Home solar is the best way to stack savings in Lafayette, CA

Lafayette is one of those places that loves to celebrate. Sure, there’s the traditional events, like film and wine festivals. But life in Lafayette is also about celebrating the finer things, too, like education, the arts and nature.

And thanks to the current solar boom in California, Lafayette homeowners have even more cause for celebration. With an annual average of about 262 days of sunshine, Lafayette is in prime solar panel territory.1 In fact, Lafayette homeowners could save thousands by making the switch to solar. And you know what that means, right? More celebrating!

Smaller electric bills, greater peace of mind

We’ve all heard the saying, “If you do one thing, do it well.” Here at Sunrun, we do solar, and we like to think we do it well, too. Since 2007, thousands of Sunrun customers have chosen to electrify their homes with clean, renewable energy; helping them control their energy costs. We offer solar plans and products to fit just about any budget and lifestyle.

Bottle up a bit of the sun with Brightbox™

If you truly want control over your savings, then Brightbox is for you. Brightbox is our premier battery storage technology, allowing you to store some of the power your panels produce, for later. This means in the evenings, when electricity rates are at their highest, you can use your stored energy to control your utility savings. Best of all, however, in the event of an outage or emergency, the backup energy in your Brightbox system can be used to keep the lights glowing and your phone charged.

Pay for the power, not the panels

Did you know you can go solar for as little as $0 down? It’s true. With our BrightSave™ Monthly plan, you can lease solar panels of your own. We’ll customize a system to meet your needs, and take care of the entire installation process. We’ll even provide monitoring and maintenance for the next 20 years. In return, you pay a low, fixed price for the cost of the power your panels produce.

If you want to really lock in long-term savings, we also offer our BrightSave™ Prepaid plan. This allows you to prepay for 20 years of power at today’s rates, truly protecting yourself from rising energy costs.

Panels of your own (and a sweet tax credit)

If you’re interested in solar panels of your own, we’ve got you covered. With our BrightBuy™ plan, you can purchase a customized solar system of your own. You pay for the cost of equipment upfront, and in return we handle permitting, paperwork and installation.

If you want to skip the upfront costs of ownership, our BrightAdvantage™ plan allows you to purchase solar panels through the use of a sweet solar loan. There’s no upfront costs, and no hidden fees or provisions.

The best part of ownership? Whatever route you go, you’ll be eligible for a federal tax credit worth up to 30% of the cost of your system. That’s even more cause for celebration.
