Life on the Big Island tends towards being just that — big. And this also applies to the cost you pay for residential electricity, which is over 200% greater vs. the national average.1 These are the highest rates in the United States!2
But don’t despair, you live in one of the best states for solar in our country. In fact, Hawaii’s legislature has set a big goal when it comes to renewable energy: 100% by 2050.3 Meaning, no more fossil fuels! So if you’re ready to reduce your carbon footprint, while saving thousands on electricity bills, Sunrun is here to help.
Here at Sunrun, we truly love solar, and we understand its potential to help homeowners like you save on their monthly electricity costs. That’s why we make it our goal to make solar as simple and affordable as possible. And with solar plans and home energy storage products designed to fit just about any budget, we’re confident you’ll love solar just as much as us.
With BrightSave™ Monthly, you can start saving up to 20% on your monthly electricity costs** for $0 down. With this plan, we’ll customize a solar setup to meet your unique needs, and we’ll even provide system maintenance and monitoring for the up to 25 years. In short, you’ll pay for the power, not for the panels.
But if you want to lock in long-term savings with a 100% peace of mind, our BrightSave™ Prepaid plan lets you pay upfront for years of electricity at today’s prices. This means no monthly solar bills, no concerns about rising electricity rates, and two decades of worry-free energy. Now that’s solar made simple.
Brightbox™ is a holistic solar storage service with a home battery unit that offers you advanced control over your home energy needs. See, during the day while the sun is out and your panels are generating more electricity than you require at the time, Brightbox will store the surplus for later use. And as the sun sets and your solar panels begin to cool off, it will draw on that stored energy, limiting your reliance on the expensive power coming from the grid, and helping you to save money in the process.
This also comes in extra handy during pesky power outages because you’ll be able to keep your devices and appliances running for up to 10 hours.* Plus, with Time-of-Use rates, you can save more money by shifting your energy use away from expensive high-demand on-peak rates.4 Welcome to the future of home energy storage.
If you’d prefer to jump right into ownership, we’ve got you (and your roof) covered. Purchase your solar system from Sunrun with BrightBuy™ and own your system and your savings for life, while building equity in your home.
Of if you’d like to avoid the upfront expense of ownership, we can set you up with a simple solar loan through our BrightAdvantage™ plan. Simple means fixed monthly payments, no hidden costs, and competitive rates.
Best of all, becoming a solar owner entitles you to additional benefits, astounding ones like a 30% federal tax credit, and a state tax credit of up to 35% of the cost of your system. So a standard 5-kW system will net you an estimated $11,000 back from both credits.5 Energy independence is yours for the taking!
If you were to look outside right now, odds are the sun is shining. And since solar power in “The Aloha State” is almost 240% more cost-effective than the rest of the nation,6 not taking the solar leap could end up costing you $36,000 or more in electricity bills over the next 20 - 30 years. Think of all the savings you’re missing out on!
