California endured nearly 4,300 power outages in the past 10 years, impacting more than 22.2 million households.1 Also, residential electricity rates in Palm Springs are almost 35% higher compared to cities in other states.2
But there’s a light to break through these worries. Home solar costs are dropping fast,3 and Palm Spring receives an average of 269 sunny days per year.4 So choosing to create and store your own solar energy in Palm Springs with a solar company like Sunrun is one of the smartest decisions you can make today. Going solar puts you in control of your electric bills, protects your home from outages and reduces your carbon emissions for decades.
Sunrun is the largest residential solar, storage and energy services company in the nation.5 As such, we strive to make solar a reality for every family. Find out which of our home solar plans is the best match for your budget and energy needs.
And, since Southern California Edison’s (SCE) net energy metering program allows you to earn credits for the excess solar power you generate6, you can take greater control of your electricity costs.
For over a decade, hundreds of thousands of households have chosen Sunrun to gain energy independence and security, while preventing millions of tons of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere.7 This is the equivalent of the greenhouse gas emissions from billions of pounds of coal burned or millions of barrels of oil consumed.
Sunrun customers’ systems are making a difference in our country’s energy future. See their stories.

**Customer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a customer purchases or leases a solar system from Sunrun.
California’s power outages and related wildfires are worsening every year. Fires are bigger, hotter, more destructive, and have become a year-round battle.8 To protect communities and the power grid, electric companies like SCE are implementing Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), which can leave many households without electricity for days at a time.9
