Soak up sun filled solar savings in Chico, CA

Home Solar in Chico, California

Chico is one of those places where the magic happens. For starters, you’re home to the world’s largest yo-yo, and that’s just awesome. You’re also home to a pretty amazing view of Paradise. And if giant yo-yos and sweeping vistas don’t do it for you, then you’ve always got the brew scene to fall back on.

To top it all off, Chico is smack dab in the middle of a booming California solar industry. This means homeowners have the option to lock in long-term savings by making the switch to solar. In fact, more than 160,000 customers have already saved over $150 million by going solar with Sunrun.

Solar plans to fit any lifestyle

When it comes to solar panels, everyone’s situation is unique. Whether you’re looking to cut a chunk out of that monthly electric bill or simply in the market for the peace of mind renewable energy has to offer, we’ve got the plans and technology to turn your vision into reality.

Bottle up a bit of the sun with BrightboxTM

The concept behind BrightboxTM is simple; you keep the power your panels produce, and use it when you need it most. This means at night when utility rates peak, your system can use the battery storage capability of BrightboxTM to help control your savings. More importantly, in the event of a power outage, BrightboxTM can serve as a powerful source of backup energy, ensuring your lights stay on and your phone stays charged.

Smaller electric bills with greater peace of mind

We think solar should be simple. That’s the idea behind our BrightSave® Monthly plan. We’ll design a custom system to meet your needs, and handle installation, monitoring and maintenance. In return, you lock in a low, fixed monthly rate for the power your panels produce, and start saving 20% on your electric utility costs.1

Want to save even more? With our BrightSave® Prepaid plan, you make a one-time, upfront payment to lock in 20 years of electricity at today’s rates. You won’t see a solar bill for the next 2 decades! Plus, with our performance guarantee, if your panels don’t produce enough electricity to meet your needs, you’ll never be charged for any extra energy pulled from the grid.

Own your savings for the next 30 years

Interested in owning solar panels of your own? We’ve got options for you. With our BrightBuyTM plan, you pay for the costs of a system upfront. In doing so, you’ll be eligible for a federal tax incentive worth 30% of the cost of your system. In return, we’ll handle installation, including paperwork and permitting, and even provide you with our industry-leading roof warranty, protecting against any penetrations made during install.

If you don’t want to pay upfront, you can take advantage of a simple solar loan through our BrightAdvantageTM plan. That’s right, you can enjoy all the benefits of ownership with no upfront payment, and no hidden costs or provisions. Like we said, simple.
