Are solar panels worth it in Vancouver?
Vancouver, WA is one of the largest cities in Washington and one of the fastest-growing. While growth increases the need for electricity, the local utility – Clark Public Utilities – is leading the transition away from dirty fuels to clean, renewable energy.
Despite the generally rainy climate in the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver is actually an optimal place to implement solar energy. The long summer days mean that lots of solar energy can be harnessed during that season, and you may be able to sell excess energy back to the power grid for credits that you can use against your energy bills in the wintertime when solar power generation is lower and energy usage is higher.
Plus, our Sunbridge Solar panels are designed so that they can harness energy even from the scattered light that is generated on overcast days, so you will be getting power on the vast majority of days.
Additionally, the solar incentives provided in the Vancouver are some of the best in the country, and those grants, rebates, and federal tax credits can be a huge help in offsetting some of the initial startup costs associated with installing a solar energy system.

What about the Clouds?
Despite being known best for the rain, Vancouver’s lengthy daylight hours in the summer make solar a terrific investment for your home or business. By being able to sell excess solar energy back to your utility provider, you will accrue credits to be used during the more cloudy months.
