More than 22.2 million California households have been affected by power outages in the past 10 years.1 In addition, the average residential electricity rate in Davis is more than 30% higher compared to cities in other states.2
Yet, since Davis gets plenty of sunshine each year, which adds up to 267 sunny days3, and home solar costs have dropped by more than 70%4, now is the best time to go solar. Installing home solar panels and a battery from a Davis solar company like Sunrun lets you control your electric bills, get outage protection and drastically reduce your carbon emissions.
As the nation’s largest residential solar, storage and energy services company5, Sunrun has several solar plans to help you start your solar journey in the most affordable way possible based on your unique energy needs.
Also, Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E) Net Energy Metering program allows you to earn credits for the excess electricity produced by the panels on your roof. Meaning, you’ll have more control over your home energy.6

|Local utility solar rebates||$0.20 to $1.25 per watt|
**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.
Since 2007, hundreds of thousands of households have chosen Sunrun to take control of their electric bills, protect their homes from power outages and reduce their carbon footprint.
To date, Sunrun customers’ systems have created billions of kilowatt-hours of clean, renewable energy.7See how Sunrun home solar panels and batteries have improved our customers' lives.
Power outages are on the rise, and climate change is making California’s wildfire season longer and more severe. For public safety, California electric companies like PG&E are turning off electricity when strong wind and dry conditions, combined with increased fire risk, are forecasted.8 This is known as a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS).
