My Sunrun Solar Story

"Creating a sustainable planet is both our greatest societal challenge and our greatest durable economic opportunity. I decided to focus on solar when I was flying back from a trip in Asia and I saw the massive impact coal and pollution was having on our environment. I wanted to do something at scale to help us use our resources more efficiently to support global growth. When Ed and I met in graduate school and eventually decided to co-found Sunrun, 100% of people told us it was a mistake and that I was crazy to leave my job in private equity. But I believed in the possibility to power our entire world with the sun and wanted to build a community to do it. We believed that solar could best be used in the hands of the people, establishing a cleaner, more affordable and more resilient energy future."

My Sunrun Solar Story

"I’ve been interested in energy my entire life, and I decided to focus on solar when I was in graduate school and met Lynn. We discovered we were both passionate about the environment, and finding unique solutions to complex problems. I saw an opportunity to bring new financial structures to the energy sector. We decided to start Sunrun with a disruptive business model; providing clean energy to homeowners without requiring them to purchase their own solar panels. We believed we could change a polluting, antiquated energy system into one that is local, responsive, and powered directly for and by consumers."

My Sunrun Solar Story

"I've been drawn to solar energy and policy since I studied resource economics in college. As climate challenges became more and more real, and I saw the need first hand (while serving as a state utility regulator) for more effective distributed solar advocacy, I jumped at the opportunity to lead Sunrun's Policy team. I am convinced that we need to empower people to be the solution to a cleaner and sustainable environment -- and Sunrun provides a way for people to take action and responsibility. Now that Sunrun is the national leader in residential solar plus storage, our opportunity to make a difference is incredible-- I couldn't ask for a better or more meaningful professional challenge."
