**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.

Climate change is making power outages and related wildfires more frequent and longer-lasting across the Golden State. For public safety, California electric companies like PG&E are turning off electricity when strong winds and dry conditions, combined with an increased fire risk, are forecasted.8 These events are known as Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), and may leave communities in the dark for days at a time.
