Vivint Solar announced that it has expanded availability of its solar energy systems into Rhode Island.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Rhode Island's residential sector consumes more energy than its commercial, industrial and transportation sectors. Rhode Island residents who wish to install solar energy systems may be eligible to interconnect to the grid under traditional net metering or by participating in the Renewable Energy Growth Program, which offers attractive benefits to residential solar energy customers.
"We're thrilled to bring an affordable, environmentally friendly energy solution to Rhode Island residents and contribute to this economy," said David Bywater, CEO of Vivint Solar. "Rooftop solar is fast becoming a mainstream energy source for Americans who want to embrace clean power, positively impact the environment and enjoy greater energy independence. Rhode Island residents are in one of the best places to do that."
