SolarCity Announces Roseville Office Expansion
Mar 27 15
SolarCity announced its move into a vast new Roseville, California office to accommodate its growing local staff. The company currently employs more than 450 in sales, project management, marketing, design and IT roles at the location, and the company expects to boost its local workforce by 65% in 2015, hiring at least 300 additional employees to the inside sales team. The company inaugurated the new office on March 27, 2015 with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The bulk of the company's national inside sales team, which provides virtual solar energy consultations and services to customers in 16 states, is housed in Roseville. The new 60,000-square foot facility at 1000 Enterprise Way consolidates employees from five disparate offices in neighboring Granite Bay where Paramount Solar, acquired by SolarCity in 2013, was previously located. More than 250 employees also work at the company's Sacramento operations center, which provides solar installation services to the Sacramento metro area.
Town to Lease About One Quarter of Its Undeveloped Industrial Park on Old Forge Road to SolarCity Corp
Mar 18 15
The sun could soon provide 92% of the energy needed in town-owned buildings and schools under a lease-purchase agreement negotiated with SolarCity Corp. The town has agreed to lease about one quarter of its undeveloped industrial park on Old Forge Road to SolarCity. SolarCity would install ground-mounted solar panels on 16 of the site's 61 acres. The power generated would be sold to the town at a fixed, discounted rate for 20 years. The agreement was approved without dissent on March 16, 2015 night by the town council. It remains contingent on successful bids by the company for clean-energy credits in Eversource Energy's zero emission renewable credit auction next month, and its admission into a metering program that provides financial incentives for municipal customers to install clean-energy generators. If the deal goes through, SolarCity will sign one or more lease-purchase power agreements with the town and install three interconnected blocks of solar panels. Each block would generate 1.3 megawatts, creating a total capacity to 3.9 megawatts. The town would agree to buy power at a fixed cost of 10 cents a kilowatt hour over the lifetime of the agreements. The power would supply 92% of the town's current usage. Projected savings would total $5.4 million over the 20-year term, and SolarCity would pay an annual lease fee of $30,000 per block -- $90,000 if all three blocks are successfully bid, netting $1.8 million in lease fees. The potential net economic benefit to the town amounts to $7.2 million, SolarCity project development manager Miles Hovis said. There are no upfront costs to the town.
