MENIFEE, CALIF. (PRWEB) MARCH 16, 2022 - iPower Energy, a solar energy service provider of home solar and battery storage, today announced that they have begun offering Sunrun’s power purchase agreement (PPA) as another option for homeowners who want to switch to solar. iPower Energy will leverage Sunrun’s industry-leading solar services to make it easier for homeowners to enjoy the benefits of solar energy, without carrying the debt of owning solar panels, and without the headache and hassle of maintenance and repairs. iPower Energy will deliver Sunrun solar services through their installation partner, Energy Service Partners, who, like Sunrun, provides and distributes their services in a manner that best serves the customer.
“Owning solar panels is not the only path to enjoying the benefits of solar energy. While owning solar panels has its benefits, taking on the added debt of a solar loan and the responsibility of maintaining and repairing a solar system should be carefully considered,” said Joel Hall, Managing Director at iPower Energy. “Sunrun’s solar as a service model offers a unique advantage to homeowners who wish to benefit from solar power without taking on any debt, and without the cost of system care and upkeep.”
Sunrun Inc. (Nasdaq: RUN) is the leading residential solar, battery storage, and energy services company in the United States. Sunrun systems have generated nearly four gigawatts of clean, reliable solar energy and saved customers hundreds of millions of dollars on their electricity bills since the company’s founding in 2007.
“We know saving money on rising electricity rates and selling a home with solar, trouble-free, are two of the biggest priorities for homeowners shopping for solar services, “ Says Hall. “With a Sunrun PPA homeowners can still switch to solar and save money by purchasing the power generated by the solar panels on their roof, at a lower price than the utility. And, if a customer decides to sell their home, Sunrun has a team of service transfer experts who guarantee a seamless agreement transfer to the new buyer."
iPower Energy currently offers solar panel ownership with value-added solar services that include monthly solar health checks, annual panel cleaning, and a Pearl home solar certification packet that helps homeowners better demonstrate the value solar panels can add to their home. By offering Sunrun’s PPA, iPower Energy will be encouraging the adoption of more residential solar, better aligning solar services with the needs of homeowners, and elevating the solar-buying experience.
