Sunrun Inc. and Comcast announced an agreement designed to accelerate the adoption of solar energy. Under the 40-month agreement, Sunrun will be the residential solar energy provider for Comcast Cable, and Comcast Cable will serve as one of Sunrun's strategic partners.
"At Sunrun, we know homeowners love the savings, backup power and control they get with our solar energy and storage plans," said Lynn Jurich, Chief Executive Officer at Sunrun. "Our challenge is making homeowners aware that they can save money with solar today. We are excited to work with Comcast to help their customers go solar and save on their electric bills while reducing their dependence on fossil fuels."
Jon Kaplowitz, Managing Director and GM of New Businesses, Comcast Cable, said, "We believe the residential solar industry will continue to expand over the next decade as consumers look for more cost-efficient, independent and cleaner alternatives for their energy. By working with Sunrun, Comcast can help customers take more control of the price they pay for energy, save them money and help contribute to cleaner communities."
