REC Solar, a national company in solar electric system design and installation, has announced it will open its 11th office in California. REC will hire up to 50 sales and marketing professionals in the Inland Empire region of California to meet the growing demand for solar in that area.
“With abundant sunshine, the Inland Empire is an ideal place for clean, affordable solar energy to thrive,” said John Bumgarner, Regional Sales Manager for REC Solar. “REC Solar has already worked with over 150 homeowners in the region to install solar systems that reduce electricity costs. With a 100 percent satisfaction rate from local customers, we’ve made the decision to open a regional office and hire area residents to better serve this expanding market.”
Through a partnership with solar financing company Sunrun, Inland Empire homeowners can go solar with little to no upfront costs and reduce their energy bills from day one.
Area residents can also finance their solar installations through HERO Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing. The PACE program is sponsored by the Western Riverside Council of Governments and offers low-cost, fixed-rate financing for solar and energy-efficiency home upgrades. The loans are repaid through an assessment on the homeowner’s property tax bill. As of spring 2013, more than 6,000 homeowners had been approved for HERO PACE financing.
