Sunrun makes going solar--and saving money on electric bills--about as easy as it gets. We purchase the solar panel system and work with the most trusted, local installers to get the panels on the roof. We charge a low, locked-in rate for the solar power the system produces and also take care of the maintenance, monitoring and insurance. Too good to be true? Nope, it's just Sunrun helping everyone and their wallet look...More

  • Our Values



If change means solving one of the biggest challenges of our time by reinventing the way millions of people power their homes with affordable clean energy, then we say bring it on. 

At Sunrun, we believe that each day we walk in the door, we’re doing the single most important thing we can–reinventing how homeowners get energy. It doesn’t hurt that we’re helping the planet, kick starting the economy and having fun while doing it. 

In 2007, Sunrun co-Founders Ed Fenster and Lynn Jurich set out to solve an important problem–the future of energy–by making home solar mainstream. Upfront cost was a huge barrier to home solar adoption, so they invented a way to remove it. In this pioneering model known as solar service, Sunrun allows homeowners to pay for the power, not the panels. This means Sunrun owns, maintains and monitors the system while homeowners pay for the electricity it produces at a low, locked-in rate–saving them money over time. Simply put, Sunrun makes solar easy and affordable. 

With over 50,000 customers across 11 states, we’re the nation’s leading home solar provider. We’ve raised enough capital from investors like U.S. Bancorp to purchase over $1.5 billion in solar systems as well as $145 million in venture capital. Each business day we put $2 million worth of solar onto people’s roofs and facilitate one solar installation every 10 minutes. Our network of over 30 leading solar installers employs more than 3,000 people. 

Power Forward.
