Home solar panel costs keep falling in the U.S,1 and Riverside basks in 277 sunny days per year on average.2 Meaning, you’re in the perfect spot to partner with a Riverside solar company like Sunrun to change the way you power your life.
Going solar protects your home from nerve-wracking power outages, which have affected more than 22.2 million households during the past 10 years.3 Also, home solar panels and a battery help you reduce your carbon emissions and control your electricity costs. Residential electric rates in Riverside are more than 35% higher compared to cities in other states.4
As the largest residential solar, storage and energy services company in the country,5 Sunrun works to ensure all families can create and store their own clean, renewable energy at home. Find out which Sunrun solar plan is the best match for your budget and unique energy needs.
Southern California Edison’s (SCE) net energy metering program allows you to earn credits for the excess solar energy you generate.6 So you’ll boost the control of your electric bills, too.

**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.
Climate change is making power outages and related wildfires a year-round battle across California. When weather conditions increase the potential for fire risks, electric companies like SCE are conducting Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) to reduce grid impacts and keep communities safe.8 Unfortunately, PSPS disrupt power to millions of households and may last days.
Outages are unpredictable and spontaneous.
