Unleash The Power On Your Roof: #GoSolar!


Apr 2015


Unleash-H-BannerThe sun is shining and if you don’t have solar on your roof, all that clean energy is left untapped.

This is a problem that GreenTown Los Altos’s Energy Chair Gary Hedden was bent on solving. So we created GreenTown Los ALtos’s “Unleash the Power On Your Roof”, a program aimed at providing solid deals from solar vendors to increase the number of solar rooftops in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills.

Catch Your Rays. Raise Your Efficiency.

With several vendors signed up, we know that now is the time to check out the power on your roof. If you’re interested, please let us know.

Hurry! Program Runs April 1 – June 30

The program’s benefits, including access to information and a financial deal you won’t want to pass up, run from April 1 – June 30. To help educate prospective buyers, and debunk any solar myths keeping buyers at bay, we’d like to host small gatherings. For this, we’re looking for anyone who has installed solar to be a spokesperson, or what we’re calling Solar Stars, to help others through the process. If you’re interested, please let us know.

    Do not have solar now, but am interested in learning about it, selecting a vendor, and installing a system on my home in Los Altos Hills.

      Hi Ed,
      Thanks for your interest. We are a bit delayed at getting the program launched (problems with a fussy website) but it will happen in the next few days.
      In the meantime, contact me at and I can get you started.

    Is this program only available for Los Altos and Hills homes or is it open to neighboring communities as well?(I live in Mountain View).

      Tracy –
      Our Unleash the Power program is limited to Los Altos and Los Altos Hills. (As a volunteer-driven, grassroots nonprofit, we have pretty limited bandwidth.) However, go ahead and use the information on our website and if you contact one of our partners, tell them you heard about them through GreenTown Los Altos. They just might give you the promotional rate anyway. And, please, tell your friends in Los Altos and Los Altos Hills about the Unleash the Power program. #GoSolar!

    Would be great to advocate reducing solar permit fees in Los Altos. I am in the process of getting solar (5KW) on my home and was surprised it cost $502.95 for a permit. This is .10/W and pretty ridiculous.
