Sunrun Brings Affordable Home Solar to New Hampshire

Leading Residential Solar Company Now Available in New Northeastern Market

San Francisco, CA6/2/2015

Sunrun, the largest dedicated residential solar company in the U.S., today announced it is now offering affordable solar service to homeowners in New Hampshire. Residents will now be able to make the switch to home solar with little to no money down, and can begin saving up to 20 percent on their electricity bills immediately. Sunrun will design, install, finance, insure, monitor and maintain the system, while homeowners just pay for the clean power it generates at a lower rate than they currently pay their utility.

“With New Hampshire utilities projecting rate hikes up to 50 percent this coming winter, homeowners will look for alternatives that can help lower their electric bill,” said Ed Steins, general manager of Sunrun Northeast. “We’re pleased to offer residents the choice of clean solar energy that is more affordable and that we make simple to install.”

Sunrun will offer its solar service to residents who currently receive their electricity from Eversource and Unitil, initially in the areas surrounding Nashua, Merrimack and Hampstead, with plans to expand to Concord, Manchester, Portsmouth and the rest of New Hampshire later this year. Homeowners can learn about and purchase solar for their homes in a variety of convenient ways including through Sunrun direct sales representatives, online, and on the phone.

“Sunrun’s entry into New Hampshire will generate more than 30 clean energy jobs in the state this year, with positions ranging from sales consultants to electricians to solar installers,” Steins added. Interested applicants can visit Sunrun’s Careers page to view and apply for open positions. With the addition of New Hampshire, Sunrun solar service is now available to homeowners in 14 states.

As the first company to introduce solar as a service to American homeowners, Sunrun has reinvented the way people buy electricity. Sunrun gives homeowners access to the smartest energy source – sunlight – and takes care of everything so families can focus on more important things, like putting savings back in their pockets each month.
