SAN FRANCISCO – (Business Wire) SunRun, the nation’s leading home solar company, has received a 2010 Green Power Leadership Award from the Department of Energy (DOE) for its clean and affordable solar power service. A superior alternative to the utility, SunRun allows homeowners to go solar for as little as $0 down and accelerates job creation. The DOE selected SunRun as an award-winning green power supplier because its solar power service supports increased market deployment of renewable energy technologies on a national scale.
With solar power service, SunRun owns and maintains the solar system while the homeowner enjoys the benefits of the power the system produces: lower household energy bills, clean energy, and the peace of mind that comes from taking control of electricity prices. With more than 6,000 customers, SunRun is growing at nearly 300 percent year-over-year, building more than $1 million in systems every day, and fueling job growth for installation partners across seven states.
“SunRun is already spurring economic growth in Hawaii, and we just launched here in September,” said Alex Tiller, CEO of SunRun partner Sunetric. SunRun also partners with RevoluSun in Hawaii. “Last month alone, Sunetric hired 45 people,” continued Tiller. “Nearly half of those hires will focus on SunRun installations, and Sunetric doesn’t see this trend changing. In order to keep up with the demand for solar energy in our islands, we’ll continue to work with SunRun to offer Hawaii workers an abundance of new green job opportunities.”
“Programs like the Green Power Leadership Awards help inspire a commitment to constant innovation, and we’re honored to receive this award for the way our solar power service is transforming solar from niche to mainstream,” said Lynn Jurich, president of SunRun. “We want all homeowners to recognize SunRun as a clean, affordable, and reliable service, and our greatest competition right now is the homeowner who does nothing and stays with their utility.”
As SunRun scales, it continues to focus relentlessly on quality and service. The company owns, maintains, and guarantees the performance of its systems for 20 years and builds the highest-quality systems on the market.

SunRun, the nation’s leading home solar company, is the smart and affordable choice for homeowners who want a clean alternative to their utility. SunRun offers solar power service, similar to a lease, allowing homeowners to upgrade their home to solar for as little as $0 upfront and simply pay monthly for solar electricity. More than 6,000 homeowners have chosen SunRun across Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. SunRun partners with over 25 leading local solar installers, who together employ more than 2,500 green-collar workers.
