US-based residential PV installer Sunrun has reached a total of 100,000 household solar customers, whose PV systems have generated more than 1.3TWh of electricity.
Sunrun claims their installations will have saved customers more than US$100 million on electricity bills.
The firm has been designing, installing, financing, insuring, monitoring and maintaining home solar systems since establishing solar as its service model in 2007.
Lynn Jurich, chief executive officer of Sunrun, said: “Sunrun is proud to have helped over 100,000 customers enjoy the benefits of clean solar power and pay less for their electricity. We strive to create an excellent customer experience to earn and keep our customers' loyalty, and we look forward to helping even more families make the switch to solar and save money.
“We want to thank all of our customers, partners and employees for helping Sunrun achieve this major milestone and driving toward our mission of creating a planet run by the sun.”
In August, Sunrun raised US$251 million following its flotation on the NASDAQ stock exchange.
Also in August, hundreds of pro-solar protestors and representatives from industry and advocacy groups marched on California’s state capital, intent on defending net metering policies and lobbying for extension of the investment tax credit (ITC). At the time a representative from Sunrun said that above all the industry craves certainty and net metering is the only state-level support scheme proven to assist deployment.
