Go Solar West Hollywood is a city-sponsored program to encourage property owners to go solar.
The program was developed in partnership with EnergySage to help answer your questions about solar and to make it easy to get a great deal on a solar energy system of your own.
EnergySage is an online solar marketplace that allows property owners to receive and compare multiple solar quotes first, and then decide which installer is right for them. As an unbiased solar matchmaker, EnergySage connects you with its network of over 400 pre-screened solar installers. The platform aggregates multiple solar quotes, calculates the financial merits of each offer, and then presents them back in an easy-to-understand format. You can also request quotes for energy storage alongside your solar system! EnergySage's mission is to make going solar as easy as booking a flight online.
Going solar can be very rewarding! From reducing your utility bills to protecting against rising energy costs, clean solar energy can provide significant long-term savings, whether for your home, business or multi-family property. Going solar also helps the City of West Hollywood meet its climate change goals by reducing its greenhouse gas emissions and increasing its renewable energy capacity citywide.
Solar is possible, affordable and accessible for all property types. Check out the resources below for information about solar options for single family, multi-family, condo, and commercial buildings in West Hollywood.
