"Infographic: Will solar really work in your state?"

One Block off the Grid, the San Francisco startup that offers Groupon-style discounts for solar panel installations, put together an infographic to debunk the commonly held belief that the renewable energy source only works in sunny states like California and Arizona. 1BOG offers evidence — and anecdotal quips — that even famously cloudy locales can become a leading solar city. For example, Portland has three times the number of residential solar installation as most cities.

One Block off the Grid, the San Francisco startup that offers Groupon-style discounts for solar panel installations, put together an infographic to debunk the commonly held belief that the renewable energy source only works in sunny states like California and Arizona.

1BOG offers evidence — and anecdotal quips — that even famously cloudy locales can become a leading solar city.  For example, Portland has three times the number of residential solar installation as most cities.

The infographic, which features comments from solar users, is one more way 1BOG is tapping into the power of people to promote the renewable energy source. Earlier this summer, 1BOG announced its One Nation Off the Grid program to offer group deals across 34 states, including places with few, if any, incentives for solar. 1BOG doesn’t try to downplay the disparity between states. Instead, 1BOG goes out of its way to advertise to would-be customers how each state measures up with an interactive map and encourages folks living in unfriendly solar states to contact their lawmakers and push for incentives.
