Hayward, CA is a great destination for home solar

Sure, Hayward might not have the glitz and glam of other Bay Area cities. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to love. For starters, Hayward is home to some of the best burgers and hot dogs to be had in California.

And if great burgers and hotdogs 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.

Sustainable savings made simple in Hayward

When it comes to the solar lifestyle, we think it should be easy to take advantage of all the great benefits solar has to offer. That’s why we have solar plans and products to fit nearly any budget and lifestyle.  Since 2007, thousands of Sunrun customers have chosen to electrify their homes with clean, renewable energy; helping save millions on their energy bills.*

Enjoy peace of mind with BrightboxTM

Brightbox is our premier battery storage technology. It allows you to store solar energy and use it later – like in the evenings when utility rates are higher – for additional control over your savings. However, the real magic behind Brightbox will become evident the next time your neighborhood experiences an outage. The backup energy stored in your Brightbox  system can be used to keep the lights running, your phone charged and the fridge cool.

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 BrightSaveTM 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.

If you want to really maximize your savings, our BrightSaveTM 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.
