Pennsylvania Solar Incentives

Bring Home the Benefits of Solar and Storage with Sunrun


Pennsylvania’s solar price drop over the last five years.1


Solar power in Pennsylvania is more cost-effective vs. other states.2


Pennsylvania is the fourth highest producer of carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions in the country.3

The U.S. power grid doesn't have the strength necessary to handle our current and future electricity demand. This is causing longer and more frequent power interruptions.4 In Pennsylvania alone, power outages affected more than seven million residents from 2008 to 2017.5

Choosing a Pennsylvania solar company like Sunrun to install solar panels with battery storage is a cost-effective way to increase control over electric bills and keep your home powered through blackouts. As the nation’s leading home solar and battery storage company,6 we work so you can create and store your own Pennsylvania solar energy at home while ensuring you get the most benefits possible from your state’s solar incentives.
