SolarCity Corporation is engaged in the design, installation, and sale or lease of solar energy systems to residential and commercial customers, or sale of electricity generated by solar energy systems to customers. The company primarily serves customers in 14 states and the District of Columbia. Products, Services, and Technology The company delivers renewable energy to its customers through a portfolio of complementary products and services. Solar Energy Systems: The major components of the company’s solar energy systems include solar panels that convert sunlight into electrical current, inverters that convert the electrical output from the panels to a usable current compatible with the electric grid, racking that attaches the solar panels to the roof or ground and electrical hardware that connects the solar energy system to the electric grid and its monitoring device. Though the company installs poly-crystalline silicon panels and string inverters, it has installed various other technologies, including thin film panels and panel-level power optimizers. SolarLease and Power Purchase Agreement Finance Products: Majority of the company’s solar energy customers choose to purchase energy from the company pursuant to one of two payment structures, such as a SolarLease or a power purchase agreement. Energy Storage: The company is developing a proprietary battery management system built on its solar energy monitoring communications backbone. The battery management system is designed to enable remote, fully bidirectional control of distributed energy storage that could provide benefits to its customers, utilities, and grid operators. The benefits to its customers of energy storage coupled with a solar energy system might include back-up power, time-of-use energy arbitrage, rate arbitrage, peak demand shaving, and demand response. Energy Efficiency Products and Services: Using the company’s proprietary software, it offers free energy efficiency consultations to each new residential customer to provide a detailed in-home diagnosis that identifies energy use and loss. Enabling Technologies SolarBid Sales Management Platform: SolarBid is the company’s proprietary sales management platform that incorporates a database of rate information by utility, sun exposure, roof orientation, and various other factors to enable a detailed analysis and customized graphical presentation of each customer’s savings. SolarBid simplifies the sales process and automates pricing, system configuration, and proposal generation. It also automatically prepares the customer agreements, incentive forms, and utility paperwork required to complete a project. SolarWorks Customer Management Software: SolarWorks is the company’s proprietary software platform used to track and manage every project. SolarWorks’ embedded database and custom architecture supports scheduling, budgeting, and other project management functions, as well as customer communications, inventory management, and detailed project data. Energy Designer: Energy Designer is a proprietary software application used by the company’s field engineering auditors to collect all pertinent site-specific design details on a tablet computer. This information then syncs with its design automation software, reducing design time, and accelerating the permitting process. SolarGuard and PowerGuide Proactive Monitoring Solutions: SolarGuard and PowerGuide provide the company’s customers a real-time view of their home’s or business’s energy generation and consumption. Through easy-to-read graphical displays available on smartphones and any device with a Web browser, the company’s monitoring systems collect, monitor, and display critical performance data from its solar energy systems, including production levels, local weather, electricity usage, and environmental impacts, such as carbon offset and pollution reduction. Zep Solar Mounting Systems: In 2013, the company acquired Zep Solar, Inc. (Zep Solar) and operated it as a wholly-owned subsidiary. Zep Solar licenses its patented Zep Groove technology to top-tier photovoltaic module and power electronics manufacturers, and supplie
