Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Qualifying Sunrun customers can secure long-term savings for as little as $0 down with BrightSave Monthly. The benefits of solar are rolled up into a low, predictable monthly rate and savings on your electricity bill. Contact our solar advisors today for more information.

Figuring out if your home is good for solar relies on a number of factors, like where your house is located, the angle of your roof, roof shading, and how old your home is.

In order to understand if your home is a good candidate for solar, get in touch with one of our Solar Advisors. They’ll run a personalized analysis of your home with our proprietary solar design technology, BrightPath™. We’ll only recommend solar if it’s the right fit for your home energy needs and profile.

Every household is requires a different number of panels based on how much energy your family uses, your climate, and how much direct sunlight hits your roof (for more on these factors, click here).

During your free consultation, we’ll determine how much power a solar system will need to produce in order to power your home.

The difference between a solar lease and solar PPA is simple: With a lease, you pay a fixed monthly “rent” in return for use of the system. With a PPA you pay a fixed price per kWh for power generated.

When you sign up for a free quote, our in-house Solar Advisors will work with you to determine how much you can expect to save on your monthly energy bill. This relies on factors like your utility, how much electricity you use and how much sunlight your home gets. We’ll only recommend solar if it’s the right fit for your home energy needs and profile.

All of our solar equipment is backed by robust warranties. When you choose BrightSave, your solar system will also come with 24/7 monitoring and maintenance. So if it breaks? We’ll fix it, free of charge. Learn more about our Comprehensive Home Solar System Support here.

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 solar production over the next 20 to 30 years. BrightSave Monthly  also comes with a the comprehensive Sunrun Guarantee that’ll keep your system in top shape for years to come.

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.
