SolarCity Has Over 110,000 Customers; Aims For 1 Million By 2018
SolarCity just announced a record quarter with 17,664 new customers connected to the sun and 82 MW deployed in the first three months of 2014.
The total number of SolarCitycustomers by the end of March exceeded 110,000 and, according to SolarCity’s target, that figure should rise to one million by mid-2018. One million customers means almost one million homes with solar arrays and hopefully EVs.
Cumulative energy deployed already exceeds 650 MW and with 2014 guidance of 500-550 MW, that figure should turn into 1 GW before the end of the year. By the end of 2015, SolarCity aiming for 2 GW.
At this time, those 2 GW correspond to annualized electricity production of ~ 2.8 terawatt-hours (TWh) or about 1,400 kWh per every nominal kW of installation. Such amount would be enough to charge a Nissan LEAF well over 100 million times.
