Avoid MA Power Outages & Keep The Lights On with Sunrun BrightboxTM Home Battery Storage

320,000 homes lost power after last October’s windstorm whipped through Massachusetts, the most since Superstorm Sandy1. In fact, there were 106 reported blackouts in 2016 alone2. That’s thousands of families without power every three or four days.

Say Goodbye to Outages with Sunrun Brightbox™

Homeowners in MA are, unfortunately, familiar with severe weather and power outages. As a result, emergency generator sales are huge - along with big safety and maintenance issues3. But this New England state is working hard on moving away from harmful fossil fuels and toward solar energy for future generations4.

We, too, are hard at work creating a brighter future for our kids using clean energy and less fossil fuels. Here are three reasons why you should go solar-plus-battery-storage to power your home:

  1. Power Through Outages with Solar Battery Storage

    Your Brightbox battery kicks in during a power outage – keeping your lights on while you stay safely inside and in control. However, many MA residents still use portable generators which must be kept outside due to carbon monoxide poisoning5.

    With Sunrun’s battery there are no harmful effects, no extra noise, and no gas or diesel. Our lithium-ion battery is charged by your solar panels, and powers on during an outage for up to 10 hours. When the sun comes back out - your panels start recharging again. And if you get sun almost everyday? Your battery has unlimited power potential.
  2. Lock In Low Rates With Financing Options

    Even though the price of electricity continues to rise6 in Massachusetts, it’s not too late to lock in a low rate with Sunrun today. Lock in rates with an upfront investment or monthly payments (solar costs plus $1,000), or purchase the system for cash (solar costs plus $8,000). You choose; all our financial options have excellent long term savings.
  3. The Clean Alternative to Diesel or Natural Gas

    Our solar-plus-battery solution is the better alternative to diesel or natural gas generators. And Brightbox saves you money all year long; dirty power generators don’t power savings every day of the year. The research is in - power from the sun is the clean way to energize our planet. Lights out in the neighborhood? Not a problem in your Brilliant Home.
