PURE Energies Teams With WWF to Accelerate Adoption of Residential Solar and Combat Climate Change

Visitors to the WWF Website Can Now Use the One Block Off the Grid Online Solar Marketplace to Choose a Residential Solar Power Savings Plan and Support WWF's Efforts to Empower Americans to Reduce Their Carbon Footprint With Clean Rooftop Solar Energy

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - December 05, 2013) - PURE Energies has teamed up with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to launch a new program to help Americans lower their household energy costs and reduce their personal impact on climate change. Starting today through September 2014, for each homeowner who signs up for solar through the One Block Off the Grid (1BOG) online solar marketplace via WWF's "Renewable, It's Doable" website, 1BOG will give WWF up to $1,000 to support its global conservation programs.

"We are thrilled to be working with WWF to help their supporters benefit from solar energy. We believe that by adding solar energy to the proactive carbon-reduction measures a WWF supporter can take, we will see a new level of tangible, positive activism by a group already dedicated to fighting climate change," said Chris Stern, VP of business development for 1BOG and parent company Pure Energies Group. "Pure Energies offers a wide variety of residential solar power solutions across the United States, so WWF supporters can use 1BOG and know they will get the best possible deal on solar power for their home."

1BOG's online marketplace empowers homeowners to go solar, save on their household energy costs, and reduce the carbon footprint in their communities. Visitors to RenewableItsDoable.org can connect with 1BOG solar specialists, who will help them compare the offerings of a wide range of residential solar providers in their area and sign up for the best solar power plan available. The 1BOG solar specialists take into account factors such as location, energy usage, size of their home, and available tax incentives. They also provide detailed financial assessments to show homeowners potential energy bill savings along with projected CO2 emission reductions.

"With rooftop solar more affordable than ever, making the switch to renewable energy is a simple way people can do their part to address climate change and reduce their impact on our planet," said WWF Director of Renewable Energy Outreach Keya Chatterjee. "By working with 1BOG to connect homeowners with installers, we are hoping to make it even easier."
