Puerto Rico can be powered by clean, reliable, and affordable energy. Sunrun, the nation’s largest residential solar, storage, and energy services company, is here to make that happen. By harnessing power from the world’s most brilliant natural resource, the sun, Sunrun is providing Puerto Ricans access to their own home solar and battery system. This gives people the freedom to create and store their own energy, to use when they need it most.
Our national energy infrastructure is outdated. A 100-year old technology isn’t going to rebuild Puerto Rico, but today’s technology can. That’s why home solar panels and batteries are going to be the key to energy independence. Sunrun’s Brightbox™, our solar-as-a-service and home battery, gives Puerto Rican households an affordable solution for clean, resilient, and reliable energy at a low-upfront cost.
Puerto Rico deserves better than the status quo. That’s why Sunrun is enabling Puerto Ricans to rebuild a cleaner, smarter, and more resilient system.
Sunrun’s Work in Puerto Rico
In the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, we were devastated to see the suffering and destruction caused by power outages and a fragile, obsolete energy system. So we helped. Led by our CEO Lynn Jurich, Sunrun was the first national solar company with boots on the ground, partnering with Empowered By Light and GivePower to donate and install Sunrun solar and battery systems on fire stations in Puerto Rico. Without power, these brave first responders would not have been able to provide emergency services and help their communities.
Since their installation, our solar and battery systems have run uninterrupted 24/7 on these fire stations. Throughout the longest blackout in U.S. history, the firefighters have been able to respond to emergencies and offer vital support to their surrounding communities.
However, this is just the beginning. Now, Puerto Ricans have access to solar-as-a-service and Brightbox home batteries, the same service that has kept fire stations powered since the hurricane.
Brightbox™ Is a Solar Battery Service for Your Home
There’s no doubt that when it comes to protecting yourself when the grid is down, solar battery storage in Puerto Rico is key for powering through outages. That’s why we’re proud to introduce Brightbox Puerto Rico, an integrated service that includes a home battery unit powered by solar panels. Your Brightbox battery kicks in during blackouts, keeping the lights on and your food fresh.
Unlike gas-powered generators, there’s no costly maintenance, health risks, or expensive fuel required with Brightbox. Brightbox's lithium-ion battery is charged by your solar panels, and powers your essentials during an outage for approximately 8 to 12 hours. When the sun comes back out, your panels start recharging your Brightbox battery again.
The time to change our energy system is now. Power lines are expensive and challenging to build across Puerto Rico’s mountainous terrain. They are also vulnerable to catastrophic blackouts, whether by an unpredictable storm or human error.1 Until now, the only options for backup power were dirty, dangerous, and fuel-guzzling generators that are costly to maintain.2 The answer is clear— Brightbox is the smart way to save solar power for your home.
