New York: Power Through the Storm with Sunrun Brightbox™

5 years ago, Hurricane Sandy left millions of people without power. As natural disasters continue to affect the East Coast, New York is still exploring opportunities to power the state with clean energy while increasing the reliability of its energy grid.

In fact, a key part of Governor Cuomo’s “Reforming the Energy Vision” is building a clean, resilient, and affordable energy system for all New Yorkers1. Under current discussion are target incentives for energy storage, and new rates structures to incentivize the adoption of energy storage 2. BrightboxTM solar battery service is only available for new Sunrun customers.

Sunrun Brightbox™ Benefits for New Yorkers

  1. Solar Power & Battery Backup During an Outage
    Historically, power outages are most common in New York during extreme summer heat3. And as New Yorkers well know, disruptions also occur during severe weather storms. But no matter what the cause - if there is a blackout? Your Sunrun Brightbox™ battery will continue to power your home day and night. Unlike a generator (which needs gas) your Sunrun Brightbox™ automatically re-fuels itself when the sun comes back up the next morning.
  2. Financial Flexibility
    Our Sunrun Brightbox™ battery solution is designed to provide you with options. Power your home the way you want by owning, financing or leasing Sunrun’s premium solar + energy storage solution. (You can lease today and start saving immediately!)
  3. Simplicity
    At Sunrun, we make going solar simple. We customize your Brightbox system to meet the unique needs of your home and lifestyle. All of the paperwork and labor is handled by our team of experienced solar system installers while you enjoy reliable, affordable energy.

Keeping Your Lights On

Sunrun now offers New York homeowners a battery energy storage solution during blackouts.

And we’ve partnered with LG Chem, a world leader in lithium-ion batteries to bring you a battery backup system you can trust.
