SolarCity, DIRECTV Enter Marketing Partnership

March 12, 2015 By Linda Hardesty


At DIRECTV’s California Broadcast Center facility in Long Beach, California, SolarCity recently installed a 1 MW solar system. But in addition to that contract, DIRECTV and SolarCity are teaming up for a marketing partnership.

Under the new service relationship, DIRECTV technicians visiting customers’ homes and businesses will be able to offer those customers the opportunity to use solar electricity from SolarCity. The opportunity will be offered to DIRECTV customers in every major market where SolarCity currently operates.

DIRECTV’s new 1 MW solar array in Long Beach provides power to the California Broadcast Center, one of its largest energy consuming facilities.

  1. How many panels do you need to generate 1MW? How do you know all the panels are working in good condition, how do you test them, one panel by one panel on the field?
    Thank you
