Why you shouldn’t go solar!!

With so many Solar companies out there trying to get your attention, it’s no wonder you haven’t pulled the trigger yet. How do you know who is telling the truth and who is taking you for a ride down the solar rabbit hole? Worst is having an unsolicited phone call when you’re trying to eat dinner with the family. Using these old school Marketing tactics on something as cutting edge as solar just doesn’t seem right. If we can now Generate Electricity harnassing the power of the sun then there has to be a better way to reach customers then making customers so upset and fed up with being harassed about going solar that the slightest mention of the topic brings a knee-jerk reaction. You want to talk about solar, is that right well let me tell you how I feel about solar. Yikes!! Since we are now in the information age and expect all the answers we are looking for to be at your fingertips it’s no wonder more people have not gone solar. The very people who are trying to get you to Go Solar are the same people keeping you from doing it.

Here at Coastal Solar, we are trying a novel idea of letting the customer reach out to us. Listening to what the customer wants and needs are then giving our customers what they ask for. How great is that? Coastal Solar

The 100th household in Ventura “solarized” through The Solarize Ventura program this week. The discounted solar installation program offered in partnership with the City of Ventura and The Community Environmental Council has been extended through August 7th, providing the opportunity for more Ventura home owners to save money on their electric bills, and generate clean electricity on their roofs.

“With discounted, fixed pricing from vetted installers and free solar education through workshops and independent consultation, we are looking to make the whole process streamlined and easier on the customer,” explained Jefferson Litten, CEC’s Director of Energy Programs.

Solarize Ventura features two local solar installers, California Solar Electric and Coastal Solar, who are both offering special discounted pricing for Ventura residents. The firms were selected for Solarize Ventura after careful evaluation and vetting by a committee of local experts.

A large component of the Solarize Ventura Program is the education that the program provides for homeowners that are considering going solar. Cathy Mims-Keyser attended a Solarize workshop before purchasing her system and explained, “The workshop that the city of Ventura had convinced us to go ahead and do solar. We were impressed with what we learned that night.”

With the program extension, Solarize Ventura is offering one final free home-owner workshop to teach Ventura residents the ins and outs of going solar. Homeowners are invited to attend the final workshop on Thursday, July 21st at The Ventura City Hall Community Meeting Room. The workshop will address the benefits of solar energy, and experts will be available to answer solar pricing, financing, and equipment questions. Interested parties may also visit www.SolarizeVentura.org or call (805) 963- 0583 x 101.

Final Workshop Date:
Thursday, July 21, 2016
6:00 – 7:30pm
Ventura City Hall Community Meeting Room 501 Poli St
