New Jersey residents hit by blackouts from 2008 to 2017.1
New Jersey’s residential electricity rates vs. the national average.2
New Jersey is in the top ten states in the U.S. for solar.3
With the falling cost of rooftop solar panels and home batteries,3,4 along with an attractive mix of solar incentives,5 going solar with a New Jersey solar company like Sunrun is a cost-effective way to prepare for the future starting today. A switch to solar will protect your home from outages, boost your control over electric bills, and reduce your carbon footprint for decades
A power outage can happen at any time. Some are short, but others can go on for hours or days at a time.
Outages can cause significant health and safety risks to millions of New Jerseyans.7
For as little as $0 down, Brightbox can keep your devices and appliances running during outages, cloudy days, rainy afternoons, or at night.
Every time the sun is out, Brightbox stores clean and affordable back-up power for later use.
Brightbox is the New Jersey battery storage solution that puts you in control. It automatically turns on during an outage and will recharge as many times as possible until the grid is restored.
Unlike generators, Brightbox doesn’t run on fossil fuels, which produce carbon monoxide (CO) that is dangerous for your health.8
Brightbox is fueled by the sun, so you can forget about the hassle of buying expensive gas and diesel.
All monthly plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your system is working smoothly. This benefit sets Brightbox apart from the average New Jersey solar battery.
