PV Central To EHOP Showcase Home

Enterprise Home Ownership Partners (EHOP), a program sponsored by Enterprise Community Partners that provides affordable housing to low- and moderate- income first-time home buyers, has showcased the first house retrofitted with photovoltaic panels, ceiling and under-floor insulation, and a tankless water heater through the new Green Grant program designed for homeowners in unincorporated East Los Angeles.

"Many homeowners are quite willing to install photovoltaic units – but the cost is simply prohibitive," comments Los Angeles County Superintendent Gloria Molina." Through this program, we hope to eliminate that financial impediment and get more homeowners to"go green.'"

After a qualified resident has applied and been allotted a Green Grant, the home is inspected to determine whether the solar panels, ceiling and under-floor insulation or the tankless water heater would offer the most energy-efficient benefit.

This installation will mark the 50th solar installation completed overall by Enterprise in the Los Angeles region, the company says.
