SolarCity Comes To Nevada

May 7th, 2014 by  

SolarCity continues its growth across the US. Like it or not, this company seems to be doing very well, and it also seems to be advancing the solar rooftop revolution. I’m curious to see how solar grows in its new state of Nevada….

    Nevada is in Solar Home’s backyard. They’re going to have some stiff competition from Solar Home if they going to break into that market. Solar Home offers higher performance products at nearly half the cost of a solar lease and the same performance products at nearly 1/3 the cost of a $0 down solar lease.

    Solar leasing is not you leasing the panels from a company. It’s the company leasing your roof for its panels. That holds even if there is a right to buy during or at the end of the lease.

    What if Vegas started working on efficienty with all those lights? What would happen if they were all LEDs? Not just to Vegas’ electricity consumption, but also to the price of LEDs, I think just by replacing all lights in Vegas LED prices will drop 25%. 😛
    Also with all the urban around Vegas, with lots of solar and a lot of efficienty, you can easily make Vegas self sufficient. Let everyone put solar on there roofs and all the casino owners by storage (and help people buy solar and go efficient) in 10/15 years everyone could have virtually free energy.
    Bye bye utillities around Vegas!
