LEHI, Utah, Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vivint Solar, Inc. (NYSE: VSLR), a leading full-service residential solar provider founded in 2011, today announced it has surpassed more than 100,000 solar energy systems installed for residential solar customers. This significant milestone underscores the tremendous, growing demand for Vivint Solar's clean solar energy systems.
"To reach this landmark achievement in less than six years is a testament to the outstanding work of our entire team," said David Bywater, CEO of Vivint Solar. "We are proud to offer Americans the potential to save money on their electricity bills and power their homes with clean, renewable energy, and we look forward to bringing these benefits to more customers throughout the country."
Vivint Solar has now installed over 634 megawatts of residential solar energy systems, which is the equivalent of greenhouse gas emissions reductions from more than 3 million passenger vehicles driven for one year*. With power purchase agreements (PPAs), lease and cash purchase options available, as well as loans customers can access through the company's strategic relationships with financial institutions, Vivint Solar provides a wide range of products for customers. Many PPA and lease customers achieve significant financial savings of 10-30 percent relative to their current utility rate.
Jenny Gordon, a resident in Millbury, Massachusetts, first became acquainted with Vivint Solar from her neighbors and coworkers. Many of them had been Vivint Solar customers for years, and they gave the company high marks, which convinced Gordon to explore adding solar to her home. Gordon signed up with Vivint Solar in October 2016 and immediately saw savings.
"I had a great experience with Vivint Solar. I've recommended them to my family and would encourage anyone to go solar. So far, I'm saving nearly 20 percent on my utility rate. My coworkers and I often compare our savings with each other and it has now turned into a bit of a competition to see who saves more with solar each month," explained Gordon.
The company serves customers in 15 states (Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Utah) and Washington D.C.
