Learn About Sunrun’s Relationship with Your California Utility 

We work with various utility companies in California to bring you reliable clean energy each and every day. We offer both a purchase and PPA or solar lease options in most major CA utilities, including - PG&E, SCE, SDG&E and LADWP. If you get electricity from one of the other utility companies listed below, we may offer a purchase option only. Please contact us to discuss.

Going Solar and Staying Connected

When you go solar with Sunrun in California, you stay connected to the utility grid. This allows you to make the most of the electricity your panels produce by net metering your solar power. When your panels generate more power than your home needs, the excess is sent into the utility grid. You receive credit for this power, which then offsets future purchases of electricity from the grid. This lowers your utility bills and maximizes the benefits of your solar system.

We’re Here to Guide You to Energy Success

At Sunrun, we believe empowering people means empowering a greener, safer, and more resilient future for everyone. But our role in California isn’t just to help you save money with solar and combat climate change together.

We’re also committed to providing you with information, guides, and advice in all matters related to solar. We’re here to help you understand everything from your utility’s NEM bill, Time-of-Use (TOU) rates, green and sustainable initiatives; as well as any additional topics you want to be aware of as a California solar customer — so together, we can create a planet run by the sun.
