Solar + Brightbox™

Add Brightbox, Sunrun's battery storage system, to your solar installation in South Jersey. This can help keep your devices and appliances running during outages, cloudy days, rainy afternoons, or at night.

A power outage can happen at any moment. Some are short, but 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 South Jersey battery 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.10

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 works smoothly. This benefit sets Brightbox apart from the average South Jersey solar battery.
