Can You Guess Which Company is the Top Solar Installer in US Homes?

SunRun, Inc.* is the top installer in the US residential solar market, leading in home solar and batteries. The company has held this position for a fifth year running in 2021, with nearly four gigawatts of Networked Solar Energy Capacity.

The Green Century Balanced Fund is an investor in SunRun. 

As Green Century promotes a transition to a clean energy economy, SunRun is helping lead this change with affordable local solar and battery solutions. SunRun’s rechargeable solar battery systems deliver reliable clean energy to American households, which helps build a more resilient energy system.

Sunrun’s rechargeable solar battery, Brightbox, was first available regionally and in 2020, was launched in all of the company’s markets, including eight additional states and Washington, D.C. 

The company’s mission is to “create a planet run by the sun and build an affordable energy system that combats climate change and provides energy access for all.”  Since solar and batteries can operate economically at small scale and can be located where energy is consumed, it is the reliable energy source that our homes, communities, and country need.

Green Century believes that solar energy will play an increasingly important role as we work to speed the transition to a clean energy economy. Solar energy is the ultimate renewable energy and we believe SunRun has earned its place in our Fund.   

The Green Century Balanced Fund (GCBUX, GCBLX) is an actively managed mutual fund that invests in stocks of companies that meet high environmental criteria and has more than 60% of its fixed income holdings in green bonds.
