NORRISTOWN, Penn. - SolarCity (NASDAQ: SCTY), America’s #1 solar power provider, is expanding its Pennsylvania presence with a new 20,000 square foot operations center in Norristown. State and local officials toured the facility and celebrated new solar jobs in the region with SolarCity staff. The new facility, near the King of Prussia Mall, is SolarCity’s primary operations center in the state and the company expects to employ more than 100 when fully staffed at the location.
“Solar is back in Pennsylvania. Today is a day to celebrate new good jobs in the area and future expansions,” said State Representative Mike Vereb (R-Montgomery). “Investment in alternative energy and solar is important for our state.”
SolarCity, which launched new service options for Pennsylvanians in the spring, makes it possible for many Pennsylvania homeowners to install or purchase solar with no upfront cost and pay as much as 20 percent less by going solar than they pay for utility power, with installation, production guarantee, monitoring and repair service included at no additional cost. The company also offers solar services to small and medium sized businesses, commercial and municipal customers in Pennsylvania.
SolarCity’s new operations center means new solar jobs for the state. SolarCity began hiring Pennsylvania staff earlier this year and has a range of additional open positions posted in sales, installation and related roles.
