SolarCity’s mission is to remove every obstacle that stands in the way of clean energy.
The electric utility industry’s central criticism of distributed solar is that it creates a “cost shift” from rooftop solar customers to non-solar customers. This isn’t entirely true because most solar customers cover the cost for utilities to serve them, thus shifting no costs.
Today we launched MySolarCity, an app that allows you, as a SolarCity customer, to track solar system production and home consumption, interact directly with the SolarCity community and get a smarter, more connected home.
The design of an electrical grid for the 21st Century is one of the world’s most exciting challenges, and at SolarCity we are vigorously engaged in assisting the effort. Our vision is of a grid that is cleaner, more efficient, more flexible, more secure, and more affordable than what we currently have today.
