SolarCity Opens Operations Center in New Jersey

Company allows businesses and homeowners to install panels for free and pay less for solar power than utility power with local installation and service

CRANBURY, N.J., Feb. 23, 2012—SolarCity® today announced the opening of a new facility that will bring new jobs and help New Jersey homeowners save money by using cleaner energy. SolarCity can give New Jersey homeowners and businesses the option to install solar panels for free and pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility power. The company was joined last night by local leaders Congressman Rush Holt, State Senator Linda Greenstein, State Assemblyman Daniel Benson and Deputy Mayor of Cranbury Glenn Johnson to celebrate the opening of the new facility.


"We're expanding our presence to make it easier for New Jersey homeowners and businesses to pay less money for better energy," said Leon Keshishian, SolarCity's regional director. "Much has been made of decreasing solar incentives here, but we continue to provide customers the ability to pay less for clean energy than they pay for utility power."

SolarCity's scale and purchasing power allows it to offer solar power below utility power rates, despite lower incentive levels that are discouraging many solar providers from expanding their operations in New Jersey. SolarCity was the No. 1 residential solar installer in the U.S. in 2010 and 2011 according to GTM Research, with more than double the volume of its nearest competitor.

New Jersey homeowners and businesses interested in any of SolarCity's services may contact the company directly at 1-888-SOL-CITY (1-888-765-2489) or visit SolarCity online at www.solarcity.com/request. Candidates interested in employment in New Jersey may contact SolarCity via its online jobs forum at www.solarcity.com/jobs.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
