Sunrun: New York’s Solar Panels and Battery Storage Provider

New Yorkers Can Go Solar and Save Thousands in Incentives

New York residents are eligible for state and federal solar incentives that could also save you thousands in your first four years of ownership. Add in plummeting solar prices1 and cheap, stable solar energy rates for the next 20 years, and solar panels and battery storage are a no-brainer for New Yorkers.


Solar Panels in New York Keep The Lights Bright

New York might not be known for its weather, but here’s what you might not know - New York sunshine is plenty strong for solar. New York solar and battery storage is already powering more than 193,000 New Yorker’s homes.2 Last year, Tri-State families installed nearly 800 megawatts of solar power on their homes - double the solar installations of sunny Arizona.3

And thanks to initiatives like Governor Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision4 and the nation’s second best solar tax credits,5 more New Yorkers than ever are going solar and saving big.

Sunrun: New York's Top Solar Company

Sunrun is the leading residential solar power provider, with hundreds of thousands of customers across the country. But whether you live in a Brooklyn brownstone, a Long Island colonial or a Westchester tudor, you know that things are done differently in New York.

Sunrun’s New York team knows this, and knows how to make solar work for the Empire State. With thousands of existing customers and a partnership with National Grid to reach hundreds of thousands more,6 Sunrun is committed to bringing solar panels and storage to as many New Yorkers as possible. And while other New York solar companies have come and gone, Sunrun has been one of the top New York solar companies for over four years -- and we’re here to stay.
