Sunrun Inc. is improving access to home solar in Florida by offering solar-as-a-service and its Brightbox home battery.
"Freedom is a value Americans hold dear. In offering Floridians solar-as-a-service, households in the Sunshine State are given the freedom to make, control, and store their own energy," said Lynn Jurich, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Sunrun. "Unfortunately, too many Floridians have experienced first hand the effects of extreme weather and power outages. Home solar and batteries provide peace of mind and backup power when disaster strikes, keeping food fresh and the lights on."
"Affordable and resilient, home solar also contributes to a healthier environment for households and communities across the state. Home solar is already playing a major role in America's future energy system, and Sunrun is thrilled to lead the industry as Florida embraces this technology."
"Sunrun's new solar lease will give Central Florida residents greater access clean energy choices, lower energy costs, and continued momentum for local job growth in our state's renewable energy market," State Senator Linda Stewart (D-Orlando) said. "This is the Sunshine State and Floridians should be able to take full advantage of an abundant, emissions-free energy source that contributes to a healthier community while remaining affordable."
"As an advocate for consumer choice, I am excited to see new options for Floridians that will make solar more affordable and accessible to residents across the state," said State Senator Jeff Brandes (R-St. Petersburg). "With our population projected to grow by five million people by 2030, the time for Floridians to invest in energy diversity is now."
