Surf’s up and energy costs are down in Los Angeles.

Find out how easy it is to go solar with Sunrun and save on your electric bills.

Home solar in Los Angeles, California

Going solar makes a lot of sense in Los Angeles. LA County gets more sun than any other county in all of Southern California! That's good news for Los Angeles homeowners who have been experiencing volatile electricity rates from their utility companies. Turning to alternative energy with solar panels is a great way to lock in low, long-term solar electricity rates and take control of your power bills.

Dorothy's Story

When Dorothy first heard about homeowners going green and getting solar panels for their homes, she was interested right away. Then on a trip to Hawaii, she noticed that most of the homes were equipped with solar panels. Intrigued and excited, Dorothy started looking into solar energy. She not only wanted to create a healthier environment for herself, but also improve the health of the city's electrical grid.


After learning more about the solar options available in L.A., Dorothy decided to sign up with Sunrun to get solar panels for both her houses in Los Angeles. With Sunrun, Dorothy was able to get started for $0 for each home, and simply pay monthly for her electricity.


Now, Dorothy is saving money on her electric bill. Whereas she used to pay $600 to LADWP every two months, she now pays $280 to LADWP and $160 to Sunrun.


With Sunrun, Dorothy doesn't have to worry about her systems at all since Sunrun watches over both solar systems for 20 years. It's a good thing, too, since Dorothy spends much of her time volunteering at the local schools and senior citizens' center.

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.
