Your savings don’t have to be foggy with Bay Area solar panels

Home solar in the California Bay Area

Sometimes when you’re traveling, you’ll visit an area that feels like it’s lacking something — that je ne se quoi that gives a city its specialness. When it comes to the Bay Area, you feel the opposite of that feeling, no matter where you go. From the foggy hills of San Francisco to quieter cities like Modesto, The Bay is full of surprises and interesting things. And, despite Karl the Fog, The Bay is full of sun too. So no matter where you decided to settle down here, you know that you’re a winner. Those good feelings can be hampered however when you consider the unpredictable costs of utility-provided power in California.

While many California residents are still paying through the teeth for electric, solar customers are seeing green! Did you know that more PG&E residential customers use solar than in any other region in the country? In fact, 100,000+ Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) customers have decided to have solar installed.1

With utilities trading in constantly changing energy markets, homeowners like you are forced to foot the bill every year, no matter the cost. It’s a business built on uncertainty and the willingness of its users to pay. We think that’s unfair. And we think you do too. Which is why you should consider solar energy and home solar panels.

Tom & Glorianne's Story

Tom and Glorianne needed advice. They wanted to reduce their energy costs and fight global warming by getting their San Jose solar panels installed. After considering proposals from several traditional PV installation companies which required them to purchase panels and perform their own maintenance, they heard about Sunrun.

Tom and Glorianne chose Sunrun because it gave them the lowest overall cost, in addition to the peace of mind that comes with Sunrun’s maintenance and repair, and monitoring services.

Like many people, they were used to writing big monthly checks to their power company in San Jose. With their electricity rate rising steadily every year, it is no wonder they wanted to get a home solar system.

Because Sunrun offers a low fixed rate for home solar electricity that's less than their utility rate, Tom and Glorianne were able to reduce their monthly energy costs and easily budget for electricity over the long term.

Tom and Glorianne got proposals from several other companies for home solar in San Jose, Sunrun was able to save them over 50% of the upfront cost to make their San Jose home solar, and offer unbeatable long-term savings as well. For Tom and Gloriane, the long-term economic benefits of Sunrun's power purchase agreement was undeniable. It was easy to see that Sunrun was the best deal available for solar in San Jose.

Since Sunrun guarantees the electricity generation from their system, Sunrun is on the hook to monitor and maintain the system at no additional cost. Because Sunrun only gets paid for performance, Tom and Glorianne are confident knowing that Sunrun will be watching their San Jose solar system like a hawk to make sure it delivers all the electricity Sunrun promises. Or they'll get money back.
