Learn About Sunrun’s Relationship with Your Electric Company in NJ
Sunrun’s solar lease and purchase plans are available to most New Jersey State utility customers, including Atlantic City Electric, Orange & Rockland, and PSE&G.
If you get your power from a different energy company than the ones listed below, we Sunrunners can still help you go solar with a solar purchase plan. Please contact our team of solar advisors to discuss the available options so you can create your own clean, renewable energy right at home.
Going Solar and Staying Connected
When you choose to install solar panels in New Jersey, you stay connected to the electric grid. Staying connected to the grid means that if, for any reason, your home solar system can’t produce the energy you need during the day, like on a stormy day, you can continue using your devices and appliances as you normally do.
But there’s a bright side to this, see, with the New Jersey’s net metering (NEM) program, every time your panels create more solar energy than you need, the excess is sent back to the grid, and you get a credit to use on your next billing cycle.1 With NEM, you make the most of your home solar system because you’re never leaving energy on the table.
You Have the Power to Change New Jersey’s Energy Future
At Sunrun, we believe empowering people means empowering a cleaner and better future for everyone in New Jersey. In fact, by installing solar panels, today you’ll become part of The State of New Jersey’s Energy Master Plan, which has set the ambitious goal of converting NJ to 100% renewable energy by 2050.2
Yet, our role in New Jersey 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.3
We Sunrunners are also committed to providing you with information, guides, and advice in all things solar — so you can learn about your New Jersey electricity company’s NEM bill, Time-of-Use rates, sustainable initiatives, solar incentives; along with any other information you need to know of as a solar consumer. This way, together, we can ensure New Jersey keeps shining bright for you and generations to come.
