- Why Sunrun
- Solar Storage
Lincoln has the distinction of straddling two different realities. Halfway between San Francisco and Lake Tahoe, life in Lincoln means you get the best of both worlds; big city life to the west, sweeping views and sick shredding to the east.
Here at Sunrun, we can relate, as solar has a similar story to tell. You have access to greater peace of mind, thanks to our advanced solar energy storage technology.
Lincoln fortuitously sits in one of those climates that makes it ideal for solar panels; the area itself averages over 256 sunny days per year.1 When you couple all that sun with the recent California solar boom, you have a recipe for major savings. Since 2007, thousands of Sunrun customers have chosen to electrify their homes with clean, renewable energy; helping save millions on their energy bills*, and we’ve got the solar plans and products to help you save, too.
If you want to really take control of your solar savings, then Brightbox™ is for you. Our advanced battery storage technology can be used to save some of the excess power generated by your panels to draw on later. This means when utility rates rise in the evenings, you can use Brightbox™ to help keep your costs down. Better yet, in the event of an outage, Brightbox™ can be used to keep your lights running and your phone charged. That’s peace of mind and savings all bundled into one.
If you’re in the market to lease solar panels, we’ve got you (and your roof) covered. With our BrightSave™ Monthly plan, you can start saving with as little as $0 down. You pay a low, monthly rate for the cost of the power your panels produce. In return, we’ll take care of installation, as well as handle monitoring and maintenance for the length of the agreement. It’s a simple, sustainable approach to solar.
We also offer our BrightSave™ Prepaid plan, which allows you to make a simple, upfront payment, and lock in up to 25 years of energy at today’s rates. You still get all the benefits of monitoring and maintenance, but with the confidence of knowing you’re maximizing your solar savings.
If you’re interested in owning panels of your own, we can help there, too. With our BrightBuy™ plan, you can pay upfront for the cost of your equipment. We’ll handle paperwork and permitting, and even cover your roof with our industry leading warranty, protecting against penetrations made during installation.
If you’d like to skip the upfront costs of ownership, then you’re looking at our BrightAdvantage™ plan. We’ll help you finance your solar panels through a simple loan, with as little as $0 down to get started. You make fixed monthly payments, with no hidden costs or provisions.
Best of all, whichever direction you go, you’ll be eligible to receive some pretty sweet tax incentives, including a federal tax credit worth up to 30% of the cost of your system.
* Estimated savings based on a projected annual utility rate increase of 3.16% over the life of the system. Actual savings will vary. Savings depends on several factors, including product type, system production, geography, weather, shade, electricity usage, full utilization of the 30% solar Investment Tax Credit by the system owner, and utility rate structures and rate increases.
