Clean Power Finance Sets Up Shop In Houston, Plans To Hire 100

Clean Power Finance, a provider of residential solar financing, said today that it has opened up an office in Houston, and plans to hire at least 100 employees in the location. Clean Power Finance--which is based in San Francisco--said the new office will support additional market expansion, and allow it to recruit talented employees in many parts of its business, and comes as the firm has outgrown its headquarters in San Francisco. Clean Power Finance cited Houston's role as a global leader in energy, finance, and technology, the presence of Rice University, and also its central location. Clean Power Finance provides power purchase agreements, leases, and PACE financing to companies that sell and install residential solar power.
