Home sharing startup, Airbnb announced on Tuesday that it will be partnering with SolarCity, bringing solar energy to the home sharing community.

Airbnb members will be eligible to obtain a $1,000 rebate after installing SolarCity's system, in all markets where the energy company operates. The $1,000 cash-back offer will expire on March 31, 2017, and will be lowered to $750 for the rest of the year.

SolarCity is also offering a $100 travel credit on Airbnb bookings for both new and current SolarCity customers.

"This partnership will create the opportunity for many Airbnb guests to stay in a solar-powered home, and allow them to experience how easy it is to use clean energy to contribute to a cleaner, healthier society," said Toby Corey, Airbnb president of global sales.
