How It's Different

Financing for Your Needs

Go solar on your terms. Buy or lease—discover financing options for Sunrun solar panels.

With Sunrun, you can lock in a predictable rate for 25 years for as little as $0 down, or you can own your system outright.

Customized Back-up Power with Brightbox™

Sunrun’s Brightbox™ is a solar battery storage solution that lets you choose between whole home back-up or just the essentials. Brightbox™ is more than just solar battery storage — it’s a holistic home solar service that saves the power generated from Sunrun’s rooftop solar panels for when you and your family need it most.

Worry-Free Performance

Sunrun’s solar lease or PPA comes with 100% peace of mind. If your system and solar battery don’t produce the expected amount of power, Sunrun will pay you the difference. What’s more, if it makes more energy than you use, you won’t be penalized.

Go Local

Sunrun partners with the top solar companies in your area. The solar company or its partner local solar installers will handle the solar installation. Not only will you be helping the planet, you’ll also be supporting your local economy.

How you pay

Sunrun’s flexible solar financing options give you the power to choose the best solution for your budget.

Monthly Solar Lease/Power Purchase Agreement (PPA)

For as little as $0 down, you can lock in predictable monthly payments for 25 years. Sunrun owns and maintains the system. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy clean, worry-free solar power.

Full Amount Solar Lease

Prepay for up to 25 years of clean energy for your home and protect yourself from rising utility costs. Like Sunrun’s monthly solar lease, you’ll enjoy 24/7 monitoring and maintenance for the life of your agreement.

Buy the System

When you purchase home solar panels and battery storage outright, federal and state solar incentives will go directly to you.

Monthly Solar Loan

Pay towards owning your system through predictable monthly loan payments. You’ll still be eligible for federal and state solar incentives.
