Santa Rosa is the kind of place we here at Sunrun get excited for, thanks in part to the vibrant local scene. There’s a real pride in town that comes from buying and producing locally, and it’s a sentiment we wholeheartedly support.
Maybe it’s because solar has such a similar story to tell. In our humble opinion, there’s no better feeling than utilizing solar panels to produce your own energy, while also saving money in the process. In fact, the abundance of sun that has all your vineyards so lush (an average of 256 sunny days each year) also makes Santa Rosa an ideal location for solar panels.1
Whether you’re interested in saving money or you just want to be a part of the local solar scene, Sunrun has you covered with solar plans and products to meet just about any budget or lifestyle.
The notion behind Sunrun Brightbox should feel right at home in Santa Rosa: you keep what you produce locally, and use it locally.
Brightbox is our premier battery storage technology, designed to give you better control your savings while also providing a powerful source of backup energy in the event of an outage. When your panels generate excess energy, Brightbox can store some it for later. When energy rates peak in the evenings, you can draw on your stored energy to limit your reliance on the grid. Even better, if the power ever goes out due to an emergency or outage, you can draw on Brightbox to provide backup energy, meaning you have running lights, a cold fridge or even an outlet in which to charge your phone.
With a solar lease, it’s possible to make the switch for as little as $0 down. With our BrightSave™ Monthly plan, we’ll customize a setup to meet your unique needs. We’ll also handle the installation process and provide monitoring and maintenance for the next 20 years. In return, you make a low monthly payment to cover the cost of the power your panels produce.
If you want to really lock in your savings with a solar lease, however, our BrightSave™ Prepaid plan allows you to prepay for 20 years of electricity at today’s rates. That’s two decades worth of electricity in which you’ll never experience rising utility rates.
If you’d like to skip the lease and go right to ownership, we’ve got you covered. With our BrightBuy™ plan, you make a simple upfront payment to cover the cost of your equipment. We’ll still handle installation, and we’ll protect your roof with our industry-leading warranty while we’re at it. If you want to spread that cost out, our BrightAdvantage™ plan is designed to provide you with a solar loan. You make fixed monthly payments without the concern of any hidden costs or provisions.
Whichever route you go, you’ll be receive some great additional perks – like a federal tax credit – and the peace of mind of decades worth of solar savings.
