RAYNHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Munro Distributing, a Massachusetts-based supplier of clean energy solutions, has partnered with Sunrun to offer homeowners an affordable way to install solar on their homes. Through the partnership, Munro can help homeowners go solar without spending thousands of dollars to buy and maintain the panels. Sunrun owns, maintains and insures the solar panels and the homeowner pays a low, predictable monthly rate for solar electricity.
Over time, customers can save significantly on energy costs. Plus, they know how much they’ll pay for the solar electricity for the next 20 years so there are no surprises. While utility rates rise unpredictably, Sunrun gives homeowners control and peace of mind through clean energy.
“Munro has partnered with Sunrun to offer homeowners a common-sense approach to using clean power for their homes – a step that thousands of homeowners are taking because it is practical, simple, and smart for their bank accounts,” said Glenn Maltais, VP Market Development and Sustainability at Munro. ”We take great pride in helping homeowners determine if solar power is right for their situation – and if so – we make the process simple by managing every aspect it from start-to-finish.”
“We invented this model so that Americans don’t have to choose between their wallets and the planet, and it’s now preferred in the nation’s top solar markets,” said Sunrun President and co-Founder Lynn Jurich. “Experienced local partners like Munro help us teach homeowners of all incomes about this option and fit them with a solar system and service that meets their needs.”
Munro’s renewable energy professionals guide customers through the entire process, including: system design, project and installation management, product selection, federal grants and state rebates.
