The Impact

Environmental Impact

Solar energy is one of the cleanest, most sustainable power sources on the planet. At SolarCity, we’re making it accessible for everyone. Average American homeowners can finally choose a clean, more affordable alternative to traditional electricity.

When our customers choose solar, they are choosing to save money on their electricity bills. They are also making a choice for cleaner air, cleaner water, healthier people and a healthier planet. SolarCity is giving average American homeowners that choice, and making it more affordable than ever.

Over 30 years, the average residential solar energy system installed by SolarCity will be equivalent to*:

174,907 pounds of burned coal…or
Driving a car 390,300 miles…or
Planting 10 football fields full of trees

Creating American Jobs

Even if you’re in a region that SolarCity doesn’t yet serve, you can still join our movement by purchasing Solar Bonds. We've opened offices and warehouses throughout the country and we’re continuing to expand into new territories.

The 2015 Solar Jobs Census finds that the solar industry is an enormous job creator—adding workers at a rate nearly 12 times faster than the overall economy and accounting for 1.2% of all jobs created (equivalent to 1 out of 83 new jobs) in the U.S. between November 2014 and November 2015.
