America’s leading solar energy provider has expanded its business into yet another US state, announcing this week that it will be launching its residential services in South Carolina.

Despite a rough year financially, which we have covered ad nauseum, SolarCity has continued with an impressive string of finance acquisitions and service expansion over the past few months. Since June, SolarCity has expanded into Houston and Austin, Texas, and Utah. In the same time, SolarCity has raised $345 million, $305 million, and $347 million in funding intended to finance solar projects for homeowners and small businesses.

Announced this week, SolarCity has now launched its residential solar service into the state of South Carolina, making its affordable solar services available to the nearly 5 million residents. SolarCity provides customers with the option to immediately pay less for a solar installation and resultant electricity generation than they do for their current utility bills — with the added bonus that customers are also eligible for thousands of dollars in applicable tax credits.

SolarCity will open its local operations installations center in the Charleston area by the end of the month, and is currently actively hiring solar installers and salespeople.
