Honda has taken their mission to go green beyond creating eco-friendly vehicles—the Japanese carmaker recently announced the renewal of its partnership with SolarCity, a company that provides the public with clean energy. Through this renewed SolarCity partnership, Honda will finance $50 million worth of solar projects, while also providing Honda and Acura customers and dealerships in the United States with more available and affordable solar power.
“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.”
Both companies have already implemented a co-marketing program focused on owners of either solar powered homes or plug-in electric vehicles. SolarCity also helped Honda created the Honda Smart Home in the U.S., providing the high-efficiency and cost-effective solar system.
