Vivint Solar Expands Operations Into Delaware

November 3rd, 2017 by  

Leading US residential solar installer Vivint Solar has announced this week that it has successfully expanded operations into the state of Delaware, raising its total reach to 21 states.

Vivint Solar has now expanded into seven additional states during 2017, after expanding into Rhode Island in May, then Colorado, relaunching services in Nevada, and further expansions in Vermont, Virginia, Pittsburgh (in Pennsylvania), and now Delaware, residents of which can now purchase a Vivint Solar system outright or finance through monthly payments thanks to the existing partnerships Vivint Solar has with financial institutions.

Delaware’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards require the state’s utilities derive 25% of their energy portfolios from renewable energy sources by 2025, including 3.5% from solar. This creates added incentive for Delaware residents who want to go solar, as they can then interconnect their systems with the state grid under traditional net metering rules.

“We are pleased to help Delaware residents embrace clean energy and invest in their state’s progressive energy infrastructure,” said Vivint Solar CEO David Bywater. “Delaware’s strong solar policies empower the people of Delaware to enjoy greater energy independence and be better stewards of the environment.”
