Sunrun announces expansion plans


Sunrun, a leading installer of residential solar systems in the U.S., has announced bold expansion plans that will see more than 800 new staff added and 10 new or expanded offices at four states across the country.

The company, which currently has offices in California, Colorado, Nevada, New York, New Jersey, Hawaii and Arizona, will increase its presence in Arizona, California, Nevada and Hawaii to meet rising demand for its services.

Latest figures from Sunrun reveal a 45% increase in installations in the second quarter of this year when compared to 2013, while yearly growth projections have topped 50% as the U.S. residential solar market booms. According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), Sunrun's growth is unsurpassed in the U.S., and the company is keen to capitalize.

"Home solar installs have more than doubled in the last two years alone as Americans demand cleaner and more affordable energy like home solar,” said Sunrun CEO Lynn Jurich. "We continue to invest in the areas of our business that support high demand and high customer satisfaction.

"Sunrun's plans for continued expansion further reinforce our commitment to having the teams, operations and resources in place for long-term growth and providing a high quality customer experience."

Part of those plans include appointing 800 new members of staff in positions ranging from sales and field operations to installers, site technicians and project coordinators.

Sunrun's growth in the solar leasing market of the U.S. has been built on a series of smart partnership deals over the past few months, including a supply deal with Norway's REC and the launch of its quality assurance program, SolarBuyer.
