Property Tax Incentive
Oregon Department of Energy
Eligible Renewable/Other Technologies:
Oregon law states that any change in real market value to property due to the installation of a qualifying renewable energy system is exempt from assessment of the property’s value for property tax purposes. Qualifying renewables include solar, geothermal, wind, water, fuel cell or methane gas systems used to heat, cool or generate electricity. This exemption is intended for end users and only applies to systems that are net metered or primarily intended to offset on-site electricity use. Systems installed on real property that is otherwise exempt from property taxation will continue to be exempt.
