Local Homeowners Benefit From Discounted Install Costs And Impartial Advice Buying Solar Panels

November 8, 2010 – San Francisco, Calif., – One Block Off the Grid (1BOG), the largest national solar group discount company, today announced a new Coachella Valley program to offer homeowners relief from high electricity bills. By organizing homeowners interested in home solar, One Block Off the Grid can offer a significant group discount through pre-selected installation company HelioPower. Designed to make going solar easy and affordable, One Block Off the Grid’s program provides free, impartial advice and education about going solar and offers support through every step of the process.

“This is our second Coachella Valley solar group discount program with HelioPower,” said Dave Llorens, CEO 1BOG. “Last year, we helped almost 40 homeowners make the switch to solar by making the process easy and offering a great fixed price. We’re excited to see how many more people can benefit this year.”

Rancho Mirage homeowner Cecile Morgan went solar through last year’s program. “I liked that 1BOG did the leg work and answered my questions. The system wiped out 100 percent of my electric bill. It makes me feel better about the environment, and I like that the system will pay for itself soon and add value to my home.”

The 1BOG Coachella Valley solar program is available now to homeowners throughout the entire Coachella Valley area until February 8, 2011. For more information or to sign up for free, visit https://SolarCoachellaValley.1BOG.org.
