Solarize Santa Barbara  The Program is now closed.


You can go solar. We can help.

Solarize Santa Barbara is a Community Environmental Council (CEC) program that makes simple and affordable for local homeowners to go solar. Our group purchasing model helps local homeowners install solar electricity at a discounted price through a streamlined and hassle-free process. CEC’s 2011 and 2012 Solarize Santa Barbara Programs helped 82 local homeowners go solar!

The Solarize Santa Barbara program closed on September 13, 2014. Thanks to all the Solarize participants who are now saving as they power their homes with sunshine. For general questions about solar power, call Jefferson Litten, CEC’s Energy Program Manager at (805) 963-0583 x 105 or
