By Washington Business Journal local company's leadership set it apart from the dozens of other potential acquisition targets in the area. Lee Keshishian, another Clean Currents co-founder and its vice president of operations, has headed up the Clean Currents Solar division and will move to SolarCity with the acquisition, becoming the larger company's regional director of the Washington-area operations. He will remain on Clean Currents' board. SolarCity said it plans to offer its first solar panel products to D.C. and Maryland residents and businesses in mid- to late February. Tapping a $700 million-plus fund it maintains from financing partners U.S. Bank, PG&E Corp. and National Bank of Arizona, the company designs and finances the full installation of pricey solar panels for customers, signing them on to 20-year solar power leases that it says results in lower monthly bills than traditional electricity alone.
