How to get solar panels in four easy steps

But when you go solar with Sunrun that couldn’t be further from the truth! Sure, there’s plenty to learn if you really want to know. But when it comes to what you NEED to know to start saving money on your electric bill, it’s surprisingly easy. So easy in fact that we were able to break it down in just four simple steps.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Consultation
Talk to a solar expert at Sunrun who will ask you a few questions that determine if your home is right for solar, and whether you should buy or lease your system (most people lease). If your home qualifies, we’ll give you a quote and customized drawing of your home’s new solar design. All you have to do now is say “Yes!” and we’ll take care of the rest.
Step 2: Design Approval and Installation
Now sit back and relax while we get your system design approved by the city, and then take do the installation itself. We submit all the paperwork and schedule the inspections and permitting while you go about your life. How’s that for hassle-free? Once we have the permits, either Sunrun or one of our certified partners will install your system.
Step 3: Final Inspection
Once your brand new, uber-efficient solar panels are on the roof, the city will do one final inspection. Don’t worry, we’ll handle that too.
Step 4: Connecting to the Grid
This is it, the moment of you’ve been waiting for! Your utility company will come to your home and install a net meter that connects your Sunrun system to the grid. Now all that’s left for you to do is turn on your system and start saving!
You’ll get free system monitoring, insurance and repairs, plus an expert team of Customer Care associates and an online portal where you can check on your solar production stats anytime.
