Sunrun’s home solar service is now available in South Carolina. Moreover, it brings new jobs including sales consultants, installers and project managers to the state. A local office and warehouse facility are also scheduled to be opened in Columbia.
To make going solar simpler and more affordable for homeowners, Sunrun designs, installs, finances, insures, monitors and maintains home solar systems. Initially, Sunrun will offer South Carolina homeowners the option to purchase their solar system or finance it through a third party loan arranged by Sunrun. Later this summer, Sunrun will also offer a lease whereby homeowners can simply pay a fixed monthly amount to Sunrun, reducing their home electric bill by 20% on average.
Sunrun will initially offer solar to homeowners serviced by Duke Energy, in the Greenville and Spartanburg area. Over the summer, Sunrun will also be available to residents in regions serviced by SCE&G, including the Columbia, Charleston and Hilton Head areas.
With the addition of South Carolina, Sunrun is now available in 15 states. The company's expansion into the state is largely a result of state policy-makers' leadership and commitment to make home solar available and affordable for more residents.
"We celebrate Sunrun's announcement and its job-creating investment for the Midlands," said Nikki Haley, Governor of South Carolina. "Sunrun's expansion into South Carolina is a testament to the work our state's doing to create the most competitive environment for business development in the country."
