Florida regulators unanimously voted to grant Sunrun’s Petition for Declaratory Statement regarding its solar lease product proposal. Until this vote, households in Florida were unable to lease solar systems. Leases are dropping in popularity, but are still a powerful option for driving residential solar adoption for homeowners looking to go solar without steep upfront costs. Sunrun will also fully maintain the system, offering households a hassle-free option for going solar.
“The Commission’s vote to grant our petition is a critical step toward broadening access to solar energy for Floridian households,” said Anne Hoskins, Chief Policy Officer of Sunrun. “We are grateful for the time the Commission and technical staff spent promptly reviewing our petition and our Florida lease product, and look forward to bringing additional solar energy choice to more people in the Sunshine State soon.”
Homeowners can get started for little to $0 down and pay a low, predictable rate to lease the solar system. Sunrun expects to start accepting orders in select markets in the coming months, in accordance with the Commission’s final ruling.
“Sunrun is delighted to now be able to offer Floridians the opportunity to lease a solar system, enabling them to have clean, reliable, affordable solar power for their homes,” said Lynn Jurich, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Sunrun.
