The notes are non-recourse to SolarCity and mature on Jan. 20, 2017.

SolarCity Launches Solar Service in El Paso

SolarCity announced it is launching its solar service broadly to El Paso homeowners for the first time. The service, previously only available to military families and local SolarCity homebuilder partners in the area, makes it possible for many El Paso-area homeowners to install solar panels with no upfront cost and pay a lower rate for solar electricity than they pay for utility power. SolarCity allows homeowners to go solar for as little as $35 per month, with design, installation, financing, insurance, monitoring and a performance guarantee included. SolarCity will initially serve area homeowners that are customers of El Paso Electric with local installation crews based at its operations center in El Paso. SolarCity's highly experienced local team has installed solar power systems that are providing power to thousands of homes in local housing communities, including military housing at Fort Bliss.

SolarCity Expands Operations and Services to Western Massachusetts

SolarCity is expanding its solar service to Western Massachusetts with a new operations center in Agawam. The new operations center SolarCity's fourth in Massachusetts will allow the company to serve a broad area across the western part of the state.
