Sunetric partners with SunRun to Bring a New Energy Alternative to the Islands

Making the switch to solar just got a lot less expensive in Hawaii. Sunetric, Hawaii’s largest locally owned and operated solar installer, announced an agreement today with San Francisco-based SunRun, the country’s leading residential solar electricity company, to remove the biggest barrier to going solar – cost.  The new program is being rolled out on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island.<br/><br/> Under the plan, residents can go solar for as little as $0 down with a predictable, controlled monthly payment that saves up to 15% on electricity costs.  Hawaii’s electricity rates tend to be significantly higher than the mainland, and the new SunRun Power Plan help insulate against unpredictable price increases.  SunRun fronts the costs for qualified residential Photovoltaic systems.  Sunetric designs, installs and services them.  The systems are insured and monitored by SunRun.<br/><br/> “This program opens the floodgates for Hawaii resident who want to switch  to solar,” said Sunetric CEO Alex Tiller.  ”Starting today, solar power will become attainable for virtually every Hawaii homeowner.”   When homeowners enroll, they begin buying their electricity from a non fossil fuel, renewable energy company, instead of the local utility.  “Hawaii residents haven’t had any choice about the energy they’ve bought in the past,” said Tiller. “Now they have little reason to stop them from going solar and saving money while doing what’s right for Hawaii’s energy future.”<br/><br/> On The Web:<br/><br/>“This supports the local economy with jobs and opportunities. According to Alex Tiller, CEO of Sunetric, This program opens the floodgates for every homeowner who wants to switch to solar. Thanks to SunRun, Hawaii will reduce its dependence on fossil fuels while taking control of its power bills. Additionally, Sunetric will be able to grow its team and stimulate much-needed job growth in the Islands.”<br/><br/><br/> “Alex Tiller, chief executive officer of Sunetric, said the structure of the SunRun program eliminates the financing issue that had been preventing many homeowners from installing PV systems.”<br/><br/><br/>“Homeowners on Oahu, Maui and the Big Island can now pay little to no upfront costs for the installation of PV systems and enter into a 20-year contract with a locked-in monthly rate that is at or below the current cost of electricity provided by Hawaiian Electric Co.”<br/><br/><br/>“Homeowners continue to tell us that their electricity prices are too high and unpredictable, and that’s why we want to offer them the best alternative to their utility company,” said Lynn Jurich, president of SunRun. “Our solar power service now makes solar a reality for homeowners in Hawaii by removing the high upfront cost.”<br/><br/><br/>“It’s a first for our state! Local solar companies Sunetric And RevoluSun have formed partnerships with SunRun, a national company that offers Photovoltaic systems to homeowners in conjunction with local solar companies. It’s an agreement similar to a lease. Here’s how it works: the local company (Sunetric or RevoluSun) designs, installs and services the PV equipment locally while SunRun owns, monitors and insures the panels. It’s like no-risk, minimal-cost PV rental.”<br/><br/> Other websites…<br/>Solar Panels for Homes<br/>Fuel Saver News<br/>Brighter Energy<br/>Greentech Solar<br/>iStockAnalyst<br/>eSolar Energy News<br/>Yahoo Finance<br/>CNBC<br/>ZDNet<br/>CentreDaily<br/>Solar Power News and Info<br/>Questpoint Solar Solutions<br/>BusinessWire<br/>SunRun<br/>
