SolarCity recently today announced its move into a vast new Roseville, California office to accommodate its growing local staff. The company currently employs more than 450 in sales, project management, marketing, design and IT roles at the location, and SolarCity expects to boost its local workforce by 65 percent in 2015, hiring at least 300 additional employees to the inside sales team.
SolarCity inaugurated the new office today with a ribbon cutting ceremony and will host a job fair onsite tomorrow, Saturday, Mar. 28, to kick off hiring efforts.
The bulk of the company’s national inside sales team, which provides virtual solar energy consultations and services to customers in 16 states, is housed in Roseville. The new 60,000-square foot facility at 1000 Enterprise Way consolidates employees from five disparate offices in neighboring Granite Bay where Paramount Solar, acquired by SolarCity in 2013, was previously located. More than 250 employees also work at SolarCity’s Sacramento operations center, which provides solar installation services to the Sacramento metro area.
SolarCity is the largest solar employer in the United States, with more than 10,000 employees across the country. The solar industry overall enlarged its employee rolls by 22 percent in 2014—a growth rate 20 times higher than the rest of the U.S. economy —while SolarCity grew by 107 percent in 2014.
“It’s exciting to see an industry leader like SolarCity expand within the Greater Sacramento area,” said Sen. Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber).
The company brings an abundance of high quality, career-track jobs to our region as we continue to improve our overall employment picture.
“The local success and growth of companies like SolarCity shows that the City of Roseville has what it takes to help foster a new economy,” said Roseville Mayor Carol Garcia.
The hundreds of jobs that SolarCity has brought to our community simply did not exist less than a decade ago, and we are delighted to see our citizens benefit from this evolution.
