Solar Panels and Home Battery Storage Puts You in Control in Hawaii

Living in paradise is truly extraordinary, yet there’s no denying that Hawaiian life can be rather expensive, too. Just the cost of electricity alone is more than twice the national average1 — the highest residential electricity prices in the county.2 Luckily, the Aloha State also happens to be a paradise for solar energy, which means homeowners like you could save thousands by making the switch with a company like Sunrun.

As the largest home solar provider in the U.S., we have 10+ years of experience hiring locally and helping Americans enjoy a cleaner, more affordable and renewable energy future.

**Customer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a customer purchases or leases a solar system from Sunrun.

Control Costs With Hawaii Solar

The way we see it, solar represents two main things: clean, renewable power and major cost savings on electricity. And when you see both in action, it’s a thing of beauty. That’s why we offer solar plans and home energy storage products to meet just about any budget or lifestyle.

Go Solar for Little to $0 Down — and No Strings Attached

This means no monthly solar bill, no risk of rising electricity rates and two decades of worry-free energy. 

Hawaii Residents Can Go Solar & Save with Our Brightbox™ Solar & Battery Storage Service

It’s time to say “aloha ‘oe” to fossil fuels and “aloha” to clean affordable energy. Hawaii is a powerhouse when it comes to solar, generating enough energy to power 110,000 homes. And as the price of imported fuels continues to rise, there’s never been a better time to go solar.

That’s why more and more Hawaiians are making the switch to home solar power through Sunrun Brightbox, Sunrun’s innovative solar and energy storage system. With most utilities in Hawaii hitting their net metering caps, going solar with energy storage is the only way to still go solar. Don’t worry, with Brightbox you won’t lose out on a single ray of savings from the sun.

Sunrun Brightbox is the smart solution to going solar. Brightbox combines solar panel energy generation, energy storage and energy management into a customized solution that provides homeowners clean and affordable energy day and night.
