SolarCity has had a big year, and it’s not over yet. Yesterday, the company announced its expansion into Vermont.
With the addition of Vermont, SolarCity is now available in 19 states.
Vermont is the fifth state in New England where the company offers its services. It joins Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island.
With the initial roll-out, SolarCity will be available to customers of Burlington Electric and Green Mountain Power.
SolarCity plans to open an operations center in the Burlington area soon and has begun to hire for local positions. They already employ over 1,000 people in the New England region.
Vermont was a natural choice for expansion. It is home to the city of Burlington, the first larger U.S. city to run completely on renewables. As SolarCity says on their website, ” We’re committed to doing our part to limit the damage, improve the environment and preserve the rugged, wooded beauty of Vermont.”
