According to the company, Sunrun BrightBox combines Sunrun solar power generation with smart inverter technology and home battery storage in a customized solution that provides homeowners with clean, affordable energy both day and night. Sunrun asserts that the product, which is now available to Hawaii homeowners, will help solar continue to grow nationwide and allow more consumers to save on their electric bills.
The company designed this offering so that in states like Hawaii, where utility constraints have reduced consumer choice, families will be able to generate solar power during the day and store excess electricity for use at night. Sunrun says that Hawaii homeowners who choose Sunrun BrightBox will be prioritized for installation by their local utility under the state’s Self-Supply Program.
Per the company press release, Sunrun BrightBox will be offered to new solar customers in Hawaii through a monthly or prepaid lease for little to no money down. For homeowners who prefer to own their system, Sunrun adds that it has cash and customized financing options, as well.
Sunrun is currently working to install Sunrun BrightBox at the home of its first customer in Honolulu, according to the release, and expects to offer the product to homeowners in other U.S. regions later this year.
