It’s no huge secret the cost of living in the Bay Area is high. In fact, it’s 80% more expensive than the national average.1 Electricity rates alone are almost 30% greater vs. other U.S. states.2
However, thanks to a booming California solar industry (or solar rush, in San Franciscan lingo), relief is at hand; because once you go solar with Bay Area solar companies like Sunrun, you’ll lock in long-term savings for years to come.
As the nation’s largest dedicated residential solar, storage and energy services company, we’ll work hard to help you harness the almost 260 sunny days the Bay Area receives per year3 and to hear you say, “Sunrun is the solar company near me that offered me the best solution to shrink my pricey utility bills.”
We've even helped some of the most iconic homes in the Bay Area like the Painted Ladies; go solar, so find out why so many are choosing Sunrun!
Everyone’s situation is unique, and we understand this. Precisely why at Sunrun, you can lease, prepay, purchase or finance your new solar panels — or solar battery storage system — with confidence. No bait-and-switch gimmicks. We truly love solar and simply want to help you get the savings and peace of mind you deserve.
And, with California’s Net Energy Metering (NEM) policy allowing homeowners to receive credits for the excess electricity their panels produce4, you could see bigger savings each month.
