Frequently Asked Questions

Brightbox works in tandem with the grid, and is not designed as an off-grid solution.

Just like solar panels, the number of Tesla Powerwalls you need will be determined by your unique energy needs and habits—but for some customers, one Powerwall may be sufficient. Your Solar Advisor will help you evaluate your energy usage to customize a solar system that sufficiently backs up your entire home. Request a free quote today.

Sunrun Brightbox offers uninterrupted backup power for your entire home.

The amount of available backup power depends on how much energy your household uses. If your Powerwall battery is fully charged, it can provide approximately one full day of backup for your entire home. When the sun comes back up, your battery will start to charge again.


At this time, Brightbox is only available to new Sunrun customers. We can’t install rooftop solar panels or Tesla Powerwall if you already have an existing solar installation or if it isn’t offered in your area.

Nevada has several incentives for going solar, including a residential energy storage incentive program, net metering and NV Energy’s renewable generations rebate program. Another major incentive is the federal solar investment tax credit, covering 26% of the final cost of the solar system. Currently, the residential federal solar tax credit gives you a dollar-for-dollar reduction against your federal income tax equal to 26% of the final cost of solar energy systems you install on your home. This benefit exists through December 31, 2022. In 2023 the residential tax credit will step down step down to 22%. In 2024, the tax credit for residential solar ends.

While some battery units allow you to store electricity directly from the grid, Brightbox exclusively harnesses solar power through rooftop panels. It’s 100% clean and renewable.

Through Sunrun’s Brightbox service, your Powerwall will automatically disconnect from the grid in the event of a power outage and restore power in your home in a matter of seconds. Your rooftop solar panels will continue to recharge your Powerwall until the grid is up and running again. 

A Powerwall installation is a relatively simple process. One Powerwall itself is about the size of a water heater and easily mounted on a wall—usually inside your garage or outside of your home.

You can use a portable generator—however, Sunrun doesn’t offer backup generators. If you’re interested in installing a portable generator, you can contact a local electrician or renewable energy installation company. These experts can recommend a system that will be appropriate for your home.

Please note that Powerwall cannot be installed on homes that already have a standby generator.

Brightbox is a home solar battery service that offers clean, reliable and affordable power. Brightbox can be used for backup when the grid is down and gives you better control over your home energy use and cost.

Our certified electricians will take care of installing and configuring your Powerwall for you. Batteries last anywhere between 10 and 15 years, and manufacturers typically offer a 10-year warranty.

Still, Brightbox is more than home batteries; it’s a holistic service that includes professional maintenance and monitoring during the life of your agreement. Customers who own their Powerwall get Sunrun service for 10 years, while customers with a monthly lease or full amount lease contract get free Powerwall maintenance and replacement for the lifetime of their contract.

Brightbox stores the electricity your rooftop solar produces during the day for when you need it most, such as in the evening, at night or when the electric grid fails.

You can monitor your Powerwall’s performance on your mySunrun app. Sunrun also manages the battery remotely using proprietary software to make sure it’s running as it should, and automatically updates your battery’s settings to save you as much money as possible.

Our monthly and full amount solar leasing options come with proactive monitoring and maintenance, on us. So if we notice that your Brightbox or solar panels aren’t working at their full capacity, we’ll send an expert over to fix it without you having to lift a finger.
