SolarCity® is expanding its hiring and operations in Rhode Island. The company has launched a new hiring push to fully staff its Coventry operations center—and has listed new open positions for installation, sales and electricians. SolarCity operation centers typically have approximately 100 employees when fully staffed.
The new hiring is due in large part to Governor Raimondo and the Rhode Island Legislature’s work to build Rhode Island’s clean energy economy—particularly their recent efforts to expand net metering and reduce solar taxes. Previously, Rhode Islanders did not have the option to go solar through a lease or power purchase agreement due to state laws.
“We are grateful that Governor Raimondo and the Rhode Island Legislature support clean energy and the solar business economy by signing legislation (H. 8354A) that expands net metering and makes solar more accessible for Rhode Islanders,” said SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive. “We look forward to increasing our solar product offerings in the Ocean State.”
