99 CENTS

Sign up for solar power discount by June 30

From page A8 | May 30, 2013 |

A new program in Yolo County offers those who live or work in Yolo County a group-purchase discount for installing solar power and energy-efficiency measures in their homes. Interested homeowners use the program to pool their buying power and thereby secure significant discounts on solar power installation, energy-efficiency measures and a range of financing options.

The program, called Energy Benefits Yolo, is offered by the nonprofit ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability USA (www.icleiusa.org).

The group discount is estimated to be roughly 20 percent, though the more homeowners who participate, the greater the discount. In addition, if the group cumulatively installs 125 kilowatts or more, REC Solar will provide an additional $500 incentive to each homeowner.

The deadline to sign up is June 30.

The program also helps homeowners by taking the guesswork out of selecting a reputable vendor, as it uses certified contractors that went through a vetting and approval process. For the solar PV, the contactor is REC Solar, and for the energy-efficiency measures, the contractor is Brower Mechanical.

To participate, homeowners should sign up on the Energy Benefits Yolo website to get a no-obligation assessment: www.mygroupenergy.com/group/yolo. The onsite solar assessment is free, and the onsite energy-efficiency assessment is discounted to $99 for most homes (normally $500).

Yolo Energy Watch is helping to promote the program by giving away one free energy-efficiency assessment in a drawing June 30. Those interested should register at yoloenergywatch.org.

Yolo Energy Watch is a nonprofit partnership between Yolo County and PG&E to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy in homes and businesses in Yolo County.
