We help you close the sale with the home buyer

Does the homebuyer want less cash out of pocket? No problem. We have a zero down option. Do they want to own their own system? Are they looking for the peace of mind that comes with battery backup? We work with you to tailor the solar offering for each new community. Sunrun helps you close the sale with the customer by offering one of the most comprehensive suite of financing options in the solar industry. In fact, we are the only provider to offer a lease option on solar systems with integrated storage.

We make it easy for the buyer to understand these financing options and choose the one that fits their needs by offering both in-person and over-the-phone consultations determined by customer or builder preference.
