Residential solar provider Vivint Solar has announced its expansion into Florida, with availability beginning in the Tampa Bay area. The company has hired approximately 40 employees in the state and plans to continue hiring as it extends into new regions.
Vivint Solar now operates in 13 states, including Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Utah. The company says its recent growth is indicative of the growing adoption of residential solar as a mainstream energy source for homeowners.
“We now have more than 80,000 customers nationwide who are enjoying the financial and environmental benefits of our systems, and we are thrilled to be making that available to the residents of Florida,” states David Bywater, interim CEO of Vivint Solar. “Floridians will now be able to enjoy the clean solar power their homes are able to generate, which can save them money and reduce impact on the environment.”
