Massachusetts Utility Resources

Learn how Sunrun works with your electric company in MA. Enjoy lower rates when you go solar today.

Sunrun’s solar lease and purchase plans — with or without a home battery — are available in most of Massachusetts, and we work with several electric companies in the state, including Eversource, National Grid and Unitil.

But if you get your power from a different utility than the ones listed below, we may still be able to help you create your own clean, renewable energy with a solar purchase plan. Please contact our solar advisors to discuss the available solar options for your home in Massachusetts.

Going solar in MA and staying connected to the grid

When you install solar panels & a home battery in Massachusetts, you stay connected to the electric grid.1 Staying connected to the grid with a home solar system means that if, for any reason, your solar battery isn’t fully charged to give you the energy you need to power your home at night, you can still use your devices and appliances as you normally do.

Besides, when the panels on your roof create more energy than you need, thanks to the state’s Net Metering (NEM)2 and Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART)3 programs, you can receive incentive payments and bill credits from your electric company to help you reduce your home electricity costs and enjoy greater peace of mind.

Join us to create a brighter, more sustainable future for Massachusetts

At Sunrun, we believe empowering people means empowering a cleaner, safer, and more resilient future for everyone in the Bay State. In fact, by going solar, today you can help Massachusetts’s Global Warming Solutions Act (GWSA), which has set the goal to lower the state’s carbon emissions 10% to 25% by 2020, and to 80% by 2050.4

Yet, our role in Massachusetts isn’t just to help you reduce your carbon emissions, take control of your electric bills, and potentially save you thousands of dollars in electricity costs during the next 25 years.5
We are also committed to providing you with information, guides, and advice in all things solar — so you can learn about your MA electric company’s NEM bill, Time-of-Use rates, sustainable initiatives, solar power performance payments, and rebates; as well as any other information you need to know of as a Massachusetts solar consumer.

Together, we can build a cleaner, more affordable and reliable future for you and your community in Massachusetts.
