SolarCity in Del Webb retiree deal

SolarCity has signed a deal with Del Webb, a division of one of the largest homebuilders in the US, that will see it install rooftop PV systems as a standard feature in all new homes built in two large retirement communities in Florida.

For the time being, all homes built in the Del Webb Orlando and Del Webb Stone Creek retirement communities will include a pre-installed 2kW rooftop PV system – and homebuyers will have the option of upgrading to an 8kW system.

The 2kW system would save the average homeowner $300 annually on their electricity bill, Del Webb says.

The deal is groundbreaking in focusing on homes built on speculation and then later sold – rather than targeting existing homeowners, as is the case with most third-party PV lease arrangements in the US.
