Your Sunrun battery system just got even more rewarding!

Sunrun is proud to launch an exciting new program that rewards Puerto Rican homeowners for supporting the grid! PowerOn Puerto Rico optimizes a fleet of Powerwall batteries to help prevent power outages when the grid is experiencing high demand. Enrolled Powerwalls will push power to the home and grid while keeping custom backup reserve settings, helping the island stay energized while earning you exclusive rewards.

Earn Rewards

Keep Backup Power

Apply Now in Your Tesla App

If enrolled, for one year your battery system will discharge to your backup reserve on days when demand is highest (up to 125 times over the course of the year). You’ll earn $1.00 per kWh used to power your home and the grid, giving you the chance to earn between $500 to $1,200 in rewards this year!

You maintain control of your battery backup. You will be notified of grid events, and be given the chance to opt-out or adjust your settings beforehand. In the event of a grid outage, your Powerwall’s stored energy will be fully available to power your home.

Open your Tesla mobile app and click “Virtual Power Plant” on your home screen. Review the program information and click “Agree and Apply.” Enrollment is capped at 6,500 customers, so be sure to apply for enrollment today!

What our customers are saying

Mark, Peak Power Rewards Customer 2023

"Certainly liked the Visa card. There was no impact on my lifestyle."

Michael, Peak Power Rewards Customer 2023

"Who doesn’t like getting money back on an investment? This one was pretty straightforward."

Pamela, Peak Power Rewards Customer 2023

"We as a family liked being a part of the big picture of using our energy wisely. "

Juan, Peak Power Rewards Customer 2023

"Although this summer we shared the battery power with the grid we still kept coverage on the fewer occasions we had outages. I hope the program will be expanded, not only because the money incentive helps covering the cost of the battery system,but also because it helps reducing carbon emissions even more."

Andrew, Peak Power Rewards Customer 2023

"Extra money without having to really lift a finger. Easy choice. 10/10 would do it again."

Typically, your Powerwall charges from onsite solar energy and powers your home when solar is unavailable or if a power outage occurs. Your Powerwall recharges from solar energy the next day, or when power is restored. 

As a participant in PowerOn Puerto Rico, your battery will behave similarly to the current settings, and will export excess energy to the grid, earning you rewards. This benefit is in addition to the Net Metering credits that you also receive for solar power generation exported to the grid. 

During a grid event, your Powerwall(s) will discharge stored energy to your home and to the grid, up to your backup reserve. 

You will be notified of all grid events, and be given the chance to opt-out or adjust your backup reserve settings beforehand. If you decide you want to participate in all Grid Events you can set your reserve margin and it will stay that way for all grid events and you will not have to take any action as grid events are called. In the event of a grid outage, your Powerwall’s stored energy will be fully available to power your home.


In the event of a grid outage or an emergency weather event, all energy stored in your battery system will be available to you for backup power. Your battery will NOT discharge for grid purposes when there is an outage or weather event. Your Storm Watch feature will not be impacted by participating in PowerOn Puerto Rico.

Upon enrollment, you'll receive a reward payment of $1.00 per kWh for each grid event. That adds up fast! 

For each event, you can decide what percent of your Powerwall’s energy you want to reserve for backup power. 

With a backup reserve of 40%, your Powerwall can discharge 7.4 kWh, earning you $7.40 for the event. This amounts to $555 for an estimated 75 events over the year! 

The table below shows the estimated earnings depending on the backup reserve you set.
