About SolarUP San Gabriel Valley
Cities, employers, and non-profits throughout the San Gabriel Valley have come together this fall to spread clean energy and fight climate change by securing group discounts on solar systems for homeowners throughout the region. By purchasing solar as a group, homeowners can expect pricing up to 20% below market. Participants can also get neutral information on their clean energy options at free solar workshops and webinars.
About Our Process
Why are you doing a group buy?
Pick My Solar, along with our community partners are dedicated to helping homeowners adopt smart home energy solutions in a comfortable and transparent manner at the best price possible. By doing a group purchase, Pick My Solar is able to negotiate extra competitive rates with the collective buying power of a large group.
Does Solar Actually Save Money?
There are over one million rooftops with solar today - and over 70% strictly went solar for financial reasons. The average homeowner in the San Gabriel Valley with a 6kW system would save $58,000 over the lifetime of the installation. On top of that, you can own your solar with a no money down, low-interest loan starting at 2.99%. This results in payments each month lower than what your current electric bill is.
Why Should I go SOlar Through SolarUP Instead of on My Own?
With SolarUP, homeowners can know they are getting a great value in their solar system. The prices secured in this community group purchase program are over 20% below market prices. These prices include low-interest loans, so that homeowners can benefit from the added home equity that solar provides. Plus, with SolarUP homeowners have an independent expert on solar who can answer questions as they consider their equipment options.
How Does the SolarUP Process Work?
After enrolling on our website, one of solar representatives will get in touch with you. Solar is not like a car where one model fits all. Every roof has different pitches and orientations and every homeowner has different electricity needs. There are pre-selected equipment and pricing options that can be found here, but the system does need to be sized and designed - customized to your home. We do this by going over your project requirements during a quick 15-minute call with a SolarUP representative, followed up by you sending over your power bill for analysis. That's it. From there we design the system and provide the bids on our website. Our solar experts are available for any questions or recommendations.
Do I Have to Pay Cash?
No, you don't. Low interest loans starting at 2.99% are available from our solar financing partners. That means a new solar power system is now accessible for every homeowner with no big out of pocket costs. You simply switch from paying a big monthly electric bill to paying off your home solar loan, adding more equity to your home each month.
How Do I Know the Equipment is High Quality?
The SolarUP team has worked on thousands of solar projects and reviewed detailed reports by third party research experts to select the highest quality solar modules, inverters, and racking providers. With the equipment narrowed to only top-tier providers, homeowners can focus their personal research to the top-tier choices in this group buy.
Is a community group buy similar to community solar?
Community solar is very different than a community group buy. Community solar is when members buy into a local solar farm. These programs are still figuring out their niche and don't have the same savings as rooftop solar. With a group buy, each resident is getting their own solar system.
