Vivint Solar, Inc. primarily offers distributed solar energy, which is electricity generated by a solar energy system installed at or near customers' locations to residential customers based on over 20-year contracts. The Company operates through two operating segments: Residential, and commercial and industrial market (C&I). Through its investment funds, the Company owns an interest in the solar energy systems the Company installs, and ownership of the solar energy systems allows it and the other fund investors to benefit from various local, state and federal incentives. The Company has a process that enables it to design and install a custom solar energy system that delivers customer savings. The Company is a licensed contractor in the markets the Company serves and is responsible for each customer installation. Upon completion, the Company schedules the required inspections and arranges for interconnection to the power grid.
