Sunrun believes that everyone has the right to take control of their electric bill. We offer homeowners a totally new way to go solar, by eliminating high upfront costs and selling electricity generated by panels on our customers' roofs. Our goal is to make home solar financially beneficial and easy for every homeowner.
With over 20,000 customers, Sunrun is the nation's leading home solar company. Available in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Pennsylvania, Sunrun owns and maintains systems on thousands of homes, more than any other company.
Sunrun makes solar easy and affordable by offering solar power as a service, also known as Sunrun Solar Service. With Sunrun Solar Service, we purchase the panels for you and take care of everything from start to finish, so you don't have to worry about high upfront costs, installation, or how panels operate.
Sunrun partners with the leading local installers in each state, to ensure both local expertise and high quality installation. Together, Sunrun's partner network employs 3,000 people -- up from 2,000 a year ago. Sunrun places in service $1.5 million in home solar systems on a daily basis.
Sunrun is also a featured solar provider in The Home Depot and Toll Brothers pre-installs Sunrun solar systems in select new homes.
Sunrun is growing quickly and looking for the best and brightest to bring clean solar power to homes across the nation. At Sunrun, you're more than part of a company - you're part of a solution to one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century.
Sunrun was founded by Ed Fenster and Lynn Jurich, who met as classmates at Stanford's Graduate School of Business. Both had strong finance and business experience, and after a summer working in China, Lynn realized that reducing pollution and stabilizing energy costs are some of the biggest challenges to the U.S. and to other countries. Both Lynn and Ed turned down offers to return to the finance industry, and focused all of their energy developing Sunrun, which launched its first residential solar financing plan in California in 2007.
Sunrun put its first home solar power system on the roof of Ed Fenster's home, which the company also used as its first office. Although Sunrun has long since relocated to business offices, it has kept its focus squarely on homeowners.
Sunrun has financing for over $1 billion in solar systems from investors including PG&E Corporation and U.S. Bancorp and $85 million in corporate equity capital from Sequoia Capital, Accel Partners, and Foundation Capital. Sunrun founders were also jointly named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2010.
"Going solar is all about reducing energy costs, and Sunrun offers the easiest, most affordable way to do it. Sunrun takes care of everything, and we pay less for energy."
