SolarCity Teams with Carrier to Offer Affordable, Solar-Powered Air Conditioning

Solar-Powered Air Conditioning

Companies collaborate to make the more sustainable, efficient heating and cooling options also the more affordable ones.

SAN MATEO, Calif., May 5, 2014 — Challenging the false assumption that greener products must be more expensive than less sustainable options, SolarCity and Carrier are teaming up to make high-efficiency, solar-powered heating and cooling solutions far more accessible and affordable for homeowners.

Carrier® is the world’s leader in high-technology heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration solutions.SolarCity (Nasdaq: SCTY), the nation’s largest full-service solar power provider, will provide Carrier customers the option to lower their energy costs by powering their heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems with solar electricity that costs less than utility power rates. The cost savings that customers realize by using solar power and more efficient HVAC help to offset the costs of switching to a cleaner, more comfortable indoor air solution.

To maximize efficiency and sustainability, the 21st-century home will increasingly need to align more intelligent energy consumption with clean energy production. This initiative will allow homeowners to create a comfortable indoor climate in a sustainable way, and simultaneously realize savings expected from the combination of efficient HVAC equipment and affordable solar energy systems.

Furthermore, customers can benefit from a special offer from the two companies beginning today. Homeowners can receive a $1,000 rebate on Carrier equipment from participating Carrier dealers by going solar with SolarCity. The rebate can be applied to furnaces, air conditioners, heat pumps, packaged units, ductless systems or entire system upgrades, upon operation of the homeowner’s SolarCity system.
