What You'll Get
Solar panels convert sunshine into power, just like millionaires convert money into hybrid batmobiles. Get green while spending less green with today's Groupon: for $99, you get $1,100 toward home solar-power panels and installation from Mimeos. This Groupon is valid for homes within Los Angeles County.
By streamlining the entire rebate process and hiring NABCEP-certified installers, Mimeos smoothes the installation process for homeowners looking to embrace solar energy and greatly reduced electricity bills. The cost of an average system depends on a variety of factors, including home orientation, roof size, and the amount of shade the property receives from overhanging tree limbs and Bob's Big Boy statues. Mimeos evaluates all these factors along with the past 12 electricity bills to design a system that will produce enough electricity to fulfill a home's needs, offering free custom quotes. Prices vary across the state ($7.34/watt average for residential installations), however Mimeos organizes group initiatives that can keep the price for most customers between $5–$5.25 per watt and can make the average home solar-panel installation for a 5-kilowatt system as much as $10,000 below the state average.
Whatever the cost of their system, homeowners can often recoup a portion of their installation costs through federal-tax credits, utility rebates, and by opening a solar-powered tanning salon in their basements. Once the installation contract is signed, Mimeos will overnight a copy of the Rebate Reservation Application to your local utility for approval before arranging for the delivery of materials. Following an installation process and inspections, Mimeos further streamlines the process by submitting the final claim forms necessary to secure a utility rebate.
