How to monitor your Sunrun solar system
Sunrun purchases and monitors your system for performance to ensure it performs at it’s best. If you want to know how much power your system is producing along with other useful information, you can use the My Sunrun monitoring software to watch the performance of your system.

How to use the monitoring portal
When you log in, you’ll see a bar graph that shows you how much power your system is producing by the day, week, month, or year. You can compare that information with how much power you actually use to see how much of your monthly power usage compares to the amount of power your system is producing. You can also see how much carbon your solar system is offsetting. As your system generates solar energy, the monitoring portal will share fun facts with you about the benefits that your solar energy provides the planet.
If your system includes batteries, you will see power consumption information. You can also request to see additional information such as how much power individual solar panels are producing.
Keep in mind that as a Sunrun solar PPA customer, the amount of power you purchase from Sunrun is the amount of power that is listed in your contract. The amount of power your system produces doesn’t affect your bill. But you may want to keep an eye on your power production for other reasons.
