Homeowners interested in adding solar energy to their households should take note: This year's drive to Solarize Ojai Valley is under way and looking for participants.
The annual group-purchase program, aimed at increasing solar power in Ojai Valley, began Aug. 1 and will continue through Oct. 31.
This is the fourth year for Solarize Ojai Valley, which has helped 41 local homeowners go solar in the course of its previous seasons. “Last year's program was our most successful so far,” said April Price, solarize program manager for the Community Environmental Council (CEC) in Santa Barbara. “We had 24 people sign up, the highest number yet.”
