BALTIMORE, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vivint Solar, a leading full-service residential solar provider, today announced its growing presence in Maryland with expansion into the North Baltimore and Frederick areas. Vivint Solar first made its offerings available to Maryland residents in early 2013 and has already become the leading residential solar installer, according to Greentech Media Research's US PV Leaderboard. The company plans to hire 85 employees in the combined new locations to continue providing its affordable solar solutions to homeowners.
"Our success in Maryland is evidence of growing demand for residential solar solutions in the state," said Chance Allred, vice president of sales at Vivint Solar. "We are excited to reach out to the homeowners in the North Baltimore and Frederick areas to offer affordable solar."
Vivint Solar's new territory expansion coincides with GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association's (SEIA) Solar Market Insight Year in Review 2013, which showed photovoltaic installations continued to grow, increasing 41 percent nationally from 2012. As the second largest residential solar installer in the United States, Vivint Solar's growth is indicative of the growing acceptance of residential solar as a mainstream energy source for homeowners.
Residents choose a power purchase agreement (PPA) from Vivint Solar for the potential cost savings. "With five children in private schools, a lower energy rate was an easy decision," said Erin Justice, of Laurel, MD. "We are always looking for ways to save money for our family."
