PITTSBURGH, Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SolarCity Corp. (NASDAQ: SCTY), America's #1 solar power provider, is expanding its Western Pennsylvania presence with a new 18,000 square foot operations center. State and local officials toured the facility and celebrated new solar jobs and clean energy options in the region. The new facility is SolarCity's third operations center in the state—joining Norristown and Lancaster—and pushes the company's Pennsylvania staffing to more than 350. SolarCity expects to employ more than 125 people when fully staffed at the Pittsburgh-area location.
"SolarCity's continued expansion across the state is good news for Pennsylvania consumers and for the environment. By using solar energy, homeowners and businesses can save money on utility bills and reduce the production of greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change," said Lieutenant Governor Mike Stack.
SolarCity, which launched new service for Western Pennsylvania in the spring, makes it possible for many Pennsylvania homeowners to install solar with no upfront cost and pay as much as 20 percent less than they pay for utility power, with installation, production guarantee, monitoring and repair service included. The company also offers solar services to small and medium-sized businesses, as well as commercial and municipal customers in Pennsylvania.
SolarCity's new operations center means new solar jobs for the state. SolarCity began hiring regional staff earlier this year and has a range of additional open positions posted in sales, installation and related roles.
