People living in Connecticut pay some of the most expensive electricity prices in the country. In fact, electric rates in Connecticut are more than 45% higher compared to other states.1 Not only that, the U.S. power grid isn’t able to keep up with our increasing demand for more electricity.2
On the bright side, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) shows home solar costs in the Nutmeg State have dropped 34% over the last five years.3 So teaming up with a Connecticut solar company like Sunrun is now more affordable than ever. Going solar allows you to take control of your electric bills, reduce your carbon emissions and help build a modern energy system that uses clean local power.
As the nation's largest residential solar, storage and energy services company,4 Sunrun works to ensure you can go solar in the simplest way possible. Check out our solar plans to discover which one works best for your budget and unique energy needs.

As a home solar system owner, you’re eligible for excellent Connecticut solar tax credits, such as a federal solar tax credit6* and a property tax exemption on the added home value from your system’s cost.7
Also, the Residential Solar Investment Program (RSIP), administered by the Connecticut Green Bank, offers you an upfront cost reduction of $0.463 for every watt of solar installed in your home (up to 10 kilowatts). Meaning, if you install a 6-kilowatt system, you would receive $2,778 right off the bat.8
Plus, home solar systems are designed to last 30 years or longer, so we’re sure you’ll be a happy home solar owner for decades.
Connecticut increased its overall renewable energy sources target to 40% by 2030, up from the previous goal of 27% by 2020.9 You can help Connecticut achieve these goals by choosing to create your own affordable, clean energy with Sunrun today.
Yet, going solar in Connecticut won’t just reduce your carbon emissions. With the state’s net metering program, which credits home solar consumers for the electricity they add to the grid,10 you’ll have better control over your power and the price you pay for it.
