Solar + Brightbox™

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

From 2008 to 2017, New Mexico endured more than 917,000 power outages.1

High demand for electricity in summer and winter, along with unpredictable weather, put New Mexico at a higher risk of blackouts.

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 Albuquerque 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 is dangerous for your health.9

You can monitor your Albuquerque solar energy production and storage daily with the online dashboard and mobile app.

All Brightbox monthly plans include 24/7 proactive monitoring and maintenance to ensure your system runs smoothly. This benefit sets it apart from other solar batteries in Albuquerque.
