This GoSolar initiative is such a terrific idea. Did everyone see the L.A. Times article yesterday (8/2/09)? The collective buying group, One Block off the Grid (1BOG.org) is currently running a campaign in Los Angeles. 1BOG has negotiated a $6.05 per kilowatt hour rate for their campaign, and would love to compare notes with our group. I viewed their webinar which was long but very informative, especially the Q & A. Then I called their offices, talked to Matt and Jonathan, and asked whether our organization, GoSolar, was coordinating with them (they said no).
Would it be a good idea for GoSolar to combine our efforts with theirs--what do you think? Solar City is also their installer; and their goal is to have 75 ppl signed up by Aug. 15th, with contracts signed with Solar City by Oct. 31st if not before. They also have a fun web map detailing the spots throughout L.A. where ppl have expressed interest in installing solar. Best, Rachel Lee
