SolarCity sweetens pot to get people to add solar panels


SolarCity is offering homeowners in the Portland area $400 off their utility bills if they sign up with the company to install solar panels. The special promotion began Wednesday, May 28.

SolarCity is teaming with Groupon, the web-based coupon company, to promote the deal. Customers must purchase the solar discount on Groupon, and then will be contacted by SolarCity to schedule a consultation. The discount only will be applied if the customer decides to move forward on installing rooftop solar panels.

To learn more about the offer: www.groupon.com/deals/solarcity-1.
