Part of our role as Detroit Area Honda Dealers is to keep you informed with regard to everything the Honda brand does to make the world a better place. Honda has made it a point to make greener vehicles and reduce their impact on the environment, and now that have entered into a $50 million partnership with SolarCity to provide solar power to Honda and Acura customers as well as dealerships.
Honda Works Toward Blue Skies for Our Children
Honda has been working on their “Blue Skies for Our Children” program for years, shaping their vehicles, manufacturing, and dealerships to be greener and more environmentally friendly. Honda and SolarCity renewed their partnership agreement at SXSW Eco in Austin, TX, committing to a total of $50 million in solar projects, following the $65 million fund that was founded in 2013.
SolarCity has created a system that makes it so much easier to install solar panels in your home, and it starts with a simple phone call or web consultation. And if you’re a Honda or Acura customer, you can learn more from the official Honda/SolarCity website.
“The first phase of this partnership has proven that Honda drivers have a high affinity for solar power, while owners of solar-powered homes have a high affinity for Honda products,” said Steven Center, Vice President of the Environmental Business Development Office of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “As we look toward a future in which renewable energy will be an increasingly pervasive fuel source for personal mobility products, we are excited about capitalizing on the technological, environmental and market opportunities available through partnerships of this nature.”
“Our partnership with Honda is creating local jobs and helping to address air pollution, water pollution and climate change,” said SolarCity CEO Lyndon Rive. “Honda ‘s commitment is making a difference for the economy and the environment.”
