San Jose, CA is perfect for home solar savings

Life in San Jose is a rather sweet deal. The weather’s perfect, the views are breathtaking, and as long as you successfully dodge the light rail while casually strolling the streets, the city is as safe as they come.

Yep, San Jose is about as pleasant a place as there is. That is, until the mortgage payment comes due. It’s no great secret that San Jose is one of the most expensive places in the country to live; the average home costs over $1,000,000,1 and electricity rates come in well ahead of the national average.2

San Jose Solar Savings

Thanks to a booming California solar industry, it’s never been more economical to install solar panels; San Jose is about as perfect a place for it.

So how can you get on board with solar power in San Jose? The easy answer is to contact Sunrun. As the largest dedicated residential solar company in the country – and we don’t like to toot our own horn but we’re one of the most popular solar companies in San Jose – Sunrun can help you save up to 20% on your monthly electricity costs.3

What’s more, thanks to our new BrightboxTM technology, you can enjoy the peace of mind knowing you have a 24/7 backup energy solution in the event of an emergency or outage.

BrightboxTM: Stepping into the Future of Solar

It’s a simple concept: You keep what you create. Sunrun BrightboxTM is the premium solar and battery storage solution for homeowners who want complete control over their energy bills. And at the risk of sounding smug, BrightboxTM is impressive enough we think it rivals anything coming out of Silicon Valley these days.

BrightboxTM is designed to provide you with the peace of mind of knowing you have backup energy stored away in the event of an outage. Imagine for a moment the feeling of knowing you have lights, a running fridge and the means to charge your phone in an emergency situation.

In addition, BrightboxTM can help optimize the overall performance of your solar setup. At times when electric rates peak, or at night when your panels aren’t producing, your home can draw upon stored energy, rather than the grid. Best of all, is BrightboxTM is available for any of our solar plans detailed below.

Start Saving with $0 Down

Sunrun's BrightSaveTM Monthly plan is as easy as it gets. You skip the upfront costs of ownership and instead pay a low monthly rate for the solar power your panels produce over a 20-year agreement.

If you’d rather skip monthly payments and pay the lease in full, then you’re looking at our BrightSaveTM Prepaid plan.

Best of all, both plans come with our solar guarantee: Sunrun guarantees 95% of the estimated output of your panels and BrightboxTM system.**
