If you missed the GoSolar.LA webcast broadcast live from the LA Cleantech Incubator in downtown Los Angeles, you can view it now on YouTube! In the video representatives from Open Neighborhoods, the LA Cleantech Incubator, and REC Solar discuss the incubator program and GoSolar.LA — a regional platform to streamline and scale solar installations in greater Los Angeles.
Open Neighborhoods is pleased to announce that it has joined the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator as one of its newest portfolio companies. Open Neighborhoods plans to streamline and scale solar installations in greater Los Angeles with a proprietary online project bidding and solar comparison-shopping service for residential, commercial, and tax exempt property owners and multi-family communities in greater Los Angeles seeking to reduce utility bills with solar energy.
The company’s regional website, at www.GoSolar.LA, offers discounted rooftop solar electric and hot water installations from leading contractors, and $0 down financing programs – along with neighborhood-scale group-purchasing programs recently recognized for providing the lowest cost residential solar in the state of California.
Representatives of Open Neighborhood and the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator will be hosting a free webcast on Thursday, December 20th at 12:30pm to discuss GoSolar.LA and the LA Cleantech Incubator. Register to participate at GoSolar.LA/webcast.
