SolarCity announces major California expansion

SolarCity has opened ten new operations centres in California. All are expected to be operational by the end of 2013, nearly doubling the company’s locations in the state.

SolarCity will now have a location within 30 miles of more than 90 per cent of the state’s population. 

“This expansion not only allows us to spread job creation and economic impact to more local economies, but it also allows us to reduce our costs and environmental impact by decreasing drive times and increasing installation efficiency,” said Tanguy Serra, SolarCity’s executive vice president of operations. “The fact that this is happening as California’s largest state incentive programme is winding down is a key indicator of how far solar power has come toward the mainstream.”
