SolarCity, WGL Energy Partner for Mid-Atlantic Residential Solar


SolarCity is teaming up with WGL Energy to bring solar systems to Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. This partnership will allow customers to install the systems with no up-front costs. Through the program, customers can expect stable electricity rates over a 20-year period.

Gautam Chandra, Senior Vice President of Strategy, Business Development and Non-Utility Operations for WGL, said, “At WGL, we are dedicated to providing customers with a full spectrum of energy solutions, and are proud to add this residential solar option to our list of offerings, which also includes wind power for electricity and carbon offsets matched to natural gas usage…. We also are committed to responsible environmental stewardship and providing energy answers that help customers reduce their carbon footprint and efficiently manage their energy budget.”

SolarCity has been broadening their market recently, with recent forays into New Hampshire and Rhode Island, and an expansion of their Homebuilder Program.
