Solar + Brightbox™

Add Brightbox, Sunrun’s battery storage service, to your solar installation in Los Angeles. This can help keep you powered during outages, cloudy days, rainy afternoons, at night, or through Time-of-Use (TOU) rate spikes.8

Climate change has increased U.S. wildfires. California alone was hit by 14 of the 20 biggest ones on record in the past 15 years.9

Wildfires and their related power outages can leave homes without electricity for hours or days at a time.

Brightbox can help you back up your entire home with a Tesla Powerwall, or you can back up just the rooms you need with an LG Chem solar battery.**

When the sun is out, Brightbox can store clean and affordable back-up power for later use.

Brightbox is the L.A. battery storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge until the grid's restored.

No fuel, no fumes, no noise, no hassle. Brightbox is a superior energy storage solution compared to loud and dirty generators.

You can monitor your Los Angeles solar energy production and storage daily with the online dashboard and mobile app.

All monthly plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your home solar energy system works smoothly. This perk sets Brightbox apart from the average solar battery in Los Angeles.
