Aug 7 (Reuters) - SolarCity Corp, the largest installer of residential solar panels in the United States, reported a 62 percent rise in quarterly sales amid “unprecedented demand.”
The company’s revenue rose to $61.3 million in the second quarter ended June 30 from $38 million a year earlier.
However, the net loss attributable to stockholders widened to $47.7 million from $39.5 million as operating expenses jumped 123 percent.
