Brighten Solar – Our Local Energy Allies

It has been over two years since the idea of EcoLawn was conceived, and it has since grown into a healthy, thriving business. The road to get to where we are today has been full of learning, growing, fun times along with the trying times, and lots of surprises along the way!

It’s always extra special when we we find other young entrepreneurs in the green industry, having a similar experience of building a business here in Santa Barbara. We met a powerful team at Earth Day 2015, Marine Schumann and Jeremy Favier, founders of Brighten Solar. Brighten Solar is a Santa Barbara based solar company that provides solar electric solutions to homeowners and businesses interested in saving money on their electricity bills, take control of their power supply and help protect the environment. Brighten is making strides in bringing solar energy to the Central Coast and we are excited to show our support for their vision and mission!

New California State Turf Removal Rebate Program

In August, the State of California’s Department of Water Resources rolled out the ‘Save our Water’ Rebate Program for removing turf and replacing it with landscapes that require little water at California single-family residences. Eligible households can receive up to $2 per square foot of turf removed, up to a maximum of $2,000.

The $24 million program budget is expected to support the conversion of more than 10 million square feet of turf, or approximately 20 percent of the statewide goal of 50 million square feet of turf.

While the Program does not include rebates for synthetic grass, it does offer rebates for low water use, drought-tolerant or California native plants. Rebates are also available for food-producing trees, shrubs, vines and perennial plants.

For more information, visit the ‘Save our Water’ website here.
