This report was prepared by the Washington State University Energy Program, along with Dethman & Associates in 2004. They assess the solar thermal market in Oregon through collecting data and interviews from installers and consumers, and displayed their findings in this document.
They split their findings into two phases and break down the key conclusions in bulleted points. An example of some of the findings is the solar thermal market in Oregon has been pretty much flat in the last 10 years, geographically concentrated, and the economics and solar credits of installation heavily affect the purchaser.
They include suggestions after the findings on how to increase the demand for solar thermal technology including; marketing, education, targeting and incentives.
The report also includes charts and information on the growth of solar systems in Oregon. It also introduces all the key market segments and how they can do their part for growth in the upcoming years.
