SolarCity, a provider of clean energy, announced on July 15th, 2013, the opening of a new operations center in Stockton, California. SolarCity can now make it possible for San Joaquin area homeowners and businesses to install solar photovoltaic (PV) panels for free, and pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility bills.
SolarCity’s new 18,000 sq. ft. Stockton location located on Arch Airport Road was inaugurated today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-Stockton), California State Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton), Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva, SolarCity employees, and local customers. The Stockton location is currently staffed with more than 70 full-time, locally-hired employees who provide sales, consultations, and installation services to homeowners and businesses in the San Joaquin region. SolarCity is currently seeking to hire for 16 additional full-time positions in Stockton.
“In California and across the U.S. innovators like SolarCity are proving that a greener economy is a stronger economy,” said Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman. “Investing in cleaner energy, and building a greener infrastructure cuts energy costs and reduces pollution, but it also creates jobs.”
SolarCity forged the path to make solar power accessible to tens of thousands of customers who can power their homes and businesses with solar, and often save on their monthly electricity bills by paying less for clean, renewable solar electricity than they pay to their utilities. The Stockton location enables SolarCity to provide services efficiently to local residents who can save on their electricity bills and make the switch to clean energy.
“Stockton is a focal hub for us to efficiently service the San Joaquin region and to meet the growing demand for solar energy. We are pleased to contribute to the local economy, help more homeowners and businesses make the switch to clean energy, and potentially save thousands of dollars on utility bills,” said Dennis Cox, SolarCity’s regional vice president of Northern California.
