BrightBox™ New York

Solar + Energy Storage

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.

A power outage is always alarming and never expected - but you can be prepared with Brightbox™.

Keeping Your Lights On

Sunrun now offers New York homeowners a battery energy storage solution during blackouts. A power outage is always alarming and never expected - but you can be better prepared to keep your lights on, your food cold and your computers humming with Sunrun BrightBox™. And we’ve partnered with LG Chem, a world leader in lithium-ion batteries to bring you a battery backup system you can trust.

Sunrun BrightBox™ Benefits for New Yorkers

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.
