There were more than 1,200 power outages in Pennsylvania during the last decade, impacting more than 7 million households.1 As extreme weather events continue to affect the East Coast and demand for electricity rises, the U.S. power grid doesn’t have the necessary strength to keep outages from occuring.2
On the bright side, home solar panel prices have hit an all-time low.3 So having access to clean, reliable energy is now more affordable than ever. Going solar with a Pennsylvania solar company like Sunrun is a move that will put you in control of your home electricity and reduce your carbon emissions for decades.
As the nation’s largest residential solar, storage and energy services company,4 Sunrun offers a variety of solar plans to help you go solar, simply and cost-effectively.

**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 solar system from Sunrun.

As a new Pennsylvania home solar owner, you’re eligible for a federal solar tax credit. The federal solar tax credit allows you to claim a considerable amount of your system and installation costs on your federal taxes,5* which means more solar benefits for you and your family.
Plus, with Pennsylvania’s Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs), you can earn cash for every megawatt-hour your system creates. Pennsylvania SRECs prices are worth up to $42.6 Meaning, if you install an average-sized 6-kilowatt system that produces 6 megawatt-hours per year, you could earn about $250 annually by selling your credits in the SREC market.
In addition to the Pennsylvania solar tax credits, home solar systems are designed to last 30 years or longer. So we’re sure you’ll be a happy home solar owner for decades.
Pennsylvania’s Alternative Energy Portfolio Standards Act (AEPS) requires that 18% of the state’s electricity comes from renewable sources by 2021.7 Pennsylvania is already powered by almost 15% clean energy,8 and you can help increase it by going solar with Sunrun today.
But creating your own solar energy in Pennsylvania won’t just reduce your home’s carbon emissions. With the Keystone State’s net metering program, you can earn bill credits for the excess solar energy you generate.9 These credits are used when your panels aren’t producing enough power to meet your needs, like on a cloudy or stormy day.
