Residential Solar Designed to
Fit Your Needs…
Cookie cutters are for baking, not building your home’s solar power system!
Your home is unique—you need a solar company that is focused on meeting your distinctive needs.
Run on Sun knows that every home presents its own set of challenges, and meeting those challenges with a system design and installation specifically tailored to your home is one of the things that sets us apart.
Every design is custom crafted and driven by your energy usage, your building constraints, and your budget.
Every installation enhances the beauty of your home while simultaneously surpassing every code requirement.
How does this work?
As part of our design process, we will analyze your bills for the past year to determine the proper size for a solar power system.
- For SCE customers who are billed according to a tiered rate structure (that is, energy usage in the first two tiers is relatively cheap but gets progressively more expensive as you use more), the goal of a residential system should be to take you out of the upper tiers, thereby maximizing your savings without over-purchasing for your needs.
- For customers billed under a flat-rate structure (such as in Pasadena), every kilowatt hour costs the same, but often other charges—such as your customer charge—go up as your usage increases.
Run on Sun has developed sophisticated billing models for the utilities in our service area, and we will use them to help you see what your true savings will be.
The result? A unique design that enhances the value of your home by meeting your needs, not ours.
Don't take our word for it—hear what our clients say…
“I am very pleased with the solar array installed by Run on Sun.
I was impressed with how straightforward they made all the interactions
with PWP, their neat, professional workmanship, and their willingness to accommodate our schedule.
I've been pleasantly surprised with the amount of power generated by the system even in the dark days of December, and I'm looking forward to years of lower electricity bills.”
Jane T, Pasadena
Veteran clients are just as pleased, years later, as Jane is today…
As gratifying as Jane's comments are, it is even more satisfying to hear from people who decided to install solar with Run on Sun years ago.
Case in point, Lisa installed solar on her Pasadena home in the spring of 2008. How has the system held up for her and would she do it again? Just listen…
Lisa is not alone, check out what Jeannine has to say…
“The Run on Sun team did a terrific job providing solar power to my home.
I received detailed information and status reports throughout the project. The entire Run on Sun team is top notch: reliable, on time, efficient and clean! And the best pay-off: my electric bill was $0.87 this month!”
Jeannine F, Altadena
In the end, not just happy customers, but elated clients…
“We had Run on Sun install our solar panels on our home in Pasadena and couldn't be more pleased.
They dealt with the city on our behalf, we did not have to do a thing. The installation was quick and they made sure our rebate was processed quickly. We got several quotes and Run on Sun was very comparable to the industry.
Our electric bills are so small, we are elated.”
Michael M, Pasadena
“I am quite happy with my decision to go solar, having chosen Run on Sun to do the installation.
They are very professional in their work, very careful to install everything correctly and will not try to oversell what is needed for the project. They worked with DWP to make sure that everything was done to the city's specifications.”
Janet L, Venice
Sometimes, serving our client's best interest means saying no. We do that, too…
Run on Sun is an honest company that prioritizes the experience of their customers above all else,
even at the expense of their own profit. When I contacted Jim Jenal from Run on Sun to see if a solar panel installation would
be a good option for my home, Jim immediately responded to my inquiries and scheduled a site visit.
He spent an hour inspecting my home, reviewing my electricity usage, and explaining the technology behind solar.
In the end, he recommended that I NOT install solar panels due to my energy consumption and other factors.
While other solar companies made bids and tried to convince me to install solar, Run on Sun cared more about whether
or not I was truly a good candidate for solar.
Jim Jenal is honest, responsive, and generous with his time and knowledge. His company truly cares about their clients, and they will not convince you to purchase something that is not right for you. Without a doubt, I recommend Run on Sun for anyone interested in installing solar panels!

But what products should you use for your home?
Last year alone, more than 200 different brands of solar modules, and more than 70 different inverter manufacturers had products installed in California. Given that dizzying universe of choices, how are you to know what to use on your home?
That is where our expertise comes into play. We have sifted through those choices and settled on a single product pair for our residential projects: solar modules from LG Electronics and microinverters from Enphase Energy. These two products provide the performance, reliability and features that help make our clients so happy.

LG Solar Modules make Life Good…

You need your solar modules to be reliable, and backed by a name you can trust.

One of the world's true industrial giants, LG has the resources to stay in the game for the long haul—and that's particularly important at a time of consolidation in the solar module marketplace.
But most of all, LG understands that the details matter, and you can see that attention to detail in every step of their manufacturing process as their video shows.

Just how affordable is solar? More affordable than you think…
Prices have never been better, and the value of solar equipment today is outstanding. Combine that with a generous federal tax credit of 30% and innovative loan programs that work for you, not some leasing company, and there has never been a better time to go solar.
So stop waiting—now is the time for you to start saving.
Just how bad are your electric bills?
