BrightSave™: Solar Lease in Illinois

We have two easy solar leasing options. With BrightSave™ Monthly, you can go solar and save on your monthly electricity costs for as little as $0 down. Or, you can opt for BrightSave™ Prepaid to lock in the best value Sunrun has to offer.

Go Solar for as Little as $0 Down

Pay for the power, not the panels. When you choose BrightSave™ Monthly, you could go solar for as little as $0 down and reduce your utility bill by 50% or more. We handle the equipment and installation, and in return you pay a low, fixed rate for the power your panels produce.

You get all the perks of a professional managed and maintained system along with predictable electricity rates, no strings attached. Plus, we’ll handle maintenance and monitoring during the life of your agreement. We’ll even guarantee your roof against leaks for any penetrations made during installation. All you have to do is sit back and soak up the savings.

Maximum Savings, No Monthly Payments

Looking for a solar lease with maximum savings? BrightSave™ Prepaid is as simple as it gets. With a one-time upfront payment, you’re locking in 20 years of electricity – and 20 years of savings. No monthly bill. No hidden costs. Just pure solar savings.

BrightSave Prepaid comes with all the same perks as BrightSave Monthly: 20 years of peace of mind with free installation, 24/7 monitoring, maintenance, repairs, insurance, and 10-year roof coverage.

And if you ever decide to move? For both BrightSave Monthly or Prepaid, we’ve got a whole team standing by to help you easily transfer your contract to the new homeowner. Trust us, we’ve thought of everything.
