – The world’s largest solar manufacture has their US headquarters in Hillsboro, OR. They are now making 245 watt solar panels form cell to final product at the Hillsboro plant.
- PVPowered – Inverters come in all shapes and sizes but Bend, Oregon is home to one of the best manufactures in the industry. We’ve used all sizes of PVPowered inverters on our projects and are proud to add them into this 100% Oregon made package. PVPowered was recently acquired by inverter powerhouse Advanced Energy but they are committed to continuing the Bend manufacturing presence.
- SunStorage – Enterprise, Oregon is the gateway to the Wallowas and is now the home to a very innovative racking system solution. From utility scale ground mount, to roof mount, to solar carports and solar EV (Electric Vehicle) charging structures; they have a world of solutions.
We like to install the best quality available. We love local. Now we can do both.
Unfortunately Oregon’s tax incentives for solar are facing massive cutbacks. Let’s hope our lawmakers see the huge benefit of these manufacturing and related installation jobs in Oregon. A shortsighted cost reduction plan would kill this industry that Oregon has worked so hard to build.
