Greentech Lead U.S: Vivint Solar announced it has
expanded into southern California and is offering solar energy services to
residents of Fresno, Calif., and Bakersfield, Calif.
“Vivint Solar offers consumers an environmentally
friendly source of electricity at reduced rates,” said Tanguy Serra, president
of Vivint Solar. “We are excited to offer California a simple, affordable solar
product with best-in-class equipment, supported by world-class service.”
Vivint Solar offers free installation, monitoring
and maintenance of solar panels, and the ability to purchase the power
generated by the panels for a lower monthly rate. Vivint Solar customers also
lock in lower monthly rates for 20 years.
Vivint Solar currently operates in Hawaii, Massachusetts,
New Jersey and the San Francisco Bay area. With the addition of the Fresno and
Bakersfield markets, thousands of more Californians will have the choice of
affordable solar energy to power their homes.
Customers save money on energy through Vivint Solar’s
power purchase agreement (PPA), in which customers agree to purchase the power
their solar panels generate at rates lower than their typical power bill. In
exchange, Vivint Solar designs, installs and maintains the system for free,
allowing customers to enjoy the benefits of renewable solar energy without a
large, up-front investment.
Vivint Solar works with the leading solar vendors in the
industry, including microinverter provider Enphase Energy, and mounting system
supplier Zep Solar.
