Our world is getting smarter.

Smarter phones. Smarter technology. Smarter innovations. So why are we still in the dark when it comes to energy? That’s what drives Sunrun to do what we do every day: provide planet-changing home solar in a simple, inexpensive, low-risk way.

The Sunrun vision is to create a planet run by the sun—because we know it’s the one world-changing difference every one of us can all make. We've already helped tens of thousands of homeowners make the switch and we're constantly looking for new ways to make solar accessible to even more homeowners. We're excited for what's ahead and believe this is just the beginning.
