WHY SOLARIZE MATTERS

CEC envisions a future where 100% of the electricity that powers our homes, businesses, and cars is generated from clean, renewable, and local sources. In our 2007 white paper, New Energy Direction: a Blueprint for Santa Barbara County, we show that the abundant availability of sun and wind in our region can provide more than enough renewable energy to meet our needs.

Our region is a “sweet spot” for solar power — we’re blessed with the ideal combination of abundant sunny days and south-facing coastlines. CEC believes Santa Barbara county, along with solar-friendly Ventura and San Luis Obispo counties, can lead the nation in solar installations.

CEC’s Solarize program is charging the solar movement by making it easier and more affordable for people and businesses to install solar power. Our group purchasing model helps local homeowners install solar electricity through a streamlined and hassle-free process, at a discounted price. As of October 2015, we have helped 475 local homeowners go solar, bringing over 2.4 megawatts of solar power to the Central Coast. The most recent rounds of Solarize ended in June 2015, and we are currently working to schedule our next program.
