Ready for a Group Buy for Solar?

From the NY Times Green Inc:  It’s been more than a year now since the debut of the oddly named San Francisco startup One Block Off the Grid — a company that brings together groups of homeowners with solar aspirations and delivers them as a collective to solar installers in the area, earning volume discounts for the customers and referral fees for itself.

According to Dave Llorens, the company’s co-founder and general manager, 1BOG, as the company is known, has helped with the solarization of hundreds of rooftops, many of them in California, but also in places like Phoenix, Denver and New Orleans. The company just introduced a program in northern New Jersey, marking its first East Coast foray, and it is also planning to enter San Antonio and Honolulu next, Mr. Llorens said.

“Over the course of 2009 we put in about 550 solar systems, which probably puts us on par with the top five installation companies” in the nation, he said. “We want 2010 to be the year where we bring solar to the masses.”
