ELMSFORD, N.Y. — SolarCity®, a leader in solar products and services, has announced a major expansion in New York state with new locations in Westchester County and Long Island. SolarCity said its three New York locations (the company also recently expanded into a new operations center in Albany) make its services widely available in the state.

Through its solar lease option, SolarCity said it can make it possible for homeowners and businesses to install solar panels for free and pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility power. Customers can still purchase systems outright, but by removing the upfront costs of purchasing solar panels, SolarCity said it is making solar accessible to a much wider range of customers. SolarCity’s 32,500-square-foot operations center in Elmsford, N.Y., will serve as a training center for the entire East Coast, and will allow the company to make its full set of services available in the surrounding areas. The company hopes to introduce the first solar lease option on Long Island this year, pending approval by the Long Island Power Authority.

“This expansion brings new jobs and cleaner power to New York,” said Ed Steins, SolarCity’s Northeast regional vice president. “Installers, electricians, construction managers, and field sales are good local jobs that can’t be outsourced.”

SolarCity said its expansion is due in large part to the efforts of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the state legislature. The NY-Sun Initiative signed in mid-August is expected to increase the state’s solar installation volume and create jobs. SolarCity has already hired 100 full-time employees in New York, and has additional open positions in the state. Candidates interested in available employment opportunities in New York can contact SolarCity via its online jobs form at www.solarcity.com/jobs.
