SolarCity, a company that supplies clean energy to residences, government entities and businesses, has expanded its operations in the State of Arizona by launching two new operation facilities in Prescott Valley and Phoenix respectively.
The establishment in Prescott Valley will cater to commercial and residential requirements for solar power. The Phoenix center will cater to non-profit entities, businesses and residential builder partners. The new Phoenix center will lighten the burden on the existing center so that the old facility can cater solely to small businesses and local residences.
The two facilities will not only facilitate job creation in Arizona but will also enable greater savings for businesses and residents by supplying clean energy at economical rates vis-à-vis the rates paid by them currently for utility power.
The Arizona Governor, Janice K. Brewer’s Energy Policy advisor, Leisa Brug, presiding over the inauguration of the Prescott Valley operations of SolarCity, stated that Arizona invested in clean energy projects owing to their direct impact on residents’ lives and on the economy of Arizona by way of job creation. Brug welcomed the expansion efforts of SolarCity in Arizona as it is aligned with the State’s goal of becoming the foremost generator of solar power. With their first operation launch in Arizona in 2008, SolarCity has now expanded to five centers in the State with the total employee strength across the centers numbering 180. The newly launched operations have created 25 job openings of which 10 are for the Phoenix facility. Both facilities have already hired employees. Some of the solar and energy efficiency services offered by SolarCity in Arizona are pool pumps, water heaters and enhanced insulation.
