"I had the opportunity to visit SolarCity's Beltsville facility in 2012, and I'm very pleased that they are continuing to expand their operations in Maryland with the opening of a new center in Upper Marlboro," said Congressman Steny Hoyer. "It is critical that we invest in clean and affordable energy, and SolarCity is helping to make it easier for consumers to switch to cleaner energy. I am also proud that SolarCity is providing new opportunities for energy sector jobs and assisting consumers with installing solar technology for Fifth District residents and all Marylanders."
"I am pleased to welcome a new SolarCity operation center to Prince George's County," said Prince George's County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III. "SolarCity is an example of the type of jobs and industries my Administration has been targeting to bring to the County. I look forward to working with SolarCity to increase their footprint and job opportunities for County residents."
Maryland State Senator Doug Peters also welcomed SolarCity's new operations center in Maryland's 23rd legislative district. Senator Peters stated, "I am excited about the jobs that will come to this area with this new center and the enhanced access to alternative energy sources for my constituents."
