Solar + Brightbox™

Add Brightbox, Sunrun’s battery storage service, to your solar installation in Somerset. This can help you keep your devices and appliances running during outages, cloudy days, rainy afternoons, or at night.

A power outage can happen at any time. 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.8

Brightbox helps 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 Somerset back-up energy storage solution that puts you in control. It can turn on during an outage and will work to recharge until the grid is restored.

Unlike generators, Brightbox doesn’t run on fossil fuels, which produce carbon monoxide (CO) that’s dangerous for your health.9

You can monitor your Somerset 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 Somerset solar battery.
