California — Sunrun announced a new partnership with Lowe’s Companies to provide households with solar and storage services inside of hundreds of Lowe’s stores across the country.

Sunrun says its customers will soon be able to experience and learn more about Sunrun’s solar, storage, and clean energy technology products while visiting 430 Lowe’s store locations.

The partnership leverages Sunrun’s solar-as-a-service subscription model, which eliminates financial barriers and upfront costs for millions of customers.

“We are excited to offer Lowe’s shoppers a clean, affordable way to power their homes, one that provides energy independence and resilience against climate events and rising utility costs. As the nation’s leading provider of solar energy with storage, this exciting partnership with Lowe’s makes connecting with new customers even easier,” said Sunrun CEO Mary Powell. “Having a strong presence in Lowe’s stores provides an enjoyable and comfortable environment where homeowners can have discussions about transitioning to a more modern way of powering a clean energy lifestyle.”

“Our customers rely on Lowe’s to introduce innovative products and services that truly improve homes and lives while providing the best value and service,” said Ram Krishnamurthy, senior vice president of Home Services at Lowe’s. “Sunrun matches our mission perfectly as homeowners look to lower their power bills, consume cleaner energy, and use at-home batteries to safeguard against power outages.”

Sunrun representatives have started staffing more than 260 Lowe’s stores in 10 states, including California, Illinois, and Texas, and are now available to answer questions and guide customers through the process of going solar at their homes.

Sunrun anticipates expanding into another 160 Lowe’s stores throughout the year.
