Turn up the savings in El Cajon, CA when you go solar

El Cajon, California is found in a valley enclosed by mountains, that’s part of San Diego County. This naturally-boxed geographic location helped construct the city’s name (derived from the Spanish language), which means “the drawer” or “the box,” making it own the celebrated alias of “The Big Box” still used today.

This land is a top spot to live, work and play; backed by a diverse, energetic community; safe neighborhoods, cool parks, good libraries, a long-time retail mall, and other sweet amenities. So, yeah, life in “The Drawer” can be super comfy in many aspects, but one: Electricity. This utility costs almost 38% more than in other states1, and it doesn’t only apply to supervillains who consume ridiculous amounts of power, like Dr. Doom. We’re talking about homeowners, like you, facing monthly rates straight from the depths of hell. Luckily, this region is blessed with 260 days of sunshine-filled days per year2; and with Sunrun, you already have the winning hand when it comes to savings.
