We also offer solar loans with monthly payments, a prepaid solar lease, and the option to purchase solar panels outright. With Sunrun, your journey to renewable energy has never been easier and our team will work with you to find the best solar financing for your home and your family.

​​Once you’re approved for installing solar panels, your home will undergo a site assessment so our expert Solar Technicians can work on and present your system design.

After that, our Solar Design Experts will make any necessary adjustments to your solar 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 begin your solar installation. We only partner with top-rated solar installers, so rest assured that you’ll end up with the highest-quality solar system on your roof.

When your home solar system is complete, the city or county will perform a final inspection of your system. Once it’s approved, it’ll be connected to the grid, and we’ll submit your documents to your utility company. After your utility company grants Permission to Operate (PTO), you’ll be ready to power your home with the sun. Whether you’re buying solar panels, doing a solar lease, or getting a solar loan, when you go with Sunrun, we’re with you every step of the installation process.

Want to learn more? Here’s a detailed timeline of our installation process.

The electricity generated by a home solar system is ruled by its rated power output. Yet, it’s dependent on other factors as well to best serve your energy usage. These include panel efficiency, temperature sensitivity, shading, and the angle of your roof. A roof’s angle, though, has less impact on panel performance than the direction it faces. Top production occurs when panels face south a tilt angle of 30° to 45°.5

Additionally, available sunlight varies by location. This brief equation shows how sunlight and a solar panel’s specifications turn into the amount of power generated.

Let’s say on a good day, you average 5 hours of direct sunlight. Multiply 5 hours of sunlight x 290 watts from a solar panel = 1,450 watts or roughly 1.5 kilowatt hours per day. That’s about 500-550 kilowatt hours of energy per year from each panel on your roof.4 How does that compare to your annual energy usage?
