Torrance, CA (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
Verengo Solar, one of the largest and fastest growing residential solar installation companies in California, today announced that they have expanded their operations into San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Contra Costa, Alameda, Marin, Napa, Solano, and Sonoma counties. Verengo is now hiring sales and installation professionals in those areas and plans to provide tens of thousands of Bay Area residents with financing, design, and solar installation services for their homes.
“A recent study has indicated that nine out of ten Americans want more solar energy,” said Verengo CEO and Co-Founder Randy Bishop, “and Verengo believes that the 7 million plus residents of the Bay Area are uniquely qualified to take advantage of the affordable financing options we provide. The cost of going solar has gone down due to dramatically lower panel costs and existing state and federal incentives.”
According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the installed cost of solar has come down by 30% over the past year. SEIA's latest report also indicates business models like Verengo’s are spreading home solar to a wider market.
“California has become the national leader in residential solar installation because of the strong state and utility rebate support. This enables Verengo to give homeowners - for little or no up front cost - the ability to lower their energy bills substantially for the next 20 years while increasing their home value at the same time,” said Northern California Sales Manager Mike Terry.
“Verengo hired over three hundred and fifty employees this past year,” added Terry, “because of the rising electricity costs and the amount of sunny days the Bay Area gets every year, we know we are going to need many more quality employees to help us build on our recent success in other areas of the state.”
