SolarCity Brings America's Most Affordable Solar Loan to Nevada

LAS VEGAS, June 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarCity (Nasdaq:SCTY), America's #1 solar power provider, continues to expand its offerings in Nevada by introducing its unique MyPower solar loan in the state. SolarCity makes it possible for many Nevada homeowners to install and own solar with no upfront cost and pay as much as 20 percent less by going solar than they pay the utility.

MyPower's financing option allows homeowners to install and own solar panels with no upfront cost and repay their solar loan gradually based on the solar panels' electricity production. SolarCity will continue to offer its popular power purchase agreement (SolarPPA), which appeals to homeowners who prefer to simply pay for the power that the system produces, and SolarLease, which lets customers go solar for a low monthly fee. All three options can allow many homeowners to pay significantly less for solar than they pay on utility bills to create ongoing savings every month.

MyPower is the most flexible solar loan product on the market. Customers can pay back their loans at any time after installation and have the ability to apply these payments to lower their monthly effective solar electricity rate or pay off their loan early. For example, if customers pay off their loans in full after 10 years, they will still be covered by the 30-year production guarantee, warranty and monitoring package.

For Nevadans, the availability of MyPower shows consumer options continuing to expand following a contentious debate at the end of the state's legislative session about whether to allow the solar industry to continue after hitting the state-mandated cap on solar installations.
