One Block off the Grid (1BOG), a consumer advocacy group for residential renewable energy, and SolarCity, a national provider of solar power system design, financing, installation, monitoring and related services, have created a broad community purchase program, extending affordable financing options on residential solar systems to residents of the entire San Francisco Bay area.
SolarCity/1BOG program participants are eligible to receive 25% off the retail cash price of a home solar system and a comprehensive design and installation package that includes monitoring and energy audit services. Participants who choose to finance the installation through SolarCity's SolarLease option are eligible to receive their first three months free by signing up through 1BOG.
As part of the 1BOG program, SolarCity is offering participants free SolarGuard energy monitoring and a free home energy audit. Participants must register at www.1BOG.com before Jan. 31, 2009.
