Solar + Brightbox™

Add Brightbox, Sunrun’s battery storage service, to your solar installation in Hayward. This can help keep you powered during outages, cloudy days, rainy afternoons, at night, or when Time-of-Use (TOU) rates spike.8

Climate change and utility neglect have made wildfires and related outages more common across California.

Electric companies are rolling out Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), which leave millions of homes without electricity for hours or days at a time.

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 Hayward back-up storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge until the grid's restored.

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

You can monitor your Hayward solar power 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 runs smoothly. This benefit sets Brightbox apart from the average solar battery in Hayward.
