SolarCity Launches New Operations Center In Stockton, Spurs 85+ Local Jobs

STOCKTON, Calif., July 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarCity (Nasdaq:SCTY), a leading provider of clean energy, today announced the opening of a new operations center in Stockton, California. SolarCity can now make it possible for San Joaquin area homeowners and businesses to install solar photovoltaic (PV) panels for free, and pay less for solar electricity than they pay for utility bills.

SolarCity's new 18,000 sq. ft. Stockton location located on Arch Airport Road was inaugurated today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Congressman Jerry McNerney (D-Stockton), California State Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton), Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva, SolarCity employees, and local customers. The Stockton location is currently staffed with more than 70 full-time, locally-hired employees who provide sales, consultations, and installation services to homeowners and businesses in the San Joaquin region. SolarCity is currently seeking to hire for 16 additional full-time positions in Stockton.

"Clean energy has reliably generated tens of thousands of family-wage jobs in our economy. The jobs that renewable energy companies such as SolarCity create motivated me to introduce the GREEN Act (H.R. 2368) in Congress last month to promote career and technical training in the clean energy sector," said Congressman Jerry McNerney. "SolarCity's decision to expand its business services in Stockton and to hire locally demonstrates that clean energy is the right way for our future, environment and economy."

"In California and across the U.S. innovators like SolarCity are proving that a greener economy is a stronger economy," said Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman. "Investing in cleaner energy, and building a greener infrastructure cuts energy costs and reduces pollution, but it also creates jobs."

SolarCity forged the path to make solar power accessible to tens of thousands of customers who can power their homes and businesses with solar, and often save on their monthly electricity bills by paying less for clean, renewable solar electricity than they pay to their utilities. The Stockton location enables SolarCity to provide services efficiently to local residents who can save on their electricity bills and make the switch to clean energy.
