Save big in the city by the bay with SF home solar panels

When it comes to life in San Francisco, there’s just some things you’ve got to accept. First, ice cream is best enjoyed sandwiched between two oatmeal cookies; second, every summer there’s going to be at least one disaster movie that shows the Golden Gate bridge getting destroyed; third, the cost of living is going to be downright expensive, making even New York City look cheap.1

That’s where Sunrun enters the picture. 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’re ready to help San Francisco claim its share of the savings, too. After all, you’re not just another city to us, San Fran, you’re our home; and you better believe we want solar panels all over our home.

Solar savings and greater peace of mind

Whether you’re in it for the savings or for the reliability of clean, renewable energy, we’ve got solar plans and products to meet just about any need and lifestyle:

Introducing Sunrun BrightboxTM: Battery storage meets control

Sunrun BrightboxTM is our flagship battery storage technology; trust us when we say it’s so much cooler than the description lets on. Essentially, BrightboxTM stores excess power generated by your solar panels for later, when it benefits you most. For starters, your system can draw on this stored power during times of peak utility rates – like in the evenings – helping you control your costs. Even more exciting, though, let’s say one of those disaster movie scenarios plays out, but on a really small and non-destructive scale, so the only thing that goes down are a few power lines. Luckily for you, BrightboxTM can provide backup energy, keeping your lights running and your phone charged.

Pay for the power, not the panels

In a city characterized by cost, it’s good to know not everything has to be expensive. With our BrightSaveTM Monthly plan, you can lease a custom solar setup of your own for as little as $0 down. We handle installation, and even provide monitoring and maintenance for the next 20 years. In return, you make a low monthly payment for the cost of the power your panels produce, and start saving 20% on your monthly electric bill.*

If you want to really lock in your savings with a solar lease, our BrightSaveTM Prepaid plan allows you to prepay for 20 years of electricity at today’s rates, insulating yourself from rising utility expenses.

Plans to enjoy all the perks of ownership

We get it, leasing’s not for everyone, and ownership has some rather nifty perks. With our BrightBuyTM plan, you make an upfront payment to cover the costs of your equipment. We’ll still handle installation, and even protect your roof with our industry-leading warranty while we’re at it.

If you want to spread out that cost, our BrightAdvantageTM plan can provide you with a solar loan, often with $0 down. You make monthly payments, and in return gain access to all the perks of ownership, including solar savings designed to last upwards of 30 years, and a federal tax credit worth up to 30% of the cost of your system.
