As the cost of solar continues to fall and the financial and environmental benefits of solar PV grow, more organizations are collaborating to provide reasonably priced solar options to homeowners. For example, National Grid recently announced that it is partnering with EnergySage to offer a solar marketplace option to its Rhode Island customers. Recently, Comcast also announced a partnership: the cable company will offer a discounted solar option to its customers through an exclusive partnership with Sunrun.

Comcast Solar Partnership with Sunrun Gives Discounts to Customers
So how does Comcast’s solar program work? The cable giant has partnered with Sunrun, a residential solar installer, to offer home solar panel systems to Comcast customers in select areas in California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maryland, New York, Colorado, and Connecticut.
Active Comcast customers in those areas can sign up with Sunrun for a 20-year $0 down solar lease or power purchase agreement (PPA). Sunrun will install a solar panel system on the customer’s roof, and in exchange, the customer must pay either a fixed monthly rate (in the case of a solar lease) or a fixed per-kilowatt hour rate (in the case of a PPA) for 20 years. In both cases, the rate of payment to Sunrun will increase by a fixed amount each year. Typically, that increase is around three percent, which will theoretically be lower than the growth of utility electricity rates.
According to the Comcast-Sunrun partnership website, customers can save 20 percent on their electricity bill by installing a system through the program. Once the system is installed, Comcast will pay a $600 cash bonus to the homeowner – a significant step that the company has taken to encourage more solar installations among its customers.
