SolarCity Expands Arizona Operations
SolarCity, one of the top solar energy providers in the U.S., recently expanded its Arizona operations.
The company has opened a new operations center in Prescott Valley, while opening a second operations center in Phoenix.
The service centers will give increased services to larger home and commercial builders.
SolarCity, since launching its Arizona operations in 2008, has increased to five operation centers. It now employs 180 people in the state.
Officials from both Arizona and SolarCity were pleased with the announcement.
“Arizona invests in sustainable energy alternatives as they directly impact the lives of our residents and the state’s economy with the creation of jobs,” said Leisa Brug, energy policy advisor to Governor Janice Brewer.
“We welcome SolarCity’s expansion in the state, as it supports our goal of making Arizona the leader in solar power generation,” she said.
“SolarCity is keeping up with the rising demand for affordable solar in Arizona without sacrificing on customer service,” said Albert Laird, SolarCity’s Regional Vice President of Arizona.
“The two new operations centers will help us better serve both existing and new customers in Arizona.”
Arizona now is third in the U.S. for total solar photovoltaic (PV) installation capacity, as solar energy production from 2010-2011 advanced an amazing 333%.
