One Block Off the Grid, a community solar group, is offering a unique rebate program to Arizona homeowners. The rebate is offered to participants based on the total number of Arizona households that go solar within a 90-day period.
The group will credit each eligible Arizona household with $100 in a community chest account. Each time an eligible homeowner goes solar in the Grand Canyon state, the company will add an additional $10 to each account. At the end of the three-month program, homeowners who purchase or lease solar panels will receive a solar rebate check from the community chest.
The rebate offer is available to homes in the greater metro areas of Phoenix, Tucson, Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert, Peoria, Mesa and Sierra Vista.
One Block Off the Grid, which calls itself the Groupon of solar, says its membership has grown 98.4 percent in the past two years due to the increase of utility bills and major outages this past September.
