If you get your power from a different electric company than the ones listed below, we might still have a solar purchase plan option for you. If you’re interested in going solar, please contact us to discuss your available solar options.
Going Solar and Staying Connected
When you create and store your own renewable energy with solar panels and a home battery in New York, you stay connected to the electric grid.1 But this is a good thing. 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, if the panels on your roof produce more energy than you need, with New York’s Value of Distributed Energy Resources (VDER) program, the excess is sent back to the grid, and you receive a cash credit that can roll over into your future billing cycles.2 This gives more control over your home electricity and the price you pay for it.
Help Us Build a Cleaner, More Resilient Energy System for All New Yorkers
At Sunrun, we believe empowering people means empowering a cleaner and better future for everyone in New York.
By choosing to go solar now, you’ll help Governor Cuomo’s Reforming the Energy Vision (REV), an energy strategy created to cut down 40% of New York’s carbon emissions and ensure 70% of the state’s electricity comes from renewable resources by 2030.3
Yet, our role in New York isn’t just to help you reduce your carbon emissions, take control of your home electricity.
Sunrun is also committed to providing you with information, guides and advice in all things solar so you can learn about your New York electric company’s solar bill, Time-of-Use rates, sustainable initiatives, solar incentives; along with any other information you want to know of as a solar consumer. This way, together, we can change the way we power New York.
