- Why Sunrun
- Solar Storage
There were almost 4,300 power outages in California during the past 10 years, impacting more than 22.2 million households.1 Also, residential electricity rates in Glendale are 25% more expensive compared to the national average.2
Still, by teaming up with a Glendale solar company like Sunrun, you can build a better energy future, starting today. The time for home solar is now. Glendale basks in 285 sunny days per year3 and, the cost of producing solar power is rapidly declining.4
As the largest residential solar, storage and energy services company in the U.S.,5 Sunrun works to ensure all households have access to clean, affordable and reliable energy. We offer several solar plans to help you start your solar journey based on your budget and unique energy needs.
In addition, Glendale Water & Power’s (GWP) Net Energy Metering program allows you to earn credits for the excess solar power you produce,6 giving you more control over your home energy.
|Solar Savings Types||Value of Savings|
|Federal Solar Tax Credit||30% of the final cost of the solar system|
|Other programs||Variable (Net metering)|
|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 energy costs, get outage protection and reduce their carbon footprint.
To date, Sunrun customers’ systems have prevented millions of tons of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere, the equivalent of burning billions of pounds of coal or millions of gallons of gasoline.7See what our customers are saying.
Climate change is making California’s wildfire season longer and more devastating, threatening homes, lives and the economy across the state.8 To keep communities safe, electric companies like GWP are conducting Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), which may disrupt electricity to many households for days at a time.

Since Glendale’s solar payback time is at less than six years,11 and solar panels are designed to last 30 years or longer, energy freedom is yours for the taking.
California has set the ambitious goals of requiring 60% of all the state’s electricity to come from clean energy sources by 2030, and from 100% carbon-free energy sources by 2045.12 The Golden State is also working to reduce greenhouse gases 40% below 1990 levels by 2030, and 80% below 1990 levels by 2050.13
