Utility prices are rising and global warming isn’t going anywhere.  Something needs to be done.  Affordable solar with SunRun finally gives homeowners a choice; SunRun home solar is the best alternative to your utility today – not only is it clean, but you can lock in your current electricity rates for the future. No more unpredictable utility rate hikes!

What does SunRun think?  All of the above.  We believe that the BP oil spill has been the most recent reminder that we need to shift to clean power – a wake-up call to our nation to act.  In fact, we even started a 10,000 Solar Roofs in 2010 cause on Facebook to spread awareness about affordable, clean solar power.  Over 200 members and 7 solar companies have taken up the cause.  It’s heartening to see that people are coming together to create  a clean solar community.  It’s time to think big and act big – and we need everyone’s help.

Check out the comments on our Energy Independence Day blogpost to see what homeowners across the nation think about clean energy and going solar!
