Irvine is cherished by both residents and visitors alike. It is a plance many know as “The Bubble” due to the way it’s thoughtfully sheltered from the hustle of the “real world.” So yes — safety, cleanliness and beauty are the daily staples here. But unfortunately, pricey utility bills are also part of this OC lifestyle. In fact, electricity rates are now almost 35% higher compared to the national average.1
Fortunately, Irvine has more than 280 sunny days per year,2 an enormous amount of solar power.
As the largest dedicated residential solar, storage and energy services company in the U.S., we’ll work hard to hear you say, “Sunrun is the solar company near me that helped find the ideal solar plan for my home to shrink my residential electricity bills.”
And thanks to California’s Net Energy Metering (NEM) policy, which allows homeowners to receive bill credits for the excess electricity their panels generate,3 you could see greater solar savings month to month.
Since 2007, hundreds of thousands of Americans have chosen Sunrun to electrify their homes with clean, affordable, renewable energy.
Brightbox is not just solar battery storage in Irvine. It’s a holistic service with a home battery unit charged by the panels on your roof, capable of maintaining your devices and appliances running on solar at nights or in the event of an outage for up to 10 hours.**
Plus, with California’s Time-of-Use (TOU) rates, Brightbox lets you continue saving money even as your utility’s prices change during the day. Power your home your way, day and night with Brightbox.
With Sunrun’s BrightSave Monthly plan, you can switch to clean, affordable, renewable energy for little to $0 down. Lease your system and enjoy the same dependable power as full ownership, but with the added perks of professional maintenance and monitoring, along with predictable rates for 20 years.
Or, if you want the benefits of a solar lease minus the monthly bills, BrightSave Prepaid will definitely work for you. Just make a simple, one-time upfront payment, and you’ll lock yourself to two decades of power at today’s prices. It also includes bumper-to-bumper coverage for the life of the system.
BrightBuy and BrightAdvantage are your go-to plans to own the power, the panels, and the savings while experiencing a jump in property value. Regardless if you choose to pay for your system upfront — or through a flexible loan — you’ll get full ownership benefits, such as a 30% federal solar Investment Tax Credit and the nation’s second-best property tax exemption.5
Besides, with solar payback times averaging at 6.5 years,6 and systems designed to last 30+ years, you bet serious long-term savings will be yours for years to come.
