and prosper thanks to lower electricity bills. New Jersey is second only to California in number of home solar installations. That's because people here pay a lot for power, and New Jersey supports solar with a solar renewable energy certificate (SREC) program where homeowners can sell credits earned by their solar system.
"We have as many energy efficient lightbulbs as we possibly can, and still our electric bill is pretty high. Sunrun is a great option for a young couple because it really does help you to save money."

New Jersey has one of the most aggressive Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS) in the United States. Electricity providers must get 22.5% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2021. In addition, they must also get a significant portion from solar power (at least 2,518 gigawatt-hours by 2021).
The state also has a great program for solar incentives. Learn more about New Jersey's SREC program.
Homeowners are already paying more than the national average, and utility companies can raise its rates at any time. Check if Sunrun is available in your New Jersey utility.
