Home Depot Honors SolarCity

Earlier this week, SolarCity received Home Depot’s Environmental Partner of the Year Award.

Since 2013, SolarCity has worked with Home Depot to help customers go solar. Consultants in Home Depot stores explain all the benefits of solar.

As SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive said, “SolarCity’s partnership with Home Depot has helped consumers understand the process and full benefit of going solar, and provided an outstanding business opportunity. …We are honored to receive this award and look forward to raising even greater awareness of the environmental and economic value of home solar power.”

The Environmental Partner of the Year Award is one of the Home Depot’s top three annual Innovations Awards. These awards honor the most revolutionary new products and services that provide true benefits to consumers, and the companies that exceeded expectations in sales, service and program execution.

“The Home Depot is actively involved in pursing environmental excellence through our stores and our vendors,” said Ron Jarvis, Vice President Environmental, The Home Depot. “SolarCity partnered with Home Depot early on to ensure we are a leader in the residential solar marketplace.”

Having solar consultants or kiosks in retail stores offer another way to reach consumers and educate them about the benefits that going solar offers not only to the environment, but to the homeowner as well.
