- Solar Storage
There’s nothing better than watching a good movie in a classic theater. To that extent, El Cerrito has been home to some rather iconic theaters in its time. You know what else is fun to watch? How about your electric meter running backwards on a sunny afternoon. That’s because El Cerrito is also home to a rather vibrant solar panel scene.
Positioned smack dab in the middle of California, El Cerrito averages 260 sunny days per year.1 This means homeowners have the option to lock in long-term savings by putting up solar panels; in fact, since 2007, thousands of Sunrun customers have chosen to electrify their homes with clean, renewable energy.
When it comes to solar, everyone has a unique vision and a unique budget. That’s why here at Sunrun, we offer solar plans and products to fit just about any needs and lifestyle; better yet, whatever direction you choose for your system, we’ll stay by your side throughout the installation process and beyond.
Brightbox is our premium battery storage solution. With Brightbox, you can bottle up a bit of the sun and save it for when you need it most. For example, when the sun starts to set in the evening and utility rates inevitably creep higher, the energy stored in your Brightbox setup can help you control your savings. More importantly, if there’s ever an emergency or outage, you can rely on Brightbox as a source of backup energy to help keep the lights running and your phone charged. Who knew a battery could ever provide such peace of mind?
Want to go solar with as little as $0 down? Well you’re in luck. With our BrightSave™ Monthly plan, you pay for the power, not the solar panels. We design a custom system to meet your needs, and take care of the entire installation process. We even provide monitoring and maintenance for the next 20 years. In return, you pay a low, monthly rate for the power your panels produce.
If you want to really maximize your savings through a solar lease, then you want to look at our BrightSave™ Prepaid plan. You make a one-time, upfront payment and receive 20 years of electricity at today’s rates. It’s the easiest way to lock in long-term savings and protect yourself from rising utility costs.
If you’re set on owning a solar system of your own, then we’ve got options for you. With our BrightBuy™ plan, you can purchase solar panels outright. We’ll still handle installation (we’ll even guarantee your roof against penetrations), but you get the added benefit of a tax credit worth up to 30% of the cost of your system.
If you don’t want to pay for solar upfront, you can take advantage of a solar loan through our BrightAdvantage™ plan. We guarantee fixed monthly payments with no hidden costs or provisions, and all the benefits ownership has to offer.

Savings depends on several factors, including product type, system production, geography, weather, shade, electricity usage, full utilization of the 30% solar Investment Tax Credit by the system owner, and utility rate structures and rate increases.
