SolarCity Corp. says it has now launched residential solar service in Utah and is actively recruiting sales representatives, permitting and installation services roles in the Salt Lake Valley.
According to the company, construction of the new regional corporate headquarters in the Vista Station development in Draper is scheduled to be completed this December.
SolarCity says that Utah residents can buy their systems outright from the company or choose 10-year or 20-year loan options, with monthly payments starting at $50 per month. All options include design and local installation, monitoring, and a performance guarantee.
The company states that with the loan options, customers can prepay their entire balance or prepay a portion of their loans to lower their monthly payments at any time, with no fees or penalties. SolarCity will also provide and install a Nest Learning Thermostat at no additional cost for qualifying customers.
Utah is one of the fastest-growing solar states – ranked seventh in 2015, which is up from 31st in 2013 – according to the 2015 U.S. Solar Market Insight report by GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association. SolarCity says it made a long-term commitment to the Beehive State last summer by announcing a regional corporate headquarters in Utah, where the company plans to hire thousands over the next decade.
SolarCity continues to seek applicants for more than 100 corporate support roles at its temporary offices in downtown Salt Lake City and Draper.
