With a solar power purchase agreement, or PPA, you pay for the power, not the panels. The amount you pay is based on a per kilowatt-hour rate for the electricity produced by your solar panels, and is usually lower than what the local utility charges for electricity.

With BrightSave Prepaid, can go solar with just one, up front payment. Plus, it’ll include savings you might get from the federal solar tax credit and other solar rebates. Not monthly fees or mounds of paperwork, just pure solar savings.

When you choose BrightSave Prepaid we’ll also actively monitor and maintain your solar panels over the life of your agreement, so all you have to do is enjoy worry-free solar savings.

Once you’re approved for a solar installation, your home will undergo a site assessment and an expert solar technician will visit your home to confirm your system design.

After that, our Solar Design Experts will make any necessary adjustments to your design and get your final approval. Once it’s approved, we’ll submit your design to the city for permitting, which can take up to eight weeks. From there, either Sunrun or one of our local certified partners will  perform your solar installation. We only partner with the top-rated solar installers , so you can rest assured knowing you’ll have the highest quality solar installation available.

When your installation is finished, the city or county will perform a final inspection on your system. Once it’s approved, it’ll be connected to the grid and we’ll submit your documents to the utility company. After your utility company grants Permission to Operate, you’re ready to start powering your home with the sun!

Solar panels can last anywhere between 25 to 30 years, sometimes more. But this doesn’t mean the panels on your roof will stop producing electricity after a couple of decades. It just means their energy production will decrease by what solar panel manufacturers consider optimal to meet the average American family’s energy needs.

With the proper care and maintenance, you can expect to receive significant solar production over the next  20 to 30 years. BrightSave also comes with a comprehensive solar panel service guarantee that’ll keep your system in top shape for years to come.
