Go solar in 4 easy steps

The only thing you'll have to worry about is making the neighbors jealous.

Did you know more than half a million Americans have already chosen solar power? It's easy to see why. With utility prices going up and the cost of solar going down, there has never been a better time to choose solar. And with Sunrun helping you every step of the way, it's never been easier to start saving 20% on your electricity bill.1

Step 1

Talk to a solar expert

One of our experienced consultants will ask you a few simple questions to determine if your home is right for solar. We'll also help you determine if you should lease or own your system. If your home qualifies, we'll quickly provide a customized quote, a savings estimate, and a diagram of your home's new solar design. All that's left to do is sign the agreement and lock in low energy costs for the next 20 years. 


Step 2

Design approval and installation 

Sit back and relax while we submit your solar design for city review and approval. Once we have the permits, either Sunrun or one of our certified partners will install your system. 


Step 3

Final inspection 

Once your shiny new panels are on the roof, the city will do a final inspection. We'll handle that part too. 


Step 4

Connecting to the grid 

Finally, your utility company will install a net meter that connects your Sunrun system to the grid, and give you the green light to turn it on.

Now you're ready for lower electricity costs and great service for the life of your system! You'll get free system monitoring, insurance and repairs, plus an expert team of Customer Care associates and a dedicated website where you can check out your solar production stats anytime. 

Now, doesn't that sound easy? 

What's a solar lease?

Solar leasing has quickly become the most popular way for homeowners to get solar in many states. Sunrun will have a system installed on your roof and own it. You'll pay monthly for the power it produces. The system comes with a warranty, is transferable to your home buyer when you move, and we handle any repairs and maintenance.
