SolarCity Extends SolarLease to Customers of Anaheim, Calfornia Public Utilities
“Anaheim is proud of the many incentives, rebates and funding options that are available to its customers, including solar leasing. We strive to create an environment where vendors can provide creative opportunities for Anaheim consumers,” said Anaheim Mayor Curt Pringle.
Anaheim Public Utilities has set aggressive goals for renewable energy production, with plans to generate 20 percent of its electricity from renewable sources such as solar, wind and hydropower by 2015. SolarCity hopes that its affordable leasing option can help the utility meet those goals. SolarLease in Anaheim is part of SolarCity’s continuing expansion in Orange County. The company has hired 19 additional employees in the area since June, and now has 34 employees based in the county.
“Anaheim Public Utilities and the City of Anaheim have made a significant commitment to increasing the use of clean power in the region,” said Jim Cahill, SolarCity’s regional operating director in Southern California. “SolarLease makes cost-effective, reliable solar power a reality for Anaheim residents, and should help the city adopt even more clean power.”
