Every now and then we have to pat ourselves on the back. We work very hard to maintain an extremely high standard of service, installs and customer support, so it means a lot to us when it gets noticed.

As of today, our team at CSE is proud to have been selected for the 2016 Solarize Ventura, Solarize Santa Barbara and Solarize Ojai/Santa Clara River Valley programs!!! Standing out in each area amongst the many new solar electric companies shows us that our 15 plus years of experience continues to pay off!

Sun-powered Solar Impulse plane crosses Atlantic

Sun-powered Solar Impulse plane crosses Atlantic! This is so very impressive.
The sun-powered Solar Impulse 2 plane arrived safely in Seville, Spain, early Thursday, after a flight across the Atlantic Ocean. The non-stop, 4,000-mile trip began in New York City on Monday and took three days and three nights (71 hours and 8 minutes) to complete.

The Solar Impulse team said this was one of the most challenging legs in its more than year-long trek around the world without using any jet fuel or emitting pollution.

It was the first-ever electric, solar and emission-free transatlantic flight, the Solar Impulse team said.

Santa Barbara community and government leaders …

Santa Barbara community and government leaders gathered Tuesday May 24th to celebrate the launch of Solarize Santa Barbara— a community-led, group-purchasing program for residential solar electric systems.

Offered by the Community Environmental Council (CEC), Solarize Santa Barbara provides local homeowners the opportunity to go solar at a discounted, group-purchase price from two local solar installers. California Solar Electric is proud to be one of the two installers vetted and chosen by a committee of local experts to provide the service to Santa Barbara residents in Southern Santa Barbara County from Gaviota to Carpinteria over the next three months.

During the Solarize program duration, CEC will host these free educational workshops covering solar technologies, energy efficiency, and financing options. Anyone interested in learning about solar is encouraged to attend:

June 2, 2016, 6:00 – 7:30pm

We Are #MillionSolarStrong
Sometime around the end of February, the millionth solar installation came on-line in the United States — a milestone that says as much about where the solar industry is going as it does about how far the industry has come.

“It took us 40 years to get to 1 million installations, and it will take us only two years to get to 2 million,” said Dan Whitten, vice president of communications at the Solar Energy Industries Association #SEIA. “This is a time to mark when the solar industry started to accelerate at warp speed.”
