Sunrun announced a new partnership with Lowe’s Companies, Inc. today to sell its solar + storage products and services from 430 Lowe’s store locations across the country.

“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,” 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.”

The aim of the partnership is to make home solar + storage more accessible and affordable to homes across the nation by leveraging Sunrun’s solar-as-a-service subscription model, which eliminates financial barriers and upfront costs for millions of customers.

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.

“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.”

Under Sunrun’s subscription service, systems are backed by the company’s production guarantee, comprehensive warranty, and proactive monitoring, ensuring decades of reliable service and exceptional customer experiences.

“Joining forces with Lowe’s is key to Sunrun’s diversified go-to-market strategy,” Powell added. “Lowe’s customer base is overwhelmingly homeowners, which means Sunrun will have more opportunities to showcase the cost benefits, peace of mind, and premium experience families enjoy from adding solar paired with storage to their homes.”
