Residential solar installer SolarCity is expanding its Maryland operations with a new 20,000 square-foot operations center in Upper Marlboro. The new center – SolarCity’s fifth in Maryland – brings new jobs to the area and allows the company to install and service customers in the Annapolis area and Southern Maryland.
SolarCity says it currently employs more than 75 staff at the new facility and has more than 100 open positions across the state. Open positions include installers, sales, electricians and engineers. SolarCity now employs nearly 1,000 staff in Maryland.
“I had the opportunity to visit SolarCity’s Beltsville facility in 2012, and I’m very pleased that they are continuing to expand their operations in Maryland with the opening of a new center in Upper Marlboro,” says U.S. Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md. “It is critical that we invest in clean and affordable energy, and SolarCity is helping to make it easier for consumers to switch to cleaner energy. I am also proud that SolarCity is providing new opportunities for energy sector jobs and assisting consumers with installing solar technology for Fifth District residents and all Marylanders.”
