Company: Solar Universe
LIVERMORE, CALIFORNIA–(Marketwire – Aug. 28, 2012) – Solar Universe Network, a top five consumer solar company in California, today announced a strategic partnership with Sunrun that will make affordable solar accessible to more American homeowners. Consumers in six states can now opt for Sunrun’s solar service through Solar Universe’s vast network to avoid the high upfront cost of installing solar.
“This really changes the landscape and creates a new leader in the solar energy category,” said Joe Bono, CEO of Solar Universe. “Nobody can compete with our local reach, and now, we can offer our customers a superior alternative to grid power that is less expensive.”
One of the biggest barriers consumers face in entering the solar market is the high upfront cost. The average cost of a solar home installation is estimated at around $30,000. The partnership between Solar Universe and Sunrun removes the barrier by allowing more local communities access to low-cost payment options, such as little or nothing upfront.
