BALTIMORE, March 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarCity® (Nasdaq:SCTY), America's #1 solar power provider, is offering its groundbreaking MyPower solar loan in Maryland for the first time. MyPower, the country's most affordable solar loan, makes it possible for many Maryland homeowners to install solar with no upfront cost and pay less for solar than they pay for utility power.
SolarCity has created the industry's best financing terms by acting as a lender to customers through its subsidiary, SolarCity Finance Company. While most solar loans are provided by third-party banks, financing companies or municipalities in partnership with solar manufacturers and regional installers, SolarCity makes the entire solar process seamless by providing financing, local installation, monitoring and repair service from a single source. Like SolarCity's lease and power purchase agreement (PPA) options, MyPower allows customers to save money more immediately by paying a low monthly rate for solar without any upfront cost, but with the added benefit of owning the panels. MyPower customers can choose to pay additional principal to lower their monthly payments or pay off the loan entirely at any time without any penalty. SolarCity provides MyPower customers with 30-year warranty and repair service, production guarantee, and monitoring service package.
SolarCity serves Maryland from four separate operations centers in Baltimore, Beltsville, Clarksburg and Waldorf, and currently employs more than 275 people in the state. Area homeowners interested in SolarCity's services can contact the company directly at 1-888-SOL-CITY (1-888-765-2489) for a free, no-obligation solar consultation or visit SolarCity online. Candidates interested in employment opportunities in Maryland can review available positions and contact SolarCity directly via its online jobs form at www.solarcity.com/jobs.
