Solar Optimum Joins Santa Monica's Prominent List of Preferred Solar Installers.

LOS ANGELES, CA — January 11, 2017 —Solar Optimum, Inc., is pleased to announce that it is now included on the Preferred Solar Installer list for the City of Santa Monica.  The comprehensive list of preferred installers can be found on the City’s website or click here to download the PDF

According to the standards set forth by the Santa Monica’s Office of Sustainability and the Environment, the city seeks to provide a level of confidence for Santa Monica businesses and residents when they choose a solar contractor.  The Preferred Solar Installer list reflects that.

“There are many strides a company must take to remain successful and bring value to its customers,” said Arno Aghamalian, President and CEO of Solar Optimum.  “Being added to Santa Monica's Prominent List of Preferred Solar Installers is a not just an honor, but it validates that we’re moving in the right direction.”

By participating in the Solar Santa Monica program, a free service for residents and businesses looking to go solar, Solar Optimum has vowed to provide expert advice to the benefits of going solar, cost savings, rules, incentives and various financing options. By appearing on the list, Solar Optimum has demonstrated to the City of Santa Monica that a certain threshold of service and reliability has met their approval.  In addition to a complimentary consultation to homeowners and business owners, the qualifying services include:

  • Energy efficiency recommendations for a solar system and battery storage
  • Roof analysis
  • Bid comparisons
  • Financial analysis and options

Santa Monica’s efforts to promote solar is directly in line with newly-elected California State Senator Scott Weiner’s proposed legislation to require the installation of solar power on new residential and commercial buildings throughout California, reports, which goes on to note that, under existing California state law, all new residential and commercial buildings up to 10 stories must have 15% of their roof area “solar ready.”

Weiner is proposing to build upon this current state law by mandating that solar actually be installed on the 15% solar-ready roof area of new, small and midsize California buildings.

As a clear-cut leader in solar installation for residential and commercial projects, Solar Optimum is poised to work with Santa Monica in their efforts to promote solar energy.  To learn more about Solar Optimum or to get a free solar system and battery storage quote, call 818-745-1480 or visit
