Dennis' Story

Dennis and his wife discovered the San Luis Obispo area when one of their sons attended Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. A long time wine connoisseur, Dennis built his new home in the Edna Ranch area, surrounded by vineyards.

They spent over 3 years designing and constructing their home, and love living in the country. Not quite as enjoyable were the high rural power rates that came with country living, which cost them up to $500 every month.

Dennis initially wondered whether he should wait to get a system, but he realized that he shouldn't wait for future technology advances in solar power because there was no time like the present.

Luckily, solar power was readily available in San Luis Obispo through Sunrun. Dennis says “I felt that Sunrun was the right thing to do - both environmentally and for the long haul. It was time to step up."

Dennis didn't initially consider home solar leases, but he liked that Sunrun fixes anything that goes wrong with his system. He also chose Sunrun because it was the solution that would most easily allow him to sell his San Luis Obispo solar home in the future. 

Since going solar in San Luis Obispo with a Sunrun power purchase agreement, Dennis and his wife now pay well under half every month that they previously paid for power.
