Solar savings are easy here in San Mateo, CA

Home solar in San Mateo, California

While it might not seem immediately obvious, Sunrun and San Mateo have quite a bit in common. For starters, we both love tech. Granted, San Mateo is more vested in Silicon Valley’s innovations, but we think you’ll find some of our solar tech is rather cutting edge.

Then there’s the fact that we both love sun; our business is predicated on it, whereas San Mateo soaks in an average of 265 days of sunshine per year.1 And last but not least, we both want to help keep as much of your cash in your wallet as possible, and we think we can do just that with solar panels.

Solar savings and greater peace of mind

Here at Sunrun, we’ve already helped more than 160,000 customers save over $150 million, and we’ve got no intention of slowing down anytime soon. That’s why we offer plans and products to fit just about any budget or lifestyle:

Solar savings meets storage with Sunrun BrightboxTM

Sunrun BrightboxTM is our flagship battery storage technology, designed to help you control your utility costs while also providing a powerful source of backup energy. When your panels generate excess solar energy, BrightboxTM is able to store some of that for later, when it benefits you most. This means when utility rates rise in the evenings, BrightboxTM can help shoulder the burden, limiting the power you draw from the grid. More exciting, though, BrightboxTM can provide critical backup power in the event of an outage; if the power goes out in your neighborhood, your house still has running lights, a cold fridge, and outlets to charge your devices.

Pay for the panels, not the power

One of the easiest ways to start saving is with a solar lease, and in many cases you can get started with $0 down. With our BrightSave® Monthly plan, we’ll design a solar setup to meet your unique needs. We’ll even take care of installation, and 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 electricity costs.2

If you want to really lock in those savings, our BrightSave® Prepaid plan allows you to prepay for 20 years of power at today’s current rates. You avoid the hassle of rising utility rates, and don’t have to worry about seeing a solar bill for the next two decades.

Own your system, own your savings

If you’d like to skip the lease and go straight to ownership, we understand. And with systems designed to last for 30 years or more, the savings are certainly attractive. With our BrightBuyTM plan, you make an upfront payment for the cost of your equipment. We’ll still handle installation, and we’ll even protect your roof with our industry-leading warranty while we’re at it.

If you’d like to spread out the costs of ownership, our BrightAdvantageTM plan can set you up with a simple solar loan. You make monthly payments, and you’ll still qualify for all the perks of ownership, including a tax credit worth up to 30% of the cost of your system.
