More than 2,000 years ago, the Mojave Desert had been occupied by tribes who lived beside the immense lakes that covered most of the Mojave. In the late 1800s, the Barstow area became a mining center. With the modern Interstate Highway system, Barstow’s future of growth was assured, making it the transportation hub of the western Mojave Desert.
As part of the Mojave Desert, Barstow is a long-time proven environment for solar energy production. But high temperatures also bring high electricity bills for homeowners without solar panels. These residents can pay more than 35% above the national average for their electricity. Which, unfortunately, is the average energy cost for residents in the Mojave Desert. The good news is, Option One Solar is here to help.
The Best Solar Installation In California
Barstow is bathed in sunlight almost all year long, which is why it was chosen as the site for attractions like Solar One/Two, the first large-scale solar power plant ever made. Barstow has been providing California with solar energy since the 1970s!
The Best City For Solar
The generous sunlight in Barstow yields enough energy in one hour to provide electricity to the entire city for a year. However, the entire city is not covered by solar panels. All of us at Option One Solar are doing our best to fix that. We provide professional solar installation at no cost upfront and DIY kits for off-grid homesteaders. We are doing everything we can to bring renewable energy to our desert family.
The Lowest Energy Cost
We offer the best options for homeowners shopping for solar panels in Barstow. Federal incentives & tax credits for solar provide great investment savings. And the cost of solar equipment is getting lower and lower each year. Solar owners in Barstow typically see their systems pay for themselves in around 6 years. When you purchase a solar panel system, you create a fixed cost for your electricity for the entire lifetime of the panels, which just gets lower with time. With local utility companies, you can expect a rate increase of at least 10% each year. Instead, invest that money from the electricity bill back into your home with solar from Option One.
The Best Solar Company
When you decide that solar is right for your home, the best option is a local company that provides service and installation from people you live and work with.
Option One Solar has been voted the best company for solar installation and service, by the people and for the people—for 5 years and going. Barstow residents can support the local economy in a number of ways by going with a local business that is established and ready to provide support for your home for as long as you own it.
