Los Angeles-based Open Neighborhoods – co-founded by Mar Vista residents James Brennan and John Ayers - has launched a regional, solar initiative and comparison-shopping service for residential, commercial, tax-exempt property owners and multi-family communities in greater Los Angeles seeking to reduce utility bills with solar energy.
Open Neighborhoods was co-founded by local Mar Vista resident James Brenna, and the site GoSolar.LA, will provide services including information about solar rebates and incentives available throughout the region; an interactive LA County Solar Map; ratings and reviews of local solar contractors, equipment and financing options; and pre-negotiated solar bulk purchasing discounts resulting in significant savings for program participants.
GoSolar.LA has partnered with leading solar companies including environmental services provider Antea Group and local solar installers including REC Solar, PermaCity, Enfinity America Corporation, Solar Forward and SolarCon.
According to a GoSolar.LA release, participating contractors specialize in a diverse range of installations for solar electricity and solar hot water heating systems — from small and custom residential to commercial, large industrial, tax exempt and multi-family properties.
Affordable financing options are also available through the GoSolar.LA program including low-interest loans, zero-down leases, power purchase agreements (PPA), and rooftop rental programs financed by industry leaders including SunRun, SunPower, Clean Power Finance, Perlight, Tioga Energy, Wells Fargo and PNC Bank.
