During the past 10 years, Californians have endured more than 4,200 power outages1, and they're expected to rise as the U.S. power grid ages and extreme weather events, including droughts and wildfires, worsen.
On the bright side, Camarillo solar panel costs have hit an all-time low.2 And since Camarillo sees more than 270 sunny days each year3, going solar is a smart and cost-effective way to prepare for the future.
Choosing to team up with a Camarillo solar company like Sunrun protects your home from outages, reduces your carbon footprint and lets you take control of your electric bills. Residential electricity rates in Camarillo are almost 35% more expensive compared to the national average.4

**Customer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a customer purchases or leases a solar system from Sunrun.
For over a decade, hundreds of thousands of households have chosen Sunrun to gain energy independence, get outage protection and reduce their carbon footprint.
To date, Sunrun customers’ systems have prevented millions of tons of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere, the equivalent of burning billions of pounds of coal or millions of gallons of gasoline.7See what our customers are saying about their home solar systems.
Wildfires are increasing in size because of climate change. In fact, the two most destructive California wildfires occurred in 2018 and 2017.8 To reduce power grid impacts, electric companies in the Golden State are conducting preemptive Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), which can leave households without the electricity for days at a time.9
