SunWize Partners with SunRun for Simpler Home Solar Power in California

Latest Offering Makes Solar Accessible to Larger Segment of State's Population

Kingston, NY - March 2, 2011 -SunWize Systems, the premier solar installation group of SunWize Technologies, Inc., today announced it has partnered with SunRun, the nation's leading home solar service company. This partnership allows SunWize to offer California homeowners more affordable solar power options, often for less than they pay their utility.

SunWize and SunRun will offer solar electricity service agreements to residential customers. With SunRun's unique solar power service, homeowners can qualify for no money upfront or pay a small one-time system installation fee and then low monthly bills for solar energy. The one-time system installation fee is a fraction of the normal $30,000 to $50,000 cost of buying a system. SunRun's agreements also include monitoring, repairs, insurance and a performance guarantee for no additional cost, offering homeowners simplicity and peace of mind when switching to solar power.
"The ability for homeowners to finance solar electric systems has been a barrier to growth for the residential market," said David Kaltsas, Systems Group president at SunWize. "However, demand for solar energy continues to grow and with this SunRun partnership, we will certainly be able to provide clean and renewable solar power to a broader range of customers."
"We look forward to working with SunWize to bring affordable solar to more homeowners and provide them with dedicated service," said Lynn Jurich, president and co-founder of SunRun. "Solar power service will change the way millions of Americans power their homes, and high-quality organizations like SunWize are essential to achieving that goal."
