Solar + Brightbox™

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

A power outage can happen when you least expect it. Some are short, while others can go on for hours or days at a time.

Blackouts can cause significant health and safety risks to millions of New Jerseyans.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 Salem County battery 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 dangerous for your health.10

You can monitor your Salem County solar power production and storage daily with the online dashboard and mobile app.

All monthly plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your system works smoothly. This perk sets Brightbox apart from the average Salem County solar battery.
