1BOG (One Block Off the Grid) is the nation’s largest solar consumer advocate, dedicated to making home installations easy and affordable. For every regional campaign, 1BOG conducts a rigorous and impartial selection process to identify an ideal installer partner, based on their pricing, track record of quality installations, reliable warranties, premium products and a viable business model.
1BOG organizes interested homeowners into a large solar buying group to negotiate lowest solar group discount rates from the installer partner so that community members can enjoy the best deal for solar power without having to become solar experts themselves. 1BOG was founded in 2008 in San Francisco, California and has campaigns running in ten cities throughout the U.S. In February of 2010, 1BOG gained Series A funding from the global venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates.
