Solar + Brightbox™

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

Between 2008 and 2017, more than 2.4 million South Carolina residents were affected by power outages.1

A blackout can happen at any time. Some are short, but others can go on for hours or days at a time.

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 Summerville 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's dangerous for your health.9

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

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