Community solar One Block Off the Grid announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind solar group rebate for Arizona homeowners. The program offers a rebate to participants based on the total number of Arizona households that go solar within a 90-day period.
One Block Off the Grid will start off each eligible Arizona household with $100 in a community chest account. Each time a homeowner decides to go solar in the greater metro areas of Phoenix, Tucson, Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, Peoria, Mesa, and Sierra Vista from now until the end of March 2012, the company will place an additional $10 dollars in every account. At the end of the three-month campaign, homeowners who purchase or lease solar panels will receive a solar rebate check from the community chest.
The new group rebate model was tested in the San Diego area in 2010 and saw strong engagement there among homeowners.
