How to Go Solar in San Diego

Regardless if you decide to lease or purchase your new San Diego solar panels — with or without a home battery — you can rest easy knowing that at Sunrun, we’ll offer you the best solar solution for your unique budget and energy needs to ensure you get the most solar benefits possible.

Besides, with California’s Net Energy Metering (NEM) policy, which allows you to receive bill credits for the excess energy you create4, you’ll also have better control over your home electricity and the price you pay for it.  

Why Choose Sunrun?

Since 2007, hundreds of thousands of Americans have chosen Sunrun to power their homes with clean, affordable, renewable energy. Helping them save hundreds of millions of dollars on their energy bills* while creating nearly 4 billion kilowatt-hours of clean energy.5 Who knew keeping the environment healthy paid so well?

Solar Helps You Keep Your Lights on During Outages in San Diego

As energy demand increases and extreme weather events make power outages and related wildfires more common in California; now, and more than ever, American families deserve access to cleaner, safer and more reliable energy solutions.

Studies have shown home solar panels with a battery can provide continuous electricity to meet community needs at times when the electric grid fails or needs to be turned off for safety reasons.6

Brightbox™ Home Battery: The Future of Home Energy

Brightbox is more than a solar battery in San Diego; it’s a holistic service with a battery unit, powered by the solar panels on your roof, capable of keeping your most used devices and appliances running in the event of an outage, or at night, for approximately 8 to 12 hours.**

And, with Brightbox, you’ll forget about California’s Time-of-Use rate schedules pressuring you to use your power-hungry appliances when there’s less grid demand if you want to cut down your electric bills. That’s why we Sunrunners believe Brightbox is the future of home energy.
