SolarCity has expanded its presence in the northeast with new locations in New York’s Westchester County and Long Island joining its recently magnified Albany operations centre.
The company’s 32,500 square foot operations center in Elmsford, New York will serve as a training centre for the entire East Coast. SolarCity is looking to introduce the first solar lease option on Long Island later this year, once approval from the Long Island Power Authority has been received.
“This expansion brings new jobs and cleaner power to New York,” said Ed Steins, SolarCity’s northeast regional vice president. “Installers, electricians, construction managers and field sales are good local jobs that can’t be outsourced.”
The company noted that it has already hired 100 full-time employees in New York and still has nearly 30 open positions in the state.
