Solar + Brightbox™

Add Brightbox, Sunrun’s battery storage service, to your solar installation in Fort Collins. This can help keep you powered 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 for blackouts year after year.

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 Fort Collins battery storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge until the grid’s restored.

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

You can monitor your Fort Collins solar energy production and storage daily with the online dashboard and mobile app.

Brightbox is more than a solar battery in Fort Collins. Our monthly lease and prepaid plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your system runs smoothly.
