Across California, power outages are on the rise. Climate change is making wildfires more destructive and deadlier than in the past, and the threat of wildfires has become a year-long battle. To keep communities safe, California electric companies are implementing Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS), also known as preemptive rolling blackouts, during extreme weather or wildfire conditions.8
Wildfire conditions can strike when you least expect it, and PSPS could happen several times per year. Fortunately, with Brightbox, Sunrun’s home solar and energy storage system, now you can have the backup power you need and the energy security you deserve, day or night.

In addition, Brightbox comes with free professional maintenance and monitoring for 25 years to help prolong your battery’s life. Brightbox isn’t just a solar battery in Tracy; it’s a clean, affordable and reliable energy solution that puts power in your hands.
