Keep the Lights On with Brightbox
With Sunrun’s Brightbox™ home energy storage system, you can prepare for the unpredictable.

So when the next storm strikes, the sun can still power you forward. *Note - Our Brightbox solar battery service is currently only available for new Sunrun customers.
Solar Battery Technology
Energy storage technologies are crucial to a clean energy future. Sunrun’s Brightbox includes a powerful lithium-ion battery to optimize affordability, efficiency, and durability. When fully charged, your battery can provide approximately 8-12 hours of backup power on reserve, storing the solar power produced by your panels so you can use it when you need it most.
4 Ways Brightbox™ Powers You Forward
1. Peace of Mind During an Outage
We well know severe weather storms are hard to predict, not to mention a blackout. With Brightbox, you can rest easy knowing that you won’t be left in the dark.
Your home battery will have a constant reserve of power. You’ll also be able to choose which rooms and appliances you want to back up. That means you can keep your food cold, your phones charged, and the lights on during a power outage. When the sun’s back out, Sunrun’s solar panels will recharge your Brightbox home battery so you can continue to get backup power until the grid is up and running again.
2. Superior Service
We do the work so you don’t have to. Our flexible solar leasing options come with 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance, on us. If we notice that your home battery or solar panels aren’t working at their full capacity, we’ll send an expert over to fix it. We’re always standing by to make sure your home battery is in top condition, so you can keep powering on.
3. Control Over Your Energy
Brightbox puts your energy needs first. Our smart storage technology gives you control over your energy usage. During a blackout, you decide what rooms and appliances stay on. The more you know, the closer we get to putting the power back into your hands.
4. The Clean Alternative to Diesel or Natural Gas
Our home battery storage system is the clean alternative to diesel or natural gas generators. With Sunrun Brigthbox there are no harmful effects, no extra noise, and no gas or diesel.
Since you don’t have to refuel Brightbox with gasoline, you’ll also be saving on energy costs. Instead, our lithium-ion battery is charged by your solar panels, and has a storage capacity of approximately 8-12 hours of essential electricity. When the sun comes back out, your panels start recharging again. With the sun, you have unlimited power potential.
