Founded as a community-based not-for-profit in 2007 by Dan Barahona, 1BOG is a San Francisco-based company that has already been awarded as one of the hottest companies in San Francisco. Due to high demand, 1BOG has expanded services to Los Angeles, New Orleans, San Antonio, Long Island, Denver, Phoenix, and New Jersey. With enough interest in the Tampa Bay area, they could be coming here next. For more information or to sign up to get solar discounts, please visit the 1BOG website and watch the videos below.

When it comes to large home improvement purchases, solar panel installation is intimidating and expensive. Even as a sustainability advocate, I don't know what to ask or how to avoid getting ripped off when looking to install solar panels — the potential stress of it all  can be a bit overwhelming (a previous experience with kitchen remodeling almost led to me divorce my husband). I really don’t want the stress or hassle from these appointment setters, salesmen, or green collar workers invading my home and confusing me with numbers, upgrades, and energy-efficient models — I just want a good, honest price.

1 Block Off the Grid is the latest in consumer advocacy groups, and will not only pick the best solar panel installer in your area, they will even negotiate discounts for you. Homeowners can then receive up to a 15% discount on installed solar panels.

When enough customers have signed up for 1BOG in a geographical area, 1BOG is able to get to work in the communities. 1BOG negotiates discounts with installers by providing a serious, educated customer base which reduces sales and marketing costs to the solar companies. And to top it all off, the 1BOG service is absolutely free to homeowners.
