Vivint Solar Inc., a full-service residential solar provider, has expanded its nationwide footprint into Delaware. Following this expansion into the “First State,” Vivint Solar now operates in 21 states.
Vivint notes that Delaware’s renewables portfolio standard (RPS) targets to achieve 25% of its power from renewables by 2025, with 3.5% required from solar, and Delaware residents who wish to install solar energy systems can interconnect to the grid under traditional net metering.
“We are pleased to help Delaware residents embrace clean energy and invest in their state’s progressive energy infrastructure,” says Vivint Solar CEO David Bywater. “Delaware’s strong solar policies empower the people of Delaware to enjoy greater energy independence and be better stewards of the environment.”
Delaware residents will be able to purchase a system from Vivint Solar outright or finance the purchase with monthly payments through one of the institutions Vivint Solar has relationships with, or through their preferred lender.
As part of each sale, Vivint Solar designs and installs the system, and the company has completed over 113,000 installations throughout the U.S.
Vivint Solar has expanded into seven additional states in 2017 and now operates in 21 states in total: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia.
