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 Comcast’s service territory. (Sunrun currently operates in 22 states across the country.) While the Comcast-Sunrun partnership has been active for many year, the company announced an expansion of the program in August 2017.
Active Comcast customer can sign up with Sunrun for a solar system installation, which could include customer-owned systems or a solar lease or power purchase agreement (PPA). In a solar lease or PPA, Sunrun installs 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.
