The Time to Act is Now!
Cowlitz PUD is one of the few remaining power companies still participating in the Washington solar incentive program at its maximum rate of 54 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh). As long as we use Washington made components, the PUD will pay you 54 cents for every kWh your solar panels generate. To give you an idea of how much that is, you’re paying the PUD around 7 cents per kWh for the electricity you purchase from them.
Based on a recent conversation with Cowlitz PUD, they will stop accepting new projects soon. At the time of our conversation the PUD told us they expect to accept 80 more projects and then they’ll shut the program down.
