IBS: SolarCity offers solar options to home buildersSolarCity partners with builders to offer solar photovoltaic systems on new homes. With the program, SolarCity promises to deliver the benefits of solar power to homebuyers for little to no upfront cost. Walter Cuculic, manager of the builder program for SolarCity, explains how the program works so home buyers can save up to thousands on their utility bills, and will also enable them to lock in their solar electricity costs for decades into the future.
