SolarCity has named John Stanton, veteran of the Solar Energy Industries Association, as its vice president of government affairs. He will lead SolarCity’s work with federal and state government organizations on a wide range of renewable energy policy issues. He previously worked with SEIA, where he was the executive vice president and general counsel.

Stanton said, “SolarCity revolutionized solar financing and has become the standard by which solar service providers are measured. SolarCity’s growth is instructive in light of America’s need to create companies that can simultaneously deliver value and savings to customers, help protect the environment, create new jobs and deliver strong returns to investors. This company has only scratched the surface of what it can ultimately accomplish, and I’m excited to be part of it.”
