Frequently Asked Questions

Leasing and buying solar panels come with their own unique advantages.

Sunrun gives you the option to buy your solar panels. When you own your home solar system, you'll get all the solar benefits. This means solar incentives like state solar rebates, Solar Renewable Energy Credits (SRECs), and the federal solar tax credit will go directly to you. You could also recoup the cost of your investment thanks to the potential value the system adds to your home; however, you’ll be responsible for any repairs and maintenance your solar system needs outside the scope of your home solar system’s manufacturer warranty.

Going solar can be costly. That’s why Sunrun also offers stress-free solar leasing, so you can go solar for as little as $0 down. You’ll only be responsible for paying a low monthly bill or pay the lease up-front. Because Sunrun owns the system, we’ll also provide 24/7 monitoring and maintenance during the length of your agreement, free of charge. That means clean, worry-free energy that’s guaranteed to save you money, and if it breaks, we’ll fix it!

See how much you could save with Sunrun and get connected with our Solar Advisors to see what plan is right for you.

With our system purchase plan, you’ll be able to buy a home solar system outright through Sunrun. When you purchase your own system, you'll directly receive the federal and state solar incentives, tax credits, and rebates for which you are qualified.

Figuring out if your home is good for solar relies on several 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 suitable for solar, get in touch with one of our Solar Advisors. They’ll run a personalized analysis of your home with BrightPath™, our proprietary solar design technology. We’ll only recommend solar if it’s the right fit for your home energy needs.

Every household will need a different number of panels based on how much energy it uses, the climate in the area, and how much direct sunlight hits its roof. To learn more about these factors, click here.

We’ll figure out how much power a system will need to produce to power your home during your free consultation.

Solar panels can last anywhere between 25 to 30 years, sometimes more. This doesn’t mean that 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 household's energy needs. With proper care and maintenance, you can expect to receive significant solar benefits for the next 20 to 30 years.

Solar panels could help you build home value. Fortunately, since most states offer property tax exemptions for home solar systems, you may not need to pay extra for the potential value your system adds to your home. Going solar is the gift that keeps on giving!

Studies show that owning solar panels could potentially increase your property value. For example, solar homes in California sell for $20,000 more on average, while solar homes in other states sold for about $15,000 more. With numbers like that, you could likely recover the cost of your system if you decide to sell your home. So you'll not only enjoy clean, reliable energy, you’ll rest easy knowing that you made a smart investment.

Once you’re approved for a solar installation, 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 perform your solar installation. We only partner with the top-rated solar installers, so rest assured that you’ll end up with the highest-quality solar installation possible.

When your installation 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.
