SolarCity Expands Massachusetts Operations to South Shore

published: 2014-05-26 16:50

SolarCity® is expanding its Massachusetts operations with a new 7,500 square foot South Shore Operations Center in Pembroke. The new operations center— SolarCity’s second in Massachusetts—brings new jobs to the area and allows the company to keep pace with growing solar demand in the southeastern part of the state.

Massachusetts Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Rick Sullivan, CEO of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center Alicia Barton, State Representative Josh Cutler and State Representative Viriato deMacedo were among the officials on hand to celebrate the expansion. Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and the state legislature have championed the growth of the solar industry in Massachusetts. The passing of the Green Communities Act, the Global Warming Solutions Act and the Green Jobs Act in 2008 set the framework for Massachusetts energy policies that have helped to spur the rapid growth in the Massachusetts solar marketplace.

The expansion means a significant number of new jobs for the area. SolarCity currently has more than 60 open positions for the new facility—and 100 open positions across the state. Open positions include installers, sales, electricians and engineers. SolarCity now employs more than 120 staff in Massachusetts.
