SunRun Brings Pennsylvania Homeowners Clean Alternative to Utility Electricity

San Francisco, CA, August 13, 2010 --( SunRun, the nation's leading home solar provider, launched this week in Pennsylvania, bringing homeowners the choice of clean, affordable electricity. SunRun offers solar service plans, similar to a solar lease, allowing homeowners to go solar for as little as $0 upfront after state rebates. More than 5,000 homeowners have chosen SunRun for clean electricity across New Jersey, Massachusetts, Arizona, California, and Colorado, and SunRun is now available for the first time in Pennsylvania.

With SunRun, homeowners pay a controlled rate for solar electricity generated on their roof, protecting them from unpredictable rate increases. In the first year, a typical homeowner can save 5-15 percent on electricity costs, and much more over time. SunRun customers never have to worry about the solar system on their roof because SunRun takes care of monitoring, maintenance, repairs, and solar insurance on every system as part of the service plan.

“We are excited to welcome SunRun to Pennsylvania to grow the solar industry and drive local job creation,” says John Hanger, Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. “Third-party ownership provides a valuable service to homeowners by taking the worry out of investing and making solar more affordable and reliable.”

SunRun partners with leading regional solar integrators for sales and installation, creating local green jobs in the state. In Pennsylvania, SunRun will partner with Alteris Renewables, groSolar, Mercury Solar Systems, and Trinity Solar, four of the highest quality solar integrators in the mid-Atlantic region.

“Thousands of families across the country are choosing clean, locally-generated electricity,” said Lynn Jurich, President of SunRun. “We applaud the state of Pennsylvania for supporting the solar market and making it an attractive place for companies like SunRun to do business. We expect our partners will be able to reach more homeowners with SunRun and expand their local workforce as a result.”
