SunRun Partners with OnForce Solar to Help New Yorkers Take Control of Their Electricity Costs Through Affordable Solar

Nov 3, 2011

Bronx, N.Y., Nov. 3, 2011

OnForce Solar, Inc., a prominent New York solar installer and one of the fastest growing companies in the country, announced they were selected by SunRun to offer NY residents home solar energy for a fraction of the normal cost.  SunRun owns and maintains solar panels on a homeowner's roof and OnForce manages the installation and ongoing maintenance.  A homeowner avoids high upfront costs and simply pays a low, fixed rate for clean power.

SunRun solar power service is now available to residents serviced by ConEdison Westchester, ConEdison New York City, and Orange & Rockland Utilities.  "With SunRun, New Yorkers save on their electric rates and avoid unexpected utility rate increases.  They take control of what they pay for power, and they get it from a clean source so they are doing something good for the environment," said David Sandbank, President of OnForce Solar.  "New York homeowners can now go solar without investing thousands of dollars upfront, and they don't have to worry about panel ownership and maintenance."

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) reports that the installed cost of solar has come down by 30% over the past year.  SEIA's latest report also notes that business models like SunRun's spread home solar to a wider market.  SunRun is a national home solar leader with over 15,000 customers in ten states.
