How can I prepare for rolling blackouts in my area?
Solar power is one of the ways that federal and local governments are looking to improve the ability of the power grid to handle spikes in demand.
Also, solar-powered homes reduce the demand for power on the grid and can provide excess power to the grid.
Is it better to lease or buy solar panels?
With a solar lease, for as little as zero down you lock in a low, predictable rate that will protect you against rising utility cost.
You avoid doing your own maintenance and repairs with our service package and system performance guarantee. When you lease with Sunrun you can set it and forget-about-it. We do all the work and you sit back and collect savings that would otherwise go to your local utility.
For those who would rather own their system, the benefits are clear. Purchasing your system with Sunrun will increase the value of your home. Also, purchasing your system means you will qualify for a federal solar tax credit.
Stop by our kiosk at The Home Depot in Oakbrook Terrace or call us at 833-394-3388 and our experts and review all of your financing and purchasing options.
Will I still have an electric bill?
Yes, you will still have an electric bill. Your house will still be connected to the electric grid and you will receive a monthly bill from your electric company.
With a Sunrun system, you can expect to see a much lower bill from your local electric company. Also, excess electricity that you send into the grid may earn you credits towards your bill.
