SolarCity Corp. (Nasdaq: SCTY) today announced that it has launched residential solar service in Utah, and is actively recruiting sales representatives, permitting and installation services roles in the Salt Lake Valley.
SolarCity continues to seek applicants for more than 100 corporate support roles at its temporary offices downtown Salt Lake City and Draper. Construction of the new regional corporate headquarters in the Vista Station development in Draper is scheduled to be completed in December, 2016.
SolarCity's solar power systems capture energy from the sun and convert it into electricity to power homes. Utah residents can buy their systems from SolarCity or choose 10-year or 20-year loan options with monthly payments starting as low as $50 per month. All options include design and local installation, monitoring and a performance guarantee. With the loan options, customers can prepay their entire balance or prepay a portion of their loan to lower their monthly payments at any time, with no fees or penalties. SolarCity will also provide and install a Nest Learning Thermostat at no additional cost for qualifying customers.
Utah is one of the fastest growing solar states—ranked 7th in 2015, up from 31st in 2013—according to 2015 U.S. Solar Market Insight report by GTM Research/SEIA. SolarCity made a long term commitment to the Beehive State last summer by announcing a regional corporate headquarters in Utah where the company plans to hire thousands over the next decade.
