Solar + Brightbox™

Add Brightbox, Sunrun's battery storage system, to your solar installation in Escondido. This can help keep you powered through outages, cloudy days, rainy afternoons, at night, or during Time-of-Use (TOU) rate spikes.9 

Climate change has increased U.S. wildfires. California alone was impacted by 14 of the 20 biggest wildfires on record in the past 15 years.10

Brightbox can help you back up your entire home with a Tesla Powerwall, or you can back up just the rooms you need with an LG Chem solar battery.*

When the sun is out, Brightbox can store clean and affordable back-up power for later use.

Brightbox is the Escondido energy storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge until the grid is restored.

No fuel, no fumes, no noise, no hassle. Brightbox is a superior energy storage solution compared to loud and dirty generators.

You can monitor your Escondido solar energy production and storage daily with the online dashboard and mobile app.

All monthly plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your home solar energy system works smoothly. This perk sets Brightbox apart from the average home battery in Escondido, California.
