Solar + Brightbox™

Add Brightbox, Sunrun’s battery storage service, to your solar installation in Hartford. This can help keep you powered during outages, cloudy days, rainy afternoons, or at night.

Power outages impacted more than three million Connecticut residents from 2008 to 2017.1

As extreme weather events continue to affect the aging U.S. power grid, blackouts threaten to be more frequent and longer-lasting.9

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 and affordable back-up power for later use.

Brightbox is the Hartford back-up 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 toxic and dangerous for your health.10

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

Our monthly lease and prepaid plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your system runs smoothly. This benefit sets Brightbox apart from the average solar battery in Hartford.
