Home Solar in Hayward, California

And if great burgers and dogs don’t do it for you, then try this on for size: Hayward is perfectly situated in what we would classify as a dream come true for solar panels. Averaging 257 days of sunshine annually, Hayward homeowners have the potential to save thousands by making the switch to solar.1 This classifies as exciting in our book.

The backup energy stored in your BrightboxTM system can be used to keep the lights running, your phone charged, and the fridge cool.

20% electric bill savings, 100% peace of mind

Perhaps you’ve heard the term “solar lease” before. It’s a simple concept, and perhaps the easiest way to lock in long-term savings. Essentially, you pay for the power, not the solar panels.

With our BrightSave® Monthly plan, we’ll customize a system to meet your unique needs. And for as little as $0 down, we’ll take care of installation, as well as monitoring and maintenance of your system once your panels go up. In return, you pay a low monthly rate for the power your panels produce, and shave your utility bill by 20%.2

If you want to really maximize your savings, our BrightSave® Prepaid plan allows you to lock in 20 years of electricity at today’s rates, with a simple, upfront payment. You won’t see a solar utility bill for the next two decades!

Ownership on your terms

If you’d rather own solar panels of your own, we’ve got you covered there, too, with simple plans designed to bring you all the benefits ownership has to offer, including a nice 30% tax credit.

With our BrightBuyTM plan, you make a simple, upfront payment for a system designed just for you. In return, we’ll handle permitting, paperwork, and even provide a warranty on your roof against penetrations during install.

If you want to skip the upfront costs of ownership, that’s cool with us, too. Our BrightAdvantageTM plan allows you to take advantage of a simple solar loan, and make fixed, monthly payments with no money down. There’s no gimmicks, and no hidden costs or provisions.
