Our country’s aging power grid is working overtime and unable to keep up with our increasing electricity demands.4 Fortunately, it could be cost-effective to team up with a New Mexico solar company like Sunrun. A switch to solar can give you protection during outages, boost your control over electricity bills, and reduce your carbon footprint for decades. This will also help build a more modern and resilient energy system that uses clean, local power.

As you know, summer temperatures in cities such as Albuquerque and Santa Fe can quickly climb to 90 degrees or higher.5,6 If you go solar, you can have access to the affordable and reliable energy you need to keep your home cool during New Mexico’s hottest months.

Solar + Brightbox™

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

More than 917,000 New Mexico residents were affected by power outages from 2008 to 2017.1

High demand for electricity in summer and winter, as well as unpredictable weather, put New Mexico at a greater risk for blackouts year after year.

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 New Mexico 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.11

Brightbox is fueled by the sun, so you can forget about the hassle of buying expensive gas and diesel.

Our monthly lease and prepaid plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your system works smoothly. This perk sets Brightbox apart from the average solar battery in New Mexico.

*We recommend contacting a tax professional to accurately determine the impact of the solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC) on your federal taxes.

**One Tesla Powerwall stores 13.5 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of usable electricity, which can be used to back up the home for a day. An LG Chem solar battery holds 9.8 kWh, which can be used to back up essential parts of the home from 8 to 12 hours. 

***Customer’s ability to monetize rebates, incentives, and tax credits depends on several factors, including, without limitation, continued state subsidization of these policies, the applicable Sunrun product type, and whether a customer purchases or leases a home solar system from Sunrun.
