The supplier of renewable energy systems, Sunrun Inc. (RUN), is one of the leading private sector solar panel installers in the United States. The corporation also controls over 20% of all solar systems currently in U.S. houses. The corporation is supported by a special growth strategy and acquisitions in emerging markets to further monetize its innovations.
In fact, Sunrun itself funds the construction of solar panels in private homes of Americans. This means a very fast consumer base growth, as a one-time large-scale commitment from customers is not needed. In exchange, homeowners make long-term promises to cover monthly payments, which in turn give a stable cash flow to Sunrun.
Sunrun also raises the value of its deal to clients steadily, allowing it to raise monthly payments. The company has raised cash flows per home installation with the launch of the Sunrun Brightbox home storage solution. The organization expanded its storage capacity by 45 percent year-on-year during the third quarter of 2020. In 2021, management expects the speed of attaching storage batteries to double.
But the virtual power plant, or VPP, is one of the most interesting fields of Sunrun. A VPP power plant is an arrangement during high demand hours to provide electricity to a conventional utility provider. Such agreements allow Sunrun, on request, to sell energy already stored (and usually unused in the home batteries of customers) to a local utility. As a consequence, it raises the profitability of the cash flows that the enterprise currently earns from the same homeowner. Sunrun said it expects the company to raise the net margin created by each client by 25 percent in the third quarter.
Sunrun is therefore expanding its position in conventional markets, but is also opening up new fields of promise that will continue to increase sales and marginality.
Sunrun Inc. (RUN) rose 16.53 percent to $85.17 on Wednesday as the investor remained investing in the green energy stocks before the President-announced Joe Biden will take charge on January 20.
