SolarCity’s Homebuilders program is now active on the East Coast, according to recent reports — now present across 7 eastern states, and via 11 different local homebuilders.

The program provides homebuilders with full-service solar solutions — encompassing customer service, real-time monitoring, insurance, and repairs, for homebuyers.

The East Coast states that are now home to homebuilders that have partnered with SolarCity are: New York, New Jersey, Florida, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, and Massachusetts. Amongst said homebuilders are: Baldwin Homes, Brookfield Residential, Covell Communities, Eager Street Development, Fernmoor Homes, Greenergy Communities, LifeStyle Homes, Rieger Homes, Shea Homes (Trilogy), Station Arts, Tommy Williams Homes.

These East Coast builders are joining a substantial number already partnered with SolarCity on the West Coast — where more than 100 builders are in partnership. The West Coast builders operate in the states of Texas, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Nevada, and Arizona.

Altogether, the company currently serves 15 different states throughout the country, via over 65 different operation centers. These numbers are likely to continue rising into the foreseeable future — worth noting here is that more than 4,000 new jobs were added at the company last year.

The recent expansion to the East Coast was aided by an improving regulatory and legislative environments there with regard to renewable energy, and specifically with regard to solar energy — with the overall outlook seeming to be that the technology is approaching mainstream acceptance on much more of the Atlantic side of the country.

On a related note, it’s probably worth mentioning here the fact that SolarCity’s CEO relatively recently made the comment that all of the company’s systems would be getting battery backup within 5–10 years, courtesy of the Tesla Gigafactory. If that happens, I imagine that sales should pick up some.
