MANCHESTER, N.H., April 28, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarCity® (NASDAQ: SCTY), America's #1 solar power provider, is making its popular solar service available in New Hampshire for the first time. SolarCity will make it possible for many New Hampshire homeowners to install solar with no upfront cost and pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility power, even without including local incentives. The company can allow New Hampshire homeowners to go solar for as little as $30 per month, with design, installation, financing, insurance, monitoring and a performance guarantee included.
SolarCity began taking orders from New Hampshire residents this week, and expects to begin installing its first customers in June. The company will accommodate customers on a first-come, first-served basis. SolarCity's service will initially be available to customers of Public Service Co. of New Hampshire (PSNH) and Unitil Energy Systems. New Hampshire is the 17th state where SolarCity offers service and the third in New England, joining Massachusetts and Connecticut.
"I want to take this opportunity to welcome SolarCity to the Granite State," said U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D – N.H.). "This announcement means that good jobs are coming to New Hampshire in an important and growing industry. SolarCity is a great addition to New Hampshire's diverse and innovative alternative energy sector that is creating jobs and saving consumers money, all while helping the environment."
SolarCity plans to open an operations center in the Manchester area and has begun posting local job openings on its website.
