We help homeowners replace electricity they would otherwise purchase from the utility company with clean, attractively priced energy produced by a solar system that Sunrun owns and operates. Customers love our offering. In less than 5 years, we’ve built a base of tens of thousands of customers representing well over a billion in contract value. We go to market primarily via channel partners and work with the leading players in the home solar ecosystem. Our business is highly disruptive to a large ($160 billion / year) market; it brings consumer choice to an industry that has seen very little innovation over the past 100 years.
