It depends. If you live in an AHJ that is easy to work with and processes permit applications swiftly we can likely install your system in 2022.
The entire installation will likely take 1-3 days, depending on the complexity of the installation. The steeper your roof, the longer it will take. It will also take longer if we are installing a battery for you.

We offer rooftop solar installation; ground mounted solar installation; home electrical services like panel upgrades and service upgrades; energy storage systems and battery backup.

Highly recommended

Cascade Solar was absolutely wonderful to work with. The crew was professional, courteous, and very responsive to questions throughout the entire process. The work itself was completed quickly and our new system works as promised. Highly recommended!

Very satisfied with Cascade Solar

I received a quote from Cascade Solar through EnergySage and chose them because theirs was the lowest bid. The entire process went very smoothly from contracting to financing, to permit approval, scheduling, installation, and to the follow up. They put in the application to my utility company at a perfect time to get a $2500 incentive. Overall this is a very pleasant experience to work with Cascade Solar on this project.

Excelent Service

Tom and David from Cascade Solar were knowledgeable friendly and very helpful. They even came out on Sunday to remover the panels so that the re-roofing could start on Monday. I highly recommend Cascade Solar for all solar needs.

Our new offgrid system rocks!

We just built a new headquarters for our nonprofit organization along the banks of the Willamette River in a spot where we couldn't access the grid. The wizards at Cascade Solar helped source and install the perfect panels and battery storage system to allow us to go off the grid in style. They were skilled, insightful, responsive, and very reasonably priced. I give them my highest recommendation!

thoughtful, organized, communicative, friendly

The cascade solar team did a full design and install of a solar system for our off-grid cabin. It was a tricky project because of the remote location and lack of on site power. From start to finish they were super easy to work with, organized, communicative, and professional. Their attention to detail really set them apart from other contractors I've worked with. I loved working with a small company that really cared about their work product. I would and have recommended them to anyone. Thanks Tom and David!

Reliable, Affordable, Quality Solar

Cascade Solar did an excellent job with a recent solar install on our home. Tom and David were very communicative, personable, and trustworthy. I appreciated how we weren't dealing with a massive out-of-state business, but rather the two owners were the ones doing it all, from design to permitting to the install. We are very happy with the result, and definitely recommend them to others!
