Love this idea! 1BOG (One Block Off the Grid) organizes big groups of people together who want to get solar energy, and gets them a huge discount. Homeowners looking to buy solar panels face a few problems:
The website says:
They don’t know which installer they should trust.
1BOG organizes people in a community to go through the process together. This approach has several benefits:
An organized community can buy solar in bulk, so 1BOG negotiates with installers to get impressive discounts for each homeowner in the collective. We make the process much more simple and painless, as well as use our deep solar energy expertise to educate consumers throughout the process. We offer safety in numbers, and unlike the installers themselves, our incentives are always aligned with yours."
