San Jose, CA is perfect for home solar savings

Home solar in San Jose, California

Welcome to San Jose: a city that can simultaneously boast about being the capital of Silicon Valley and the home to some of the world’s premier hot dog eating champions. Of course, with a pedigree like that, life in San Jose doesn’t come cheap, which is why the city consistently has one of the highest costs of living of any locale in the country.1

Luckily, San Jose is also the sort of place that happens to average nearly 260 sunny days per year.2 Luckier still, we’ve got cutting edge solar panel technology to help you turn all that sun into major savings.

Solar savings and greater peace of mind

Here at Sunrun, we’ve already helped more than 160,000 customers save over $150 million by going solar. But whether you’re in it for the savings or because you’re interested in pursuing reliable, renewable energy, we’ve got solar plans and some sweet tech that are sure to turn some heads:

Sunrun BrightboxTM: Bringing battery storage to your home

Sunrun BrightboxTM is our flagship solar energy storage solution, designed to help maximize your savings and provide you with a powerful source of backup energy. Here’s how it works: When your panels generate excess energy, BrightboxTM is able to bank some of that juice for later, and draw on it when it benefits you most. Ever notice how utility rates peak in the evenings as everyone returns home from work? Well, BrightboxTM can draw on your stored power to help limit these peak costs. Now imagine a scenario where the power in your neighborhood suddenly cuts out. That’s where BrightboxTM really shines, as your stored energy will ensure your lights stay on and you have an outlet to charge your phone in.

Pay for the power, not the panels

Did you know it’s possible to go solar in San Jose for as little as $0 down? When you lease panels through our BrightSave® Monthly plan, we’ll customize a solar setup to meet your needs. We’ll even take care of installation, and provide monitoring and maintenance for the next 20 years. In return, you pay a low monthly rate for the power your panels produce, and just like that you’re saving 20% on your monthly electricity costs.3 But if you want to really lock in your savings, our BrightSave® Prepaid plan allows you to prepay for 20 years of electricity at today’s rates, avoiding the hassle of rising utility rates.

Own your system and your savings

We get it, there’s a lot of people in the town that tech built that want to own the latest and greatest. If that sounds like you, then our BrightBuyTM plan is a great place to start. You make an upfront payment to cover the cost of your equipment, and we’ll customize a system to meet your needs. We’ll still cover installation, and even protect your roof with our industry leading warranty while we’re at it. If you want to avoid the upfront cost, our BrightAdvantageTM plan can provide with a solar loan and simple monthly payments. Whichever route you go, ownership entitles you to some really novel perks including a federal tax credit worth up to 30% of the cost of your system.
