Sunrun and PG&E launch storage initiative

February 20, 2023

Residential solar and battery storage company Sunrun and Californian utility Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) have launched an “energy reliability program” to provide support from residential solar and battery systems during the state’s hottest months, when demand for energy is highest and energy supplies are tighter. Through the ‘Energy Efficiency Summer Reliability Program’, Sunrun will enroll up to 7,500 new and existing residential home solar and battery systems in PG&E’s service area into the program, creating a virtual power plant capable of discharging 30MW of clean energy back to the grid.
