SunRun got back to us right away and installed it right away. I have three panels because I thought we would get more from it. It just doesn't seem to have lowered our bills I don't think.

Excellent set up, but the company does little follow up to check the efficiency of the system. We were promised significant savings but our actual savings has turned out to be only a couple hundred dollars over the whole year.

They did a good job, but they did not tell me that I would noy be powering my house, I would be powering the grid. Even in the event of a blackout I would not have access to the power generated by my own panels.

Over all poor follow through. I was told I would receive assistance in completing rebate paperwork, that did not occur. I was told I would receive a federal tax rebate, found out later it was a tax credit, big difference. I received a call thanking me for recommending a friend and if they installed panels I would receive a $350 bonus. The people I recommended have had panels for a year and I have still not received the bonus after several emails with no response. I will be strongly recommending a different service to friends you inquire about my panels.

They could have kept me better informed through the process. Since installing SunRun I've had no electric bill so I think they put in the right size system. The instillation process went fine and there were no issues.

Sunrunning away with my money Simpsonville, SC

App is glitchy. Had to jump through a lot of hoops to get my savings analysis, probably because they know I'm losing money. When I finally got the analysis, I saw I was essentially losing an average of $50 a month leasing solar panels from Sunrun. I have emailed and called and left a voicemail to discuss these results and someone coming to check my system for maximum effectiveness, but have received no reply. That is why I rate this company poorly.

Billing practices very bad. Unable to set up automatic payment through credit card. I have to pay $7.50 a month for paper Billings. I do not permit direct access to my bank accounts. This for reasons of overall security.

Reply from Sunrun

We offer a discount for making your monthly payments using autopayment because of the additional resources needed to process checks every month. If we didn't have auto-payment processing 80,000 checks manually would be very expensive and time-consuming. You are not required to sign up for automatic payments. However, you will see the ACH opt-out adjustment $ 7.50 on your solar bills each month. If you change your mind, you can sign up for automatic payments using your checking or savings account on the customer website or by calling this number.

I feel I was misled on how sun run works and I am constantly paying two bills for electrical, so it's not worth it. The equipment is working but it's not working at max capacity as promised. They put me into a contract to lease their equipment and guarantee me at installation a reduced bills to only one payment but I am still making another payment.

Reply from Sunrun

Hello Nikola, we are so sorry to hear about your experience this is not the Sunrun norm. Keep in mind that the size of your utility bill is based on your usage. If your bill is higher than last year, you may be using more power than last year. Since your Sunrun rate is lower than that of your utility, that means you'd be paying even more for your current usage without solar. In other words, you're still saving.

I liked the salesman that sold me the product. The installation process was fine and they were professional about it. I haven't had a problem with the equipment, it has worked the way it is supposed to. They were supposed to perform an analysis or me and they haven't and I have been waiting since last October. I was not happy with the year, I felt I had paid more than I should have. My electric bill was more than it would have been without solar.

After install was performed, customer service was poor. They were not trained to answer questions about the backup battery.

Their plan is somewhat expensive and the savings are minimal and includes a 2.5% annual increase per year. I didn't like the mandatory increase. That was the biggest reason why we didn't go with Sunrun.

5 years ago

Sunrun Logo

Reply from Sunrun

Hello Wynn, thank you for sharing your experience. We understand your main concerns with the 2.5% increase. We want to provide more info on this matter. You able to opt in an agreement that doesn't include the annual increase. This is to account for economic inflation over the next 20 years. By comparison, utility rates tend to rise at a rate of 4-6% per year on average. Since the annual increase never changes, the customer can still anticipate their costs over the next 20 years. Keep in mind that the size of your utility bill is based on your usage. If your bill is higher than last year, you may be using more power than last year. Since your Sunrun rate is lower than that of your utility, that means you'd be paying even more for your current usage without solar. In other words, you're still saving.
