As the capital of the most fruitful oil-producing county in the nation – not to mention one of the richest agricultural regions of the world – Bakersfield is a city famous for satisfying appetites.1
But all that production comes at an expense. Because despite the oil boom, energy costs in Bakersfield are still above the national average,2 sticking Bakersfield homeowners with high electric bills even as the oil continues to flow. Something about that just doesn’t seem to sit right.
Fortunately, Bakersfield is at the head of another national boon: The city enjoys more clear days than the vast majority of the U.S., averaging 191 sun-filled days each year.3 For homeowners who opt to install solar panels, Bakersfield offers the opportunity to lead the nation in another front: Energy savings.
Building a Solar Bakersfield
When most people think of Bakersfield, they think production. When we think of Bakersfield, solar is the word that comes to mind.
As the largest dedicated residential solar company in the country – and one of the most prominent solar companies in Bakersfield – Sunrun can help you save up to 20% on your monthly electricity costs.4 What’s more, thanks to our new BrightboxTM technology, you can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing you have a 24/7 backup energy solution in the event of an emergency or outage.
BrightboxTM: Stepping into the Future of Solar
BrightboxTM is a concept perfectly suited to Bakersfield: You keep the energy you produce, and use it when you need it. Sunrun Brightbox is the premium solar and battery storage solution for homeowners who want complete control over their energy bills.
BrightboxTM is designed to provide you with backup energy in the event of an outage. Imagine for a moment the peace of mind of knowing you have lights, a running fridge and the means to charge your phone in an emergency situation.
In addition, BrightboxTM can help optimize the overall performance of your system. For example, at times when electric rates peak, or at night when your panels aren’t generating electricity, your home can draw upon the energy stored in your Brightbox lithiom-ion battery, rather than you having to purchase that power from the grid. Best of all, BrightboxTM is available for any of our solar plans detailed below.
Start Saving with $0 Down
Sunrun's BrightSave® Monthly plan is as easy as it gets. You skip the upfront costs of ownership and instead pay a low monthly rate for the solar power your panels produce over a 20-year agreement.
If you’d rather skip monthly payments and pay the lease in full, then you’re looking at our BrightSave® Prepaid plan.
Best of all, both plans come with our solar guarantee: Sunrun guarantees 95% of the estimated output of your panels and Brightboxtm system.
