The Community Environmental Council’s (CEC) Solarize Santa Barbara program is underway and will be running through August 30th to help homeowners install quality solar energy systems at affordable prices. Over the past seven years, CEC has helped over 657 homeowners install solar energy systems. CEC has partnered with two local installers, Brighten Solar and California Solar Electric, who offer reduced prices for the Solarize program duration, assuring that homeowners get the best price for a quality solar system. New this year is an energy storage option – homeowners can add a battery system so that energy generated from solar panels can be discharged when electricity prices are higher in the evening.
CEC is partners with the Cities of Goleta, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria and the County of Santa Barbara.
