Solar + Brightbox™

Add Brightbox, Sunrun's battery storage service, to your solar installation in Arvada. This can help keep your devices and appliances running during outages, cloudy days, rainy afternoons, or at night.

Power outages impacted more than 2.3 million Colorado residents from 2008 to 2017.1

High demand for electricity in summer and winter, along with unpredictable weather, put Colorado at a greater risk of blackouts.

With Brightbox can help you back up your entire home with a Tesla Powerwall, or you can back up just the rooms you need with an LG Chem solar battery.**

When the sun is out, Brightbox can store clean, safe, and affordable back-up power for later use.

Brightbox is the Arvada battery storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge until the grid is restored.

Unlike generators, Brightbox doesn’t run on fossil fuels, which produce carbon monoxide (CO) that is poisonous and dangerous for your health.9

You can monitor your Arvada solar energy production and storage every day with the online dashboard and mobile app.

Brightbox is more than a solar battery in Arvada. All monthly plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your system operates smoothly.
