John's Story

John was tired of paying higher utility bills each summer to cool his home. Bakersfield got a lot of sun during the summer and that often meant extremely high power bills for air conditioning. But, John also knew that abundant sunshine meant great solar production. Realizing that a home solar system could help reduce his family's energy costs, John started investigating his options for photovoltaic power.


He quickly learned that going solar with Sunrun would provide John with long-term savings on his power bills for years to come. With Sunrun Solar Service, John went solar for a low upfront cost and skipped the traditionally high cost of purchasing a system himself.


He found his solar installation seamless and Sunrun's billing process as easy as opening an email and writing a monthly check. When John wants to check on how his system is doing, he simply logs in to his online account and checks his production data.


Now, John's friends are also looking into clean energy with Sunrun, too!

Solar Energy in California

California has an extensive history of supporting solar power through its policies and incentive programs. California utility companies charge for electricity in tiers. This means that the more energy you use in your home, the higher your rate will be. With tiered electric rates, it's difficult to avoid high power bills, especially in the summer months.

With Sunrun, you can offset part of the electricity you use from your utility company with affordable solar electricity in California from Sunrun. This way, you avoid the utility company's highest rates for electricity. See if Sunrun works with your CA utility.
