Do solar panels work in a blackout?
Solar panels alone won't work during a power outage—but when paired with solar battery storage, they can. See how solar battery storage keeps your solar systems working during an outage with reliable, renewable solar power, and why we need clean energy now more than ever
While solar panels alone do not work during a power outage, when paid with a solar battery storage system would keep your solar panels working during an outage. Sunrun's Brightbox battery storage system will divert excess solar energy your panels create to your battery and backup panel, allowing you to power essential appliances and the most important rooms in your home.

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.
