Vivint Solar™, a leading provider of simple, affordable solar solutions, today announced that it has expanded into Southern California and is currently offering solar services to residents in the greater San Diego area.

With Vivint Solar, consumers in San Diego County and North County have a money-saving, clean and renewable alternative to power their homes. Priced at 15 cents per kilowatt, Vivint Solar provides customers solar energy at five cents less per kilowatt hour than the next closest competitor. Vivint Solar customers save money on energy through the company’s power purchase agreement (PPA), in which customers agree to purchase the power their solar panels generate at rates significantly lower than their typical power bill. In exchange, Vivint Solar designs, installs and maintains the system with no out-of-pocket costs for the customer, providing the benefits of renewable solar energy without a large, up-front investment.

"Sunshine is ever-present in San Diego, which makes it an ideal location for solar panels,” said Allyson Parsons, a Vivint Solar customer in San Diego, Calif. “We had many companies to choose from, but the affordability of Vivint Solar in today’s economy made them the clear-cut choice. With no up front cost, the Vivint Solar plan makes good financial sense for anyone looking to save money and help the environment.”

“We are thrilled to enter San Diego’s mature market for solar which, because of its weather and demographics, is conducive to solar sales,” said Tanguy Serra, president of Vivint Solar. “Vivint Solar’s competitive pricing, which is 25 percent lower than the competition, is made possible by our power purchase agreement. We have already seen great success with our solar solution in this state, and soon plan on expanding to Fresno County in Central California.”

In addition to California, Vivint Solar is also available in markets in New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Hawaii. For additional information on Vivint Solar services and availability, visit www.vivintsolar.com.
