July 4th is all about independence: national independence, personal independence – and for more Americans each year – energy independence. Sunrun home solar is the best alternative to your utility today. Now you have a choice between dirty power and clean power, unpredictable power rates and a locked in rate for 20 years. Best of all, the switch is easy, and Sunrun’s financing options are fit for many different budgets.
What’s more, solar is helping us produce power on American soil without the need for oil imported from halfway around the world. Each home that goes solar becomes part of the solution, and that in turn inspires others to do the same. In time, distributed power could be the norm, replacing pipelines, smog clouds and the looming fear of oil spills.
As oil and coal become harder to find, companies will take more extreme risks to power our country. Fossil fuels will become more expensive and homeowners will pay more. Over all this the sun will be shining brightly, waiting to be harnessed. Some intrepid folks will absorb sunlight from their rooftops, while others will pull power from utility-scale solar farms. Even if solar isn’t right for everyone; it will ease the burden of an eventual transition into domestic energy production.
While you’re celebrating America’s independence tomorrow, give a toast for energy independence too. Domestic energy production is a fine reflection on what we can do on our own. Three cheers to you, the solar homeowner. Thank you for all you’ve done!
