San Luis Obispo is located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles on the beautiful California coast, an area where the crowds are smaller and the food is fresh.
The city’s idyllic weather lets you take in coastal views along biking and hiking trails almost every day because the sun shines approximately 287 times each year.1 That's a fantastic amount of sunlight to take the solar leap with a company like Sunrun, to protect yourself from San Luis Obispo’s high electricity bills, that are over 30% higher compared to what homeowners pay in other states.2
Sweating is good when you’re hiking or working out, but not when you’re searching for options to go solar. That’s why at Sunrun, all our solar plans to lease, purchase, finance or prepay your new home solar system can be customized to match your unique budget and home needs.
Since 2007, thousands of Sunrun customers have chosen to electrify their homes with clean, renewable energy.
Brightbox is a holistic service that includes a home battery unit, powered by your solar panels, able to keep your devices running for approximately 8 to 12 hours during an outage.** Plus, it helps ease Time of Use to ensure you continue to save the most even as electricity rates change during the day, guaranteeing you the lowest utility bill payment possible.
