Solar power provider Sunrun strikes Powerwall home energy storage deal with Tesla
Residential solar power company Sunrun is collaborating with Tesla Motors to expand access to renewable energy storage systems for homeowners across the country
As part of the agreement, AEE Solar, a nationwide distributor of solar products and a unit of Sunrun will add Tesla's recently announced Powerwall Home Battery to its line of energy storage offerings sold for use in homes.
"We believe the next evolution of solar as a service is home solar paired with storage and we look forward to adding Tesla and its new energy storage for consumers to our extensive line of battery offerings," said Paul Winnowski, Sunrun's chief operating officer. "This partnership builds upon Sunrun's approach to grow consumer adoption of home solar through a variety of channels and partners."
The agreement also expands Sunrun's energy storage program to include new types of storage solutions. Through its AEE unit, Sunrun will be able to make these solutions available to the entire solar energy industry.
